We'd regularly game from noon til midnight, back in the day.
Not sure what our longest session was.

My longest gaming session was about 16 hours in a single stretch, minus a few minutes here and there for bathroom breaks.

It was a 6,000 point game of Warhammer 40,000... Tyranids vs. Imperial Guard. There had to be at least seven or eight hundred miniatures on the table at the start of game.

I was 17.

Longest was 72 hours back in the dark ages when I was in my early 20's. Game was TMNT.
We usually go 14 hours once/year with current group when we get together in person in Vegas (normally we are all online)

84 hours started at six on a Thursday and ended some time around midnight on Monday. IIRC we went paintballing the morning of Tuesday. June 1992 making me 18 and Rifts 2 years old... we were playing Rifts in my still running Rifts campaign.

15 hours of battletech.
We called it a draw after that a we still had 2/3rds of our forces on the map because of the amount of maneuvering and usage of cover we had performed.
20 years old.

Not straight through thoug. I thing longest straight was at the same time and it would have been 20 hours... before we started getting stupid from sleep deprivation.

Comment: "I will not be silenced. I will not submit. I will find the truth and shout it to the world. "
My old hometown group use to routinely game for up to 12 hours at a time and could go for up to 20 plus hours over a weekend or during a school break.

The longest single sitting game I believe we played was in July of 1993 when we did the fight against the Four Horsemen.

The final battle, hunting and then killing the last 3 of 4, was about 16 hours but some of the players played three or four games before that (doing the gathering of heroes, infiltrating the Phoenix Empire, and killing off followers and supporters of the Four) which added another 20 hours of gaming in about five days.

I've been running in a session of r/outside since 1974. Unfortunately the gm assigned us premade characters and I was assigned 'filthy prole'... Its been pretty grimdark for most of the session.

Comment: This space for rent. Inquire within!
I think about 16 hours straight thru to end a Rifts game, ended about 6 in the morning with half the players asleep. To this day I can't remember what we actually fought and what we dreamed, but we won...I think

Comment: Mondos non cogitarus, Consilium!
(not counting bathroom breaks, smoke/food breaks, cell calls, ect.)
Typical time; up to 3 hours, depending on who's house you're gaming at & what weeknight you do.
Extended or 'Booked' time; + 2 hours. By 'Booked' time I mean scheduled time either at home or by arrangement of your FLGS/FLCS. One I used to go to would put up the various booked times on a dry-erase board for all to see. The gaming area was a remodeled storage room.
Convention Game time can be up to 6 hours, depending on availability of the game room or area.
Cons like my own homegrown, ICON, used to be on the SUNY campus of Stony Brook, and during the convention game-rooms would be assigned to those who booked game time for the convention (panels, speaking engagements, videos & anime were booked to the larger classrooms that had a/v set-ups). Most simple or easy-to-play tabletop games (board games, miniatures, dice, ect) were set up in a larger 'common room' with extra tables so several games could go on at once. Such would happen for up to 12 hours, until the con would shut down for the night.

10 hours; Rifts; can't recall my age... early 20s.

Usual session was 4-5 hrs every week; at one point though, 7-8 hr sessions weren't uncommon on holiday weekends if folks were available.

No one in my current group seems to last beyond 5hrs though, in the bi-weekly game.

The longest game session was on a deployment where most the people where not on mission the next day and the GM, and 1 player had staff duty. Other than breaks for patrols and bathroom breaks we played for 27 hours straight.
