This is going to be a long one to explain and it's more about the players than the game but any input would be appreciated.
I am the newest player in my D&D group. I came into a group of great players that really made the game enjoyable. I had never played before that and now I love it. We meet every week, and it is the highlight of my week. About three months ago one of the players needed to leave for personal reasons, something we were all fine with. He (Randy) has been showing up occasionally to hangout and watch, again cool with that too. Randy is really good friends with one of the others the one who hosts our games at his house.
The host texted everyone in the group chat and asked if we would like to have a board/card game night in place of D&D two weeks from now. I texted in the chat that I would prefer to continue with the campaign, but would be willing to do to something different if everyone else agreed. Two of the others Jeff included mentioned that they would also prefer to continue.
Randy suddenly chimes in and say to correct him if he is wrong then proceeds to claim that we all agreed to have a game night instead of D&D once in a while. Jeff goes on to tell him that we had previously talked about another night, at least that is what three of us remember. No one in the entire conversation said a definite no to a game night, Jeff was simply trying to state that it wasn't remembered the same way.
Both of these men being stubborn, go back and forth in the group chat for a while until finally Jeff says that we can discuss it on face to face at D&D.
D&D was still scheduled that week.
Four hours later the host puts in the group chat that he is not having D&D at his house THIS week, he is hosting a game night if anyone wants to come.
My issue with this is that he contributed nothing to the conversation other than offering what to do then making the decision when he heard what the others wanted to do. He is not the DM either, the DM was not part of the discussion.
I don't know what to do at this point. I feel like the host is using the fact that he is the "host" as a way of getting what he wants. This is not the first time he has manipulated things to get what he wants.
Should I offer to host D&D at my house and let the host have his game night?
I would hate to make people choose sides though.
