    I play on the weekends. Work, kids, wife, bicycle riding and other hobbies compete with CIV for time.

    An hour or so a day (sometimes none), maybe more on the weekend. Also while the family watches shows like "Say Yes To The Dress" (I'm the only guy in my house).

    I tend to play Civilization in waves. I'll sit down and play a 16 hour play session all at once... and then not touch it for a week.

    Same as troublmaker. Well, not 16 hours, but I don't tend to pick up saved games so I will finish a game in one sitting which results in a similar pattern of playing a ton one day then not playing at all for others.

    maybe two hours daily, sometimes three if I have enough time, but I play it every day since it came out.

    I work usually between 50 and 60 hours per week, and I prefer marathon games on huge maps. That said, I usually have one complete game per week, lasting over most of my weekend. If I have more time off or take off sick, I'll get a bit of extra civ time in.

    I'll admit I probably played Civ V too much instead of studying this past year. Though I still got good grades, it ate up a ton of time (as Civ IV did for the past 8 years). I usually played ~4 hours on weekdays and ~6-7 hours on weekends (per day).

    Now that it's summer on the days I play I usually get in up to 7 hours. Since I'll be entering college this fall I'll probably have a lot less time, unless there's a gaming club that's into Civilization. :3

    Less than I actually spend! Over the last few months I've probably clocked up 20+ hours a week - mad, given that I have full-time job and plenty of committments.

    Once or twice after work for about 3 hours (while the wife watches her TV shows) and once over the weekend for a morning or evening if I'm not tied up. We have two weddings to attend next week, the 7th and 8th this year!

    My wife and 1 year old usually go to bed by 9pm. Then I play video games til about midnight. So 3 hours a day with maybe a couple more on weekends. But I rarely play civ. I play a lot of other games, anything from dead space to nba2k13 to master of orion.

    I have a 7 week old, so my game time is basically zero. I get an hour here and there when mommy and baby go to grandma's, but I'm usually expected to come along, so to keep peace I just go.

    Sometimes I have a "headache" though and need to "get some sleep"

    Wow! Wives, kids... I haven't been able to play for a few days and I'm crying like a baby. I need a good ol' 5 hour+ session soon or I fear I might die.

    As much time as I can find. The school holidays are still going, so I kill my boredom with world domination.

    Being a high school student, I find myself having plenty of time :D
    Just after school's out I play two hours, in the weekends I play like maybe 4-5 hours.
    But, as I now have holidays, I have time to play ALL DAY EVERY DAY BABY

    I play way too much, at least in my opinion. I'd say I play around three hours each night, and sometimes 8 hours on Saturdays and Sundays [each]. I'm addicted :(

    I really need to clean my apartment...

    I'm retired, so I can play Civ any damned time I want. Normally, though, I'd rather read a book.

    About 5 hours a day if you average it all out.
