The MD/DC/VA Archaea Group holds events all year round. Day events are held on Saturday every two weeks unless otherwise noted. Once every quarter, a weekend or two-day event (play on Saturday and Sunday) will be held. Finally, with strong interest and during good weather, the MD/DC/VA Archaea Group will hold a weekend campout.

On day events, game officials arrive at the site around 11:30 AM for new player orientation and to begin check-in. During check-in, players sign-in, process any game materials, spend experience points, and update their characters. Also during check-in, players' weapons, constumes, armors, and other equipment and accouterments are passed for safety and appropriateness for the game. The event begins at 12:30 PM and runs till completion (approximately 3-5 hours). A $1 donation per day is asked for one-day and two-day events.

For campout events, game officials arrive at the camping site around 4:00 PM on Friday afternoon to open the area, set up Elders' camp, and welcome players. If possible, check-in briefly done from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM. The event begins at 6:00 PM and runs till Sunday morning. Players are encouraged to stay for the whole weekend and to be in-character and in-game for the entire event. Clean-up is held on Sunday morning and the site is cleared by 11:00 AM. A $5 donation is asked for weekend events.
