Another week, and another poll. This week’s question is inspired (in part) by a poll over at Creative Twilight which is looking to find out what people’s favorite part of the hobby is. Not to steal his thunder, I combined that with another comment from TheInnerGeek where he’d mentioned that real life had forced him to cut back on his hobby time.
Cutting back will mean something different to each of us, since we all have different circumstances which dictate how much time/money we have to spend on the hobby. In this case, TheInnerGeek had suggested that an hour per day was all he could muster now, and at first glance, that seemed like alot.
In retrospect, 7 hours per week isn’t far-fetched for me. I tend to get in a game most Fridays and spend 3-4 hours there, and then I have misc projects that flash on and off, plus the time spent doing the blog. I dare say I spend upwards of 10 hours in my average week on the hobby. What struck me as odd was the way he phrased it: an hour per day. While I can certainly average that much, it’s been a long time since I could dedicate a block of time each day to my hobby.
So, that’s where we came up with this week’s poll: Approximately how much time do you spend per week on gaming (including painting, modelling, playing, and reading blogs/forums)? In general, we’re just looking to find out how much time our average reader spends per week on 40k. As always, we’ll disect the responses in two weeks.
You can vote on the poll to the right, or below. Also, if you’re interested in balancing 40k and real life, author Tony had a pretty crafty post on the subject last week that you might want to check out.
