EDIT: If an row is not applicable to you (e.g., no living grandparents/siblings/strangers) then leave that row blank. A "Not applicable" option would screw up the percentages of the other columns.

I find that 'someone else's children' applies to about everyone, including me.

Very intuitive. I like your deductive reasoning. Would you, the child of another, like to play games with me, the child of another?

No, almost never.

This is evidence that strangers may have the best candy, but they have the worst taste in board games. Except at conventions, then it's roughly a coin flip.

So far I would conclude:

1) Almost everyone plays sometimes with their significant other.

2) There are a solid number of people with weekly game groups.

3) You're as likely to play a game with a random hobo as you are with your grandparents.

I tend to find a couple games things Friday-Sunday, too busy at other times in the week unfortunately. That usually means I get to play with 1 or both my significant others at that time which is ever so lovely =-).

I probably get a game in every couple months or so with my Mum, and maybe once or twice a year with my Sister, but my Dad/Brother are misery-guts' that treat games like deadly diseases.

Occasionally a game'll happen with a co-worker at a lunch break, though I need most of my Lunch breaks as a cooldown/rest period from working so social stuff is difficult.

That always confuses me about the "25 mph when children are present" signs. I'm present.

Surely these results are going to be skewered in some categories as family members have passed or never existed for some people. There should have been a not applicable option.

Well, I matched, almost exactly the majority responses on this poll.
Given what they are, that's almost depressing.

This poll would be better with a "not applicable" column.

Sure, but just think of how many ways this poll could have been worse!

I think the results here are being interpreted incorrectly. As I read it more than 2/3 of people are gaming somehow more than once a week. That seems like a good amount of gaming. This is showing that most people don't game with every type of group and that the groups of gamers are spread across the options.

No two player option except with significant other? Regular and irregular meetings both state groups whilst I play a face to face two player game most weeks.

This poll makes me sad, as it brings to light the fact we'd ALL like to play games more than we currently do.

It's not always about who won, Pete!

C'mon! Half of us play at least monthly with a set group of friends. Or wait, is that glass half-empty?

I think this poll needs a "Not Applicable" option.

I'm single and childless. Meaning, I have no significant other which means questions 2-4, and 6 are "Not Applicable". I have no kids which rules out number 9 and 11. Can't have grandchildren without first having children.
