hours
I try to get in a coupel of games a week so thats about 3 hours weekly. Plus I go to a games group once a month for 5 hours and have friends over monthly for a 12 hour session.

That averages out at about 7 hours a week...

Generally about 6 to 12. Occasionally more, but only rarely.

Now THINKING about playing board games... That seems to be almost constant. I actually had a dream about Mutant Chronicles last night. I don't remember exactly what it was about, I just recall that those Ezoghouls are supremely scary. gulp

No where near enough

Some weeks I get 0-2 hours and in good weeks I manage 3-5 hours.

never enough time
Since my crew are all career and family people, we can't always play every week. On average weeks, 3-5 hours, on weeks with bonus sessions, maybe 7-10 but only rarely does this happen.cry

8+ per week, ~40 per month
4 hours every Monday evening (Yahoo!), another 4 hours every Wednesday evening (SVB), 5 hours the first Saturday of every month (Numbats), randomly between 0 & 10 hours every third Saturday of the month (BAP), and then odd random times from there every few months (conventions, friends, etc).

Figuring out my numbers since the first of the year (7 weeks):
10.6 hours per week is the mean (average)
6 hours per week is the mode (most common amnt of hours (3x))
12 hours per week is the median (3 above, 3 below)

So, I tend to do 6 hours or around 14 hours, and rarely anything between

4 hours
For face-to-face gaming, I'd guestimate 4 hours a week.

Not nearly enough.

Anywhere from 12 to 20 on average. I have two weekly groups that last 6-7 hours each, and then non-regular gaming on Saturdays that last anywhere from 0 to 14 hours.

If you want to add in online gaming it's probably another 3 hours a week.

How many hours?
It comes out to about 1.7 hours per week, on average.

Sadly, I spend more time here reading about games than I do playing them.
