Humm, I wonder who is the oldest player?
 
Well, I'm 58, somebody else is 61.  So there are some old f..ts out here.

I am 53. My first wargame was Avalon Hills Tactics II.

And, you guys will all be pleased to know that I am a woman!

iirc, there was someone in his 70s (from an old thead...) but i don't know if he is still around... Some retired folk still around (i see their names from time to time) but i won't mention who they are... [;)]

I am one of the older crowd. My first real wargame (other than Risk) was SPI's Foxbat and Phantom. That thing is still around here in one of my storage containers.
For what we are about to receive, may we be truly thankful.

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...

24 here, Alikichi is probably the youngest, considering his join date.

I am win! [:D]
It is a rarity to find a teen playing WitP, but what would REALLY shock me would be a female player.

I know someone who has a quality almost as rare in a genre like this...

46 here, started playing board games as a teen. My brother was a member of a Wargaming club and he used me as his practice dummy. The first game I ever played was SPI's Arab Israeli wars, course my brother convinced me that playing the arabs meant I could never lose... I had boxes of unopened SPI games that id bought, sadly I discarded them over the years. I do have my Heavy Metal magazine collection thought!

Wasn't my first game as I started wargaming in 1973 but quickly became my favorite. My friend David and myself played it so much we went through three maps.

Anybody remember USN S&T 1981 I think, well that's my first wargame.

Ok, maybe I lied about the woman thing.

It is just that I fancy heels and makeup....[:D]

In 1969 I was eleven when my dad and I discovered AH games, purchasing Afrika Korps. I don't have all the games I ever purchased, and haven't played a board wargame in ages. The joy of playing it on the computer is that setup and takedown is so easy...

Pretty sure I had it was closer to 1960 as we still lived at 3057 Central, did not move to "eagletucky" till 1962....
(Dad had a small hobby shop and as a hobby distributor carried very early AH products, but only till the move.)

Somewhere around 1981 and being fed up of playing board games against myself, I thought computer can do that. A computer with a 1Kb memory was purchased. You can call me naive if you like, but lI did learn Basic and found out how a computer worked. Then came my Apple IIe, great machine with good wargames, some with tough AI.

is Terminus your dad??


Haha, no not Terminus. If he's 35, that would have made him 13 when I was born. Plus he's in Denmark and not California. [;)]

From what I have heard about the quite relaxed Danish attitude regarding sex and alcohol, this would not be entirely out of the question... Denmark may beat California in this regard! Perhaps Terminus can comment on the 'Speedbandits' or on 'Body Tequila' (and Peder Sass...) [:D].
