From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
In January I posted about a Goobertown video showing Brent completing 100 hours of hobby painting, and decided to do something similar. Rather than look only at painting I decided to track all my hobby activities and see how long it takes me to get to 100 hours.
The answer is a bit over a month, which is faster than I thought. If you had asked me when I started how my hobby time averaged per day I would have guessed about an hour. Meaning it would take 3 months to complete my hundred hours. It’s closer to 3 times that level though. Here’s how things turned out for me:
The large slice for videogames was me rediscovering my love of Warhammer Total War and playing first a Dwarf and then a Dark Elf campaign. Writing blog articles counts as hobby time too, and I see I spend almost as much time writing about painting miniatures as I do actually painting them! I was able to get out and play games a few times, which is great, and lastly I always suspected I spend way too long sorting and resorting my Magic cards, so I decided to track that time too. Almost 10 hours seems like a lot of time to spend sleeving and unsleeving cards, but there it is.
My next move is to do what Brent does in the original video – set the timer back to zero, and start again.
