I'm 37.

Does my 3 year old son count as a player?  He loves the opening movie, and always wants me to click on the planes and ship info screens (for the pictures).

He cheers when a bomb hits one of Bilbow's ships during the replay (unfortunately, that doesn't happen often enough!).

He can even reconize a P-51.

Atta boy!

Thats what we need, more childern to educate. I did with my 24 year old, not too sure if he still plays much but then he doesn't need to as he has job controling a remote maintance sub. Real life simulation.

I even tried my daughter but she said in a most lady like way 'I'm not interested dad'.

LOL, my sons (almost 4 and 2.5 resp.) always want to watch the ships and planes as well.

An often-heard comment is 'Papa, why does your ship smoke?' - I'm playing the Japanese in May 43 and Allied bombers and subs start to take their toll on my shipping...

They cannot recognize aircraft types yet, but the favorite shirt of my older one is adorned with a print of a Spitfire - that's promising (I remember my favorite shirt at that age showed a P-51 - the 'Old Crow').

I'm 34 btw.

Just turned 52, been playing wargames since 1973. Still young at heart, enjoy running thru the woods with loaded guns during shooting compititions and scuba diving the seven seas.

I'm 47.

Been playing since the early '70's. France 1940 (AH) was my first game.

I have two daughters, the youngest is five. One day she asked me what I was doing in the game, and I told her I was trying to sink a bad guy's ship with a torpedo.

Ever since, when she sees me playing, she asks if I've fired a burrito at an enemy ship. (I guess you have to be a Dad to appreciate that one.)

Regards,
Feltan

Midway and Victory In The Pacific were my two favorite AH Pacific Theater war games when I was a kid. Still got them both.

I'm 22, started playing WitP when I was 19. Before then I was playing UV for a year or two. My dad got me into this and he's been much more active on these forums than I have.

I've still got all my Avalon Hill board games somewhere around the house; the first one I talked my dad into buying was Panzer Leader and we went from there.  Panzer Blitz, 3rd Reich, SL and ASL, War at Sea and Victory in the Pacific and Jutland were my favorites back in the 70's.

I'm a pack rat also and still have almost every game I ever bought. My collection includes mostly AH and SPI games with a large selection of Victory, GMT and other odd publishers. Including magazine and zip lock baggy games my collection numbers somewhere between two and three hundred.

My first game was Kriegspiel, folowed by Blitzkrieg, but the game I really cut my wargaming teeth on was Panzerblitz. I went on to become a Thrid Reich fanatic playing it repeatedly with my local buddies for at least 15 years going through each new addition.

We eventually became playtesters for Advanced Third Reich and got our names published in the design credits. If any of you have an old dusty copyof ATR on the shelf take a look at the design credits and you'll find the name of Merrill Wright.

So, since we're all saying what we started with ...

I have to say that it was 1961 or 1962.  A friend of mine had Tactics, the AH game that came out before Tactics II.  The counters were round, not square, but as I remember, the board was pretty much the same as Tactics II.  He eventually gave me the game (it cost him $2 new, I think it was), since he never played it.  Of course I threw it away when Tactics II came out.  I'd like to have that one now!  I'll bet some collector would pay more than $2 for it.

I went from there to Gettysburg, Tactics II, D-Day and just every other AH game ever made until about 1972.   After 1972 I was a little more selective in the AH titles I bought.  (Most of them were crap, by that time.)  That's when I got my lifetime subscription to S&T.  After that I got just about everything they, and all their successors, ever did until about five years ago.  I still do the mag, but have migrated to computers exclusively for my gaming pleasure.  I have game titles from many, many publishers, so I have a HUGE wargame collection scattered around the house.  Maybe the next hurricane will take it from me so I can claim the insurance.

i think i discovered AH around 1963 or so with their D-Day game, although i went back and got Tactics II later... i'd been playing other "war games" like chess, Stratego, Risk, but the hex-map games were a real eye-opener...

34 here.

My introduction to naval simulations was the old DOS version of Harpoon produced by Three-Sixty. That's been a while...and now I work on the current version of the classic game. Never thought that would come to pass.
