To get the really lazy ones you have to count the ones who didn't vote …

As I said in the pre-poll discussion, I consider myself a lazy gamer because I let such trivial things such as work, get in the way of important things such as painting, terrain making and even gaming itself. So flippin lazy it's disgusting.

I freely admit I will let someone else do all the work setting up a game – but when I set up a game I put a lot of effort into it including painting up minis specifically for the game when needed

My curse is that when I start any gaming project, it quickly becomes: "I could turn this into a big convention game!"

What Frederick said. I love it when someone else does the (often literal) heavy lifting. But I've put on more than my share of games at the club.

I've taught local after-school programs, run a game room, currently organize and host our local game group, so no. But as far as becoming a professional painter or terrain maker, or expert at a multitude of rule systems, I recognize the limitations on my time and skill, and only push myself so far. At some point, I stop and say "Good enough."

Yes. Yes I do.

Only Lazy Gamers choose which side they will be on based on their favorite seat.

That's a REALLY good qualifier.

That's not lazy, just good sense. "Overworking" wargaming miniatures has long been a serious problem for me.

I am lazy about everything.
