At games club, which meets every 2 weeks, I'll usually play 2-3 games in 4 hours.

At home, where we play games 4-5 nights/week, we usually play 3-5 games, spanning 3 hours or so.

It depends on which group I play with. With my Monday night group, we play Descent for about 4 hours. With my cousins, we play about 8-12 hours and the average game is a 1.5 hour to 3 hour game.

Our game night (game day, Saturday afternoons, actually) usually lasts 4 - 5 hours, but that wasn't an option. soblue

Yeah, this question is skewed towards the idea of a Game Night. I go to gaming group meetings nearly every Saturday and play all day. I can't even imagine how I'd be so fortunate as to play on weekday evenings.

we usually play numerous short games because everyone is drinking profusely....therefore, it's a long night (hour wise) but a short night gaming!!!

Our group does Game days every now and then as well - on average 12 hours, and I usually get in 5-7 games. Others more or less.

You can put that in. Feel free.

We usually play on game nights, often twice a week, so my poll was geared/skewed with that prejudice going in. Sorry.

My game nights are on weekend afternoons and evenings. Depending on where we play, Richard's house, my house or Pet Shop Comics, we get in 3-5 games. Usually going out for one meal, either lunch or dinner, is involved and there is a certain amount of conversation between games or afterward. I'd say I invest a minimum of 5-6 hours in all the related activities on game days.

Game nights to me are where we invite (or are invited by) other people to play games. If we play shorter games, it's usually 3-5 games a night. For a long game, it's usually just the 1, maybe followed by a filler to end the evening.
As for how many hours a typical game night lasts, probably about 4-5.

I don't have a "game night". I play games a lot. 20+ hours a week is probably close.
