StartPlaying is excited to announce our newest partnership with Paizo: Pathfinder Play Weekends! 

Paizo, publisher of award-winning games Pathfinder and Starfinder, is partnering with StartPlaying to make it easy for new and longtime players to find Pathfinder groups with seasoned Game Masters hosting everything from campaigns to one-shots. Whether you want to learn to play or delve into the Abomination Vaults, you’re sure to find something exciting during Pathfinder Play Weekend. 

‚ÄúPaizo is excited about this new partnership. We‚Äôve designed Pathfinder to be easy to learn, streamlined to play, and offer deep character customization starting at level one, with meaningful choices at every level. The StartPlaying professional Game Masters are ready to get you started and keep you playing every month at Pathfinder Play Weekends,‚ÄĚ says Aaron Shanks, director of marketing at Paizo.

Pathfinder Play Weekend will be a recurring event taking place on the last weekend of every month, Thursday to Sunday. The first event will run March 23rd through the 26th. You can find open games here. 

Pathfinder Second Edition has been leading a TTRPG boom since January of this year. Paizo sold through what was planned to be an eight-month supply of Core Rulebooks in two weeks. Meanwhile, interest in StartPlaying listings for Pathfinder has increased exponentially. Pathfinder Play Weekends will help meet this demand by matching eager new players and veteran fans with games for all skill levels. Pathfinder 2E offers a variety of gameplay styles and tones, from silly flower garden one-shots to deadly dungeon crawls to freeform kingdom building sims. 

"We're always excited to make it easy for people to find and play games," said Devon, StartPlaying co-founder. "We know the best way to make the hobby grow is to remove barriers to entry, and professional Game Masters are incredibly invested in providing an amazing experience to players and making them feel welcomed."

StartPlaying games is the premiere online platform for finding open TTRPG games with professional Game Masters. GM profiles show their skillsets and ratings from players, allowing users to easily find someone whose style matches their preferred experience. Users can also refer friends to the service to claim a $10 credit towards a future game‚Äďperfect for inviting buddies to a new Pathfinder campaign!
