    Default Playing Football Manager on your work lunch?

    Any of you crazy enough to play Football Manager while on your lunch at work?

    I did it for the first time last week, got myself a few games in.

    I only have half an hour lunch as well! RUBBISH

    Lunch? Balls to that. I play throughout. This allows me to reach 2050 during each installment of FM. Couldn't do it otherwise cos I hardly play at home!!

    Take my laptop to work and if I have nothing on I play it then.

    Back in the mists of time when I actually had a job, I used to squeeze the occasional bit of FM action in. Didn't like it if I lost, though. Set me up badly for the afternoon's toil.

    I would be lying if i said i hadn't done this or WORSE.

    I've got reams and reams of old notes on players stats. I used to be the Howard Wilkinson of the FM world ;-)

    A group of 6 of us decide to play a LAN game over the uni wireless during a very dull lecture.

    I'm a teacher. Playing FM during free periods and lunch break >>>>>>>> marking books and creating lesson plans.

    I'm probably not the best example of a hard-working teacher....

    Sounds like you have low determination and work rate, but I like your technique!

    If your kids knew you did that they would think you were the coolest teacher ever. I know I would...

    I remember a few years ago, i used to play FM on my old laptop during work hours(sometimes). I would skip through all the crap, pick the 'magic' diablo tactic and start the game and go back at half time etc, about every 5 mins i would check.........I`m a glass cutter

    I get the odd 30 mins of free time every now and then, only problem I have is I share an office and when your team scores that last minute winner it's hard not to punch the air, I've gotten some strange looks!

    Although I would like to think so, not quite. They're more the COD/Fifa/Pro types. I once mentioned FM in class and was met with silence. I'm glad you would though!

    I have to keep office hours during the week, and students rarely come in, so I get several hours of FMing while at work. I'm not complaining!
