Thinking about it, I have come to realise we play Eldritch Horror a lot. The two guys I live with and I play probably 2-3 times a week, and sometimes twice in a day. We got it 3 months ago, and now have (I think) all the expansions. We sometimes have friends over to play too.

Is this, in your opinion, a lot? I am curious.

I have owned Eldritch Horror about eighteen months, and have played it six times.

It was purchased when I was on a huge gaming boom, playing 2-3 different games 5 night a week. Now, I play maybe 4 games a week (at best), and with those I need to factor in other people's game collections too.

Shame. I miss the good ol' days of having no money and therefore free evenings!

I don't have a regular group for board gaming, so I tend to just play this solo. As such I only play it once a week or so, which means by my standards you play a lot.

I doubt that means much, as I wish I played boardgames far more frequently, so perhaps you've reached what I hope to build my gaming habit into?

That's much more than me. I've played 8 times since the game came out. I have almost all the expansions (not buying Beneath the Pyramids). It's a great and fun cooperative adventure game but ultimately the massive footprint of the game plus roughly a 3 hour play time (I usually play 4p) means it doesn't get played as much as I like it, but the people I play with do like it enough that when it does come out, they are interested and into it. I just find games that are 1-2 hours tend to hit the table much more frequently, especially if there is much less "stuff" and table space required.

It's a great game though and I look forward to a number of more plays in the future.

I'm very jealous.

I've had this game a few months after Forsaken Lore was released and I've played it solo almost 30 times. I've attempted to play it with my brother once, but the times didn't line up. That will happen eventually. He's already familiar with Lovecraft/C'thulhu.

No idea if I'll ever get anyone else to the table.

If anything, any other group of people will be playing Mansions of Madness 2E with me before this.

I have owned it since it released. I have 30 plays under my belt. My friend and I play as often as we can, usually each playing 2 investigators. I'd say we average 1-2 a month.

Sixty-one logged solitaire plays for me.
The majority of my games are played in the summer months and at a rate of about 2-3 times a week.

I can't stop playing this game. As soon as I finish one, I start setting up the next. Totally addicted.

Owned since release, played about half a dozen times in groups.
Played about 45 times solo.

Frequency depends on my free time, sometimes I'll do 5 plays in a week (usually when an expansion comes out as well), sometimes nothing for a few months.

In 2016 I've played twice. There are certain obstacles to my playing this game with groups. I definitely would love to play more.

Solitaire it took second seat to Leaving Earth this year, but I will get back to it if the opportunity (solitaire table space and time) arises.

Owned the game since 2015. I'm close to 30 games now. Only 6 of them I played with another person the rest is solo. I don't see myself getting bored of this game any time soon.

Got this game sometime early 2015, I think. I have 40+ games logged, most of them with my buddy. We tend to play about once a week, since fall 2015.

Probably 60 plus plays. Have to take a break occasionally, but I love the puzzle aspect of this game. Have all the expansions, and have printed off several fan made ones.

Just looked up Leaving Earth and ordered it. Looks so awesome.

Owned Eldritch for a year and a half, took us half a year to get our first 3 games in. The complexity and very very long playtime just scared us.
But after our 3th game (or 4th but it was somewhere around that ) everything clicked, we got the rules, playtime went down alot.
Since then we have played over 30 games, al 2 player (my gf and me), 1 character each. We even have a few wins (3 or 4 whistle ).
The both of us love this game, big fans.

I have 247 games logged in Eldritch Horror stats site. Probably at least 50, if not more, before I started logging.

We play faster than most people, but still I think this is our most played game ever. Still seeing new things after all this time. Still too lazy to write that strategy article that I have had in my head for quite a while.

I may have developed an Eldritch addiction.

I'm lucky if I get to play it once every few months now, very jealous of those getting to play it more - it's a tremendous game!

I play it with my friends a few times a year, but I play it solo all the time.
