I try to play at least once or twice a month but since I have a lot of units to make my army simply isn't ready for most battles so it's actually less than once per month :(

Hmmm, it depends really, I haven't tried playing any games at my LGS so that is one reason I don't play very often, but sometimes when I get together with my two wargaming buddies, we like to play a few rounds with each other, but on average, it's more like once a month. It's not a really big deal to me because I like to paint more than actually play.

With that said, I shall back away slowly and ominously and disappear in a puff of smoke, then smuggle some fruit across the border in order to stay competitive with the veggie cartel.

haven't gotten any games in lately work and financial issues keep me home or at work unfortunately but in a few months that might change.

I used to get a game in every Saturday in the year but sadly with having school, a job, and a serious relationship I'm lucky to get 2 or 3 games a month and that's with cramming a couple games in one day...

Generally about once a month due to the distance to the nearest FLGS and lack of transportation. Used to be once or twice a week when I had an FLGS less than 5 minutes from my house.

Before I left the service I'd visit the LGS once a week and get a couple of games in. Play in a tournament, the like. Got a of good experience that way.

None, i only collect and play myself since its a pain in the rear to keep up with the all the new rule books and up dates that are being released so often and cost a lot too.

I'd rather spend my money on more minis and supplies such as paint and stuff than buying a new rule book for say 70 dollars where there are like 7 rules that have been slightly altered since the last edition and the rest of the book is the same as before.

I play 5 games a month at one time, local gaming club.

Quote from chromedog
and 40k was like McDonalds - you could get it anywhere - it wouldn't necessarily satisfy, but it was probably better than nothing.

I'm lucky enough to have 3 good gaming clubs near me and an awesome FLGS where you can book a table

I regularly get to 1 or 2 club meetings per week. So on a good month I can manage to game maybe 12 times in total.

Support your local club, if you haven't got one, maybe give it a go!

If I got a game a month in, I'd consider myself lucky. I ususally get one game every 2-3 months in.

It's never an issue with getting a table, as I have an awesome FLGS with an abundance of tables and terrain. I have 3 regular opponents, and all of them are busy either with family or work. Same with me. So finding a time when one of them, and myself, are not busy for a day at the same time is difficult.

I try to make it to my FLGS monthly tournaments. When I do make it, I get 3 games in one day. Outside of that I might get a game in every other month.

Same here, ours has just started up a league

Originally I voted that I don't play but one BRB and three codexes later (BA, DA + Tau) have changed that to playing quite often!

I stopped going over Christmas, I'd just started a new job as well, so finding time was a nightmare.

Now I play on Thursday nights and Saturday afternoons, works really well because a few guys from Thursday go down on Saturday, and vice versa so the league has about 12 people regularly turning up (not a lot but it's more than enough variety plus everyone gets on)

So I'm probably playing 10 games a month now, from zero

This is what i am attempting to achieve where i live. in the manner you described. not having as much luck though. sometimes i think it'd be easier if i moved back to the city instead of where i live now. there is interest here but
it seems no one is keen to play 40k. even at the FLGS which advertises it host's a 40k night (which it doesn't), that doubled with the fact i no longer have a working car means that my gaming time is next to non existant. really wish i'd game more but alas it seems how hard i try it's not mean't to be. if that's the case then i guess i'll continue the hobby but just not from a gaming POV

Most Saturdays I get down to my local GW, which means either participation in one big scheduled game, or one or two smaller games. When I can, which is fairly rarely, I also go to games night there, which constitutes another couple of games a week.

I guess I'm somewhere in between "once" and "several" a week, really. It depends.

This made me sad. I only have two games under my belt, and with my crammed schedule I rarely have a chance to play. But if I could, I'd play at least 3 or 4 times a week
