Mine is at night too. I can see the games better and everyone else in the family is occupied with their own things to do.

Unless it's my days off, my gaming is always done in the evening. My days off are Sunday and Monday, so Saturday night equates to my "Friday night" celebration--when I kick back, relax, get into a game, and can stay up as late as I want. happydance wave

Whenever the mood hits me.
I've even woken up in the middle of the night after dreaming about a puzzle that I couldn't solve - got up, powered up, solved the puzzle and went back to a peaceful and restful sleep.
Games are better than sleeping pills lol

Not admitting defeat... is the beginning of the solution.
But sometimes asking for help is not a bad idea!

Generally it's in the deep night (2am - 4am) cause I do funky shifts, but sometimes it's before work as well. But mostly it's my days off (I work 3 days on 3 days off, 6 day work week).

I like to play fairly early in the morning (5-7am - ish) when I can. Yes, I am one of those annoying morning people. But I find that is when my mind is freshest and I can sit there and play while I drink coffee.

I get up early (around 4AM) and I find that is my best gaming time. It's still dark out and all is quiet to enjoy my games with a nice hot cup of coffee!

The only real chance I get to play is for an hour or so in the evening. Hubby has this annoying habit of wanting to sit in the same room as I play games and watch TV. There are THREE other TVs in the house, but he's got to sit where I am. frown Then tells me to turn down the sound on the game. Anyhow...

I can barely find my way to the kitchen in the morning to make my coffee. The thought of playing ANY kind of game very early in the morning is out of the question for me! lol


The answer is....chocolate! Who cares what the question is.....

Anytime I have more than 3 hours available. I need the longer time to 'get into' the game. For now, that means I'm limited to playing weekends and holidays. I do prefer to play in a darkened room, not much of a problem where I live, since we have less and less daylight hours over the next few months, but I have a blackout blind on the window just in case.

We play our adventure games together, mostly in the evening but sometimes on a Sat. or Sun., during the afternoon for awhile. Any other games that I play are any time I have the time.

After coffee and emails in the AM, in between taking care of puppy or one of the 2 cats, or having to stop to eat, sleep, crochet, shop, clubs (genealogy and computer), church and church events, and whatever else we have to take care of. I play whenever I can and the mood hits me and so far am lucky I can remember what I was doing in the game and where I stopped - but then I only play one game at a time and have a very nice stack of new games waiting for me - I tend to stay out of trouble cause I'm always busy with my games, or doing something constructive - hate to do housework tho, wish it would do itself as I sleep lol
Love, Betty Lou

I play in the afternoon usually, and sometimes early evening if I am really immersed in the game. I use headphones too, just wish they drowned out hubby's music insane Not about to splurge on expensive headphones, rather buy another game.
Use my DS if I wake up during the night or early morning as I can play in bed.
As I am retired I can play when I want, but find my eyes get tired after a few hours lol

During the week it's evenings only, as I work full-time. At weekends it's whenever I get the time. Then, if I'm playing something particularly wonderful, I'll be up until the early hours with matchsticks propping my eyelids open. laugh

I play at weekends & during days off if & when I can - I like to have a good few hours to get really stuck in! I'm usually too tired in the evenings & tend to play more casual games that don't need so much thinking about. smile

We play mostly at night and on cloudy weekends. I do get some free time on weekdays now and then, but my computer gets so much sun on it until late afternoon that I prefer to keep to practical stuff.
