I too began with Tactics II. Since that was 1958 that means I have been practicing waiting for AE for 50 years now

I bought my first wargames when I was like 10-12 yo. War in the west for C64 tape was my favorite. The pacific war I bought as soon as I read the review back in 1992(?). I was like 14yo back then. It was one of the most amazing games I had ever seen and it fitted into a single disk - I still own it.

I'll bet you lied. Either you are not a woman or you are not 53. Would find it hard to believe that both are true...


On another board on of the oldest players is a woman of 60-70 age. Her favs include rpgs and games like diablo. And she has played strategy games too and says this about them:

quote:

Some people take anti-depressants or rely on their faith to overcome anxiety. For me, nothing works as well as a procedural, non-emotionally involving type of game. In fact for years strategy gaming helped keep me from dwelling on and over-reacting to some difficult personal situations by totally immersing me in a brain activity I rarely use--non-emotional,non-hormonal and neutral thought. I don't know if this is a gender thing or not.

My wife thinks I am 5, but almost 8 times that... I think I was one of the best overseas customers of a certain CT based mail-order company in the 80's. Spent 80 bucks (plus all fees) to get War In Russia for Apple II. Ah the tricks ctrl-c did in the game :)

She still has issues with my gaming, but has given up nagging, I reckon.

Yeah, but you would no longer be a college student!!! This game can eat up all your free time, and some that isn't. Anybody else multitask while on conference calls at work???

My first wargame was also Tactics II, in 1963. Also around that time I had Risk and Diplomacy. We played Diplomacy and Risk the most though. My first computer war game was the Ancient Art of War (and the follow on, War at Sea)then Kampfgruppe, followed by Mech Brigade.

Danged Johnny-come-lately...

I fell in love with Flattop when it was still owned/sold by Battleline Games. I actually have two copies - one is the original Battleline version and the other is the newer Avalon Hill version. It's still my favorite board wargame...

Just turned 45.  Santa brought me "Luftwaffe" when I was 12 and started a career of wargaming.  My second job pays to support my wargaming habit....er, career.

Possibly one of the most astounding facts of all time. The new super collider could find completely unimagined particles, and inside i'll be thinking "whatever, let's see it play a WitP PBEM through to conclusion"
