Maybe I am just way to addictive to MC, How many games is the average for playing in at any time. I am playing in about 60+ right now. How many games does everyone else have going on.

I'm in 23 right now. Maybe my record is 40 or something like that, and RT too, but before I joined games more at random and now I'm more selective.

I'm not a commander so I can't play crusades and fixed out of tourneys, and nowadays I normally avoid games with don't have any interesting players, all flat rate singles standard and mercenary, escalite singles standard, and all 1vs.1, except finals in tourneys, but I'm thinking about quitting those tourneys too.

Engineer I like to see the evolution of the games so I usually look at them also out of my turn, so if I were in 60 I wouldn't have time to eat or sleep :) As long as you can do that kind of things too, that's right.

When I first got my membership I went crazy joining games and I think I had around 100 going at once for a week or two. Now I'm between 10 and 20 at a time. In all my life I never met anyone who would play risk with me! My daughter was 10 at the time and we would talk about the mechanics and strategy and I would let her play a few turns - which I think drove some people crazy. Now she is 14 and last night she asked if we could play the board game together. Perhaps I finally have someone who will play in real life with me!

Yeah, same here. For a while I joined literally every game available and had probably about 100 simultaneous games for a long while.
Those days are gone though. Right now I have 13 games. Anything less than 10 and I get bored, anything more than 25, and I get overwhelmed.

Normally about 5 or 6 games at a time is enough to keep me going.

29 right now - which is actually pretty low for me I reckon but I am not actively chasing any medals right now so am being selective and there is no need for head2heads.

Half are tournament games and 2 of them I've been dead for months though

I will jump into almost any game if i see someone i don't think I've killed before though so it's still a problem ha.

I'm in seven because my schedules a bit unpredictable! Stopped joining any new games a few months ago.

I'm usually in 40+ though, don't know how I did it! - I guess bored and in high school :p

I used to be in 10-20 games at once, but I don't have the time for it these days. I got 3 games going right now and I usually play a turn for each game every day.

I never really know as I don't count them...ever. if a game looks interesting for whatever reason strikes me at the time I join. Being retired makes it easier to get on and give it as much time as I want to.

At this very moment, I have 15 active games, and 1 person from joining a game to being at 16. And I could make an argument that that is too many for me, at least during the spring-late fall months. I am trying to get it down to and keep it around 10. But then I go looking at games, and/or someone sends me an invitation for one that looks like it will be very good and interesting to me, and I sometimes cannot resist. So I've been around 12-15. But I WILL get it down to 10 or less. I think. Maybe. :p

At one point, right after I got a membership, I had somewhere around 50 games going. THAT was just entirely a ridiculous amount of games for me. Even during the winter now, I'm sure I'll be keeping it to around 20 or so, if that many.

I'm not a grunt, but I have difficulty playing more than four games at a time.

Hello, majorcommand.
I'm from strategygamenetwork. just rejoined here and saw your post. There are many players from sgn like myself who play about 60 games on average. We do this by having the turn limit increased up to 120 hours per turn. most players don't take that long but it's a great buffer.
would love to see that here on OUR new site at MC.

In my opinion, 120 is too long. 48-72 hours? Eh, maybe. :)

Overall, I agree with F15, but to each his own. I wouldn't object to see all of those added as possible game settings. I wouldn't join those games, but others might like them.

Yes, if we were to do that, it would probably be an "option" during the game creation stage. 3 minute, 5 minute, 24 hour, 72 hour, or something like that.

I could see adding it as an option, but I also wouldn't join a game where players could take 72 hours to play (or more than 24 hours for that matter).

Some games play pretty slowly already, probably because some players can only play once a day (which is fine). I prefer to have my games move along fairly quickly. I find that it makes the games more interesting when there is less time between my turns.

That's just my point of view.

I see my old post about the 20 games i played and i realize the huge amount of time i lost here lol. Now i play 4 at most, and much better. Now i mostly play while smoking, so my 2 addictions suppose the same time. I have lost the tourney doping, but well who cares, i prefer to play with players i like. I recommend it before you have to ask for professional help!

About the turn length, i would suggest 6 or 12 hours, there are a lot of players who systematically wait to the end, i've never understood why.

Longer turns could be an option too, but i don't know if there are many people who can't spend 5 minutes every 24 hours checking their phone.

I have no opinion on this, I guess the more options the merrier, however, there have been games on majcom that lasted more than one year. I have never played on strategygamenetwork, but does this mean that you guys can have games that last 2-3-4 years?

???

This would mean that one could skip turn even if the last thing before sleep and the first thing after sleep one does is checking majcom. Though I agree, sleep is for weak players, and IRL life is overrated. :dancing:
