We have been going to game nights 1-3 different nights a week. Every Wednesday, Thursdays (unless we have a Kickball game), we just started going on Saturdays too. Wednesday is the big night. Last nights crowd was around 70 people I think. This is besides the fact that my husband and I play games pretty much every night and I/we play some with our daughter every day as well.

How often do you go to or host a game night??

Never. Every now and then I show up for a game day,
but generally, I'd rather just play with myself.

I attend a regular game night every two weeks, which has spawned a not so regular gaming day for the really long stuff. Four weeks ago we started this offshoot with twilight imperium, it continued with Mage Knight and this weeken we plan on playing Junta, and if that goes fairly quickly, we may add a game of Dominant Species or Die Macher.

I play in a small group at the pub across the road every Monday night. I also play at a large club 4 times a month; full days on the first and third Saturday of the month and evenings on the second and fourth Fridays.

I go to a few around Portland throughout the week. Monday nights down here in Wilsonville and sometimes Sundays at Guardian Games, etc. 1-3 times a week as well. I hope you can make out monthly game night again sometime. Tomorrow is this month's. It's still a smaller group over some of those closer to downtown though.

And i play with another group every also ever other weekend.

One group plays primarily euro's (4 of us normally)
Other group plays Ameritrash and a few euros, and that group ranges from 3-6 players

My wife and I try and go once a week together and if one is out for an evening on business or some other thing then the other might go a second evening in the week. We also host whenever we can but this will generally be lighter games and party games, although we are weaning our friends onto the more hardcore stuff, and we have a bunch of friends into sci-fi so Cosmic Encounter comes out quite often too.

We normally play games at home all the time anyway.

My girlfriend and I normally have/host 2-3 game nights a week.
Normally, I would attend all three, and she would attend two.
We normally play on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday.

Perhaps, if it will save him from playing with himself.

Currently do two nights a week minimum.

Wednesday is for card games, typically Fantasy Flight LCGs.
Thursday is for Boardgames.
Some Fridays are for wargames by GMT.(Usually once a fortnight).

Some Sundays nights are for random games with mates.
Third Sunday of the month is boardgames at my FLGS.

Then as many night as I can get playing with my better half.

2 to 4 times a week.

One in my place with friends from work. Another in a Pub run by a game designer from Belfast.

I also attend the Dragonslayers every now and then on Tuesdays.

I might have some not programmed game night now and then.

I go to a weekly group on Sundays, and until recently, went to my FLGS on Thursdays. If my schedule allowed it, I could game 4 nights a week, thanks to a great selection of local stores.

I host 1-3 game nights a week. Got a pool of about 14 people who like to game, and people tell me each week when works best for them, and I try to coordinate it so no one night gets too big.

So far, anyway!

I used to game about 1-2 nights a week, but now I simply play when it is feasible. Peoples schedules started changing, and my fiancee and I have been very busy lately. This week might be a rare week to where I can play 2 nights again. I played last night, and I'm hoping to get some games in tonight or tomorrow. *Crosses fingers*

Hopefully we will get back to our normal 1-2 nights a week come the beginning of August.

Thanks for the offer and all, but really, I prefer it this way.

I host a weekly game night with a few friends, and occasionally make it out to the Fun Games Cafe game days (they host once a month, except July/August, and I tend to miss a few, so maybe 6-8 times per year).

I also play about once a week or so with my wife, occasionally with family or other irregular groups, and a bit of solitaire gaming...

I try to do a game night with a game group once per month, and I try to do a family game night once a month with the kids but I don't think that counts. So I guess once per month.
