5News 6 regiment

It’s been a busy week for the regiment; here’s what you might’ve missed!

Don’t forget that Gamesurvey.org is still open all the way to 1 July.  We’re over 2000 responses so far, and hope that you’ll be a participant, too.
Remember that as an academic survey, it’s not a particularly short one, and it’s focused on more than just the gameplay – we’re also interested in your community engagement, entrepreneurial spirit (or lack thereof!), and motivations for playing games, within the gamer audience.

The official site verbiage:

GS org

This study is being conducted as an online survey. The web address for the study is http://www.gamesurvey.org

The survey takes approximately 20 minutes to complete, and there’s a bunch of demographic data at the front because the university requires us to collect it. Please note that 20 minutes is a realistic time frame for this, because like most academic surveys, there are a lot of questions, for statistical validity.

Gamesurvey.org is extending the response window to 1 July 2024

Any and all hobby gamers are welcome to participate and submit their responses.

No survey is perfect, but we’re building on what’s come before and trying to push the field a bit further forward.

Also, you can see Brant talk about the survey with Liz on Beyond Solitaire
