How do I speed up DND combat? Tabletop tips from an anxious GM

4 min read

I love combat in Dungeons & Dragons, but it can be a real slog if it consumes your entire session. End of arc boss battles are one thing, but it shouldn’t take three hours to fight a henchman, even if you have a large number of players. I had this exact situation happen to me recently, so I came up with a few tricks to speed things up — and they worked!  As someone who struggles with anxiety and depression — a combo that is less than ideal for a journalist or a game master juggling seven different players in a six-hour Dungeons & Dragons game — I know it’s tough to get your players in gear and encourage them to speed things up, but if I can do it, so can you.

In this week’s column of Tabletop tips from an anxious GM (all of which can be found on our DND tips hub), I’ll be answering “How do I speed up combat in DND?” That is actually a question I asked myself a few weeks ago, and now I have an answer.
