    I game at least once per week, but that's only rpg. I play board games at least 3-4 times per week and computer games quite often as well. Hopefully, I can recruit layers for a Shackled City game I'd like to run every other week!

    Unhappy

    Well, I don't get to play much, just the occasional at the dallas meet-ups. However, that may be because of my choise of type. As I prefer some sort of four-color supers, instead of the more common fantacy. Just not that many folk available in this area, , for supers, that is. Even my play-by-post section seems to attract very little attention. It won't stop me from trying, though!!!

    I'm lucky if I get in 1 or 2 games per year, and for the last 3 years, one of those has been at a semi-local (about an hour away in Roanoke) convention.

    I was a twice a week gamer up until the middle of 2005 when I moved back east.....now getting a group going again, finding gamers here in the area has been a challenge.

    I run my home game every other Friday, so twice a month for me. I also run a one-shot at the Seattle Meetup almost every month, but I hardly count it. It's usually with strangers, rarely do we complete the adventure because of the time constraint, and it's usually something I dragged out of Dungeon magazine the night before. But it's a whole lotta fun

    Good gaming!

    Let's see, how often do I play, well that all depends on the situation. Normally I can only get my players once a week. But sometimes they do show up more than once and I throw something together. But now I'm afraid that I won't even get that one break a week to escape since the weather has taken a turn for the worst here. Snow, snow, and more snow on top of snow.

    My mother's side of the family lives in Michigan. Although the last time I have been there was when I was but a boy, I hardly have memories of there being anything but snow when I was there. You mean to say that you get other kinds of weather there?

    Gaming Schedule

    Right now I am in three games:

    Friday nights (Weekly) -- Shadizar
    An experiment in improvisational and round robin roleplaying set in a Hyborian Age where Conan never lived. Eight players. Seven sessions old. I run this game.

    Sunday 2:00 pm till 10:00 pm (Bi-weekly) -- Bow Street Runners
    A Victoriana murder mystery campaign where free-wheeling investigators solve crimes, brush elbows with the supernational upon occassion and act terribly British. Seven players. Eight sessions old. I play in this game.

    Sunday 2:00 pm till 8:00 pm (Bi-weekly) -- Midnight: Last Age
    A desperate struggle against the desperation and darkness in an age of shadow and epic adventure. Seven players. Twenty three sessions old. I run this game.

    Nice! That must be challenging planning for three games you run every two weeks. My creative meter would definitely get tapped.

    I actually run only two of them. In the Bow Street Runners campaign I am a player.

    And thankfully I have lots of good source material to steal from... It also helps that the Midnight game I wrote (mostly) some years ago. The Shadizar game is almost entirely improv (by design), so there really is no planning per se.

    bigtony, I'm thinking you're looking at 25 more years before you can do that, unless you've figured out a way to retire at 60. If you have, share it, cuz then I'd be able to retire in 15 years instead of 20!

    My weekly gaming group (D&D every Sunday eve for, ohhh, 16 years i think?) recently added a Weds Boardgame night. Great fun. Nice diversion from the RPG night. However, a new DM has emerged and started an Eberron campaign. Now everyone is engrossed in both his AND my campaigns, we now sling dice BOTH Weds & Sun, alternating campaigns! haha. Glad we bought all those boardgames over the last year... ahh well.

    I manage to get in at least 3 sessions a week with the spontaneous pick-up session occasionally. Saturdays and Sundays are all-day marathon runs, sometimes reaching 12+ hours. I hate online games so I try to cram as much PnP time as I can into my week.

    I just need to figure out how to make role-playing my job and I can game 40 hours a week. I would go for as much over-time as I could though.

    As an engineer I can sympathize with you. I found differential equations and quantum physics easier to pick up than the new rules for grappling and attacks of opportunity.
