    I don't think there are many pick up games of C&C. 5e you probably would find traction given the majority of users are there or so the numbers tell us.

    If you are just hanging around hoping to get into a game, the Teamspeak server has a LFG room. I've seen the occasional person sitting in there waiting/hoping someone will invite them into a current game for the evening.

    Oh and check your email.

    Thanks for 7+ years of gaming via FG my friends (3.5e / Rolemaster Classic / Castles & Crusades / Pathfinder / Savage Worlds / 5E).

    There/Their/They're are all different words and do not mean the same thing.

    The Fantasy Grounds community hasn't embraced the idea of pick-up games. Occasionally you'll see someone advertise on the forums "Hey, I'm going to run a game in a couple of hours, anyone interested?"

    The fact that there are usually more players than GMs (for popular games - the type that might be successful in a pick-up environment) allows a GM to advertise ahead of time and get a bunch of players sorted before they plan to run the game. And most GMs on the forums run campaigns, not one-offs. Even for one-offs, most FG GMs will advertise ahead of time - so they'll know if they're going to have some players.

    If you're looking to get a game together and haven't had much success, then some people have found that organising a group themselves has sometimes worked. You don't have to be the GM to organise a gaming group...
