I was a bit surprised the other day to hear from one of my DCC players that, besides my DCC game, he also plays about 4 other sessions a week. He's much younger than I am of course, but really the only time in my life I gamed quite that much was when I was in high school (and only before I started having any real success with girls).
I'm pretty sure if I tried doing that now I'd die. I'm sure I'd go bankrupt because I wouldn't have any time to get any work done. As it is, most weekends I end up being a huge wreck; by the end of it I'm looking forward to the regular week and going back to my ordinary timetable.
But when I think about it, I'm gaming twice a week on average (well, 1.75 times a week, really, because I do two campaigns one weekend, and 1 or 2 the other). For a guy my age, that's probably a ridiculous amount (especially since the shortest session I run is about 6 hours). Not having kids obviously helps.
Since I moved to South America, I've actually started gaming more than I did in the period between starting University and moving here, where I mostly gamed once a week (and briefly, not at all).
So fundamentally, I started out roleplaying a ton, then roleplayed a lot less, and now am roleplaying quite a bit more but not as much as at the start.
So what about the rest of my readership? How often do you actually game? Would you want to be gaming more often if you could?
Discuss amongst yourselves.
