The Great Wargaming Survey – 2019 Edition

It’s on again. The Wargames Soldier & Strategy Great Wargaming Survey – 2019 Edition.

This is a survey that has become an annual event now and one where the number of respondents have been increasing each year. It focuses exclusively on tabletop miniature wargaming.

The survey only takes about five to ten minutes to complete and the results will, when published, I am sure provide grist for the podcast and discussion group mills for many months into the future.

Last years survey was discussed between Jasper of WSS and the Greg and Miles from the Little Wars Club (which is a great YouTube channel by the way, well recommended).

There is also a section on the Wargames Soldier & Strategy blog discussing past surveys and results.

Wargame Soldier and Strategy will publish the result of the survey when it completes and as a sweetener for participation, they are offering both prizes and every participant may claim a voucher which can be redeemed in the Karwansaray Publishers webshop for a €6.50 discount or be used to ‘purchase’ one of the sprues made available by Rubicon Models, Wargames Atlantic, and Sarissa Precision! Instructions on claiming that are on the final page of the survey.

The survey is running from now until 31 August 2019. I do recommend you spend the 10 minutes it takes to complete the survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PJ825GK and add your voice to that of the wargame community at large.

The Great Wargaming Survey 2018

It is that time of the year again, time for the Great Wargaming Survey for 2018. It has a focus on tabletop miniature wargaming.

As with previous surveys the purpose is to answer questions that come up regularly in discussions. As before, the results will be published online only for everyone to read, not just readers of Wargame, Soldiers and Strategy.

There are some sponsors to the survey so there are prizes to be won. In any case, all who answer the survey will get a 15% discount voucher for use at Karwansaray Publishing.

Filling out the entire survey should take around 5-10 minutes, and the survey remains open until 5 September 2018.

The Great Wargaming Survey 2016

I am a bit late getting to this this year however it is time for the Great Wargaming Survey 2016. The survey only takes about 5 to 10 minutes to complete and can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/JXXW7TD. As Guy Bowers & Jasper Oorthuys of Wargames, Soldiers & Strategy magazine note:

Apart from rolling dice, there seem to be few things wargamers like to do better than discuss the state of their hobby. The purpose of this survey is to answer some of the questions that regularly come up in such debates. Unlike previous editions, results will be published online only for everyone to read.

As before, and thanks to our gracious sponsors, we have quite a few prizes to be won. Leave your email address at the end of the survey to be entered into the raffle. Entering the contest does not automatically mean we’ll subscribe you to any communication. That is a separate question which does not influence the raffle in any way.

As a thank-you for taking part, everyone who completes the survey will get a €5 gift code for the Wargames, Soldiers & Strategy / Karwansaray Publishers webshop. Though it does not apply to shipping costs, this code can be used for any (combination of) item(s) in the shop.

Finally, filling out the entire survey shouldn’t take more than 5-10 minutes, and we’re taking responses until August 19th, 2016.

Go on, fill it out. You know you want to!

 

Wargames, Soldiers and Strategy Great Wargaming Survey 2015

It’s that time of the year again – time for the Wargames, Soldiers and Strategy Great Wargaming Survey 2015. The survey takes about 10 minutes and is a great way for at least part of the hobby to get a feel for the direction the hobby is moving in as well as should be moving in out into the future.

Just to make it more tempting, the nice folks at Karwansaray Publishers  are offering a 10% discount coupon to everyone who completes the survey. I should point out too that Wargames, Soldiers and Strategy is my favourite general wargames magazine currently with interesting articles as well as some interesting columnists.

If you are curious and missed the results of the Great Wargaming Survey 2014, then have a look here for a summary of that survey.

Go on, complete it, you know you want to!

An Academic Wargames Survey

A mate of mine in sunny, down-town Kuala Lumpur (you know, in Malaysia where the Islamic Authorities get all upset over people petting pooches) is finishing his university study and he is running a survey as part of his final assignment.

If you can spare 10 minutes or so of your time to hep Ian out by filling in his survey, The Relationship of Consumer Personality Trait and Brand Loyalty: An Empirical Study of Tabletop Miniature War-Gaming, then please go to this link and complete it.

Ian is one of those old school wargaming types – will try anything once, sometimes twice, so help out a mate (and not just because he has such a cool name 😉 )
