Depends on your playing style, how many games you play and how long your playing.

If you can only buy a case, then you need to learn trigger control and to conserve paint when needed.

I've never gone through more than a case playing rec. Tournaments are a different story but odds are you aren't playing competitively if you don't have money to begin with.

As everyone else said the obvious answer to your question is "Shoot less".

Rec, half a case. If you are playing seriously with a team, etc. maybe around 2 cases.

another big variable is how quickly the field you're playing at turns the games around. Do they take 20 minutes between games to start another? Also, are you playing in the woods or speedball?

You can definitely play a lot of games in the woods, probably most all day on less than one case if you don't get to trigger happy. And limit yourself to maybe a hopper and a pod per game.

One case was never enough to get me through a full day of play. I quit playing woodsball years ago & stuck with speedball. I went through more paint & had a lot more fun. The point being it depends very much or your style of play among other things.

I only bring 1 case of paint with me to play. I'll bring a hopper and 3 pods to each set of games (2-3 games) of speedball. Usually only end up using a hopper and 1 or 2 pods. I don't lay paint for no reason like some players do.
