What is your ideal RPG group size?
For me, as a GM, my sweet spot is 5 players. Not so large that players that might not be in the spotlight at the moment have too long a downtime, and not so small that the party has trouble filling needed roles.
With 5 players, if one or two are missing from a session, the game can still go on (so long as the remaining party exerts some extra care). On the other hand, with 5 players, I can add a guest player or two for a session without things getting too unwieldily.
I've run steady campaigns with 3 and 4 players, but the loss of a player for a session usually led us to a board or card game.
So, what's your ideal RPG group size?
