50. That said, don't let the average age of those answering this question prompt you to start complaining about the "greying" or "graying" of the hobby. Most of the people with whom I wargame are in their 20s and 30s -- they just have more exciting things to do in their spare time than we do.

Aren't we all are a bunch of "old farts!"

Legion 411 Aug 2018 6:53 a.m. PST

You got that right skipper ! old fart

I'll be 62 in Dec.

And with all us old farts here … we are old enough to know better ! evil grin

TGerritsen11 Aug 2018 6:55 a.m. PST

I should have answered- too old to be young and too young to be old. It's not the years, in any event- it's the mileage.

bobspruster11 Aug 2018 7:43 a.m. PST

60+, chronologically. Mental/emotional….10 maybe.

Jeepers. I might have won the youngest award so far at 31.

Cacique Caribe11 Aug 2018 8:30 a.m. PST

53, but today I'm feeling more like 93


Winston Smith11 Aug 2018 9:02 a.m. PST

Unless life is a palindrome, I'll never see 60 again.

Winston Smith11 Aug 2018 9:04 a.m. PST

Well. Aren't we the Society of Ancients.
Pretty soon we'll be discussing our meds.
And those darn kids.

Personal logo TheWhiteDog Supporting Member of TMP11 Aug 2018 9:14 a.m. PST

Damn…I feel awkward now. 32 here.

robert piepenbrink Supporting Member of TMP11 Aug 2018 9:26 a.m. PST

Cooldude, be quiet while your elders are telling long, pointless anecdotes.

We sound like a Prussian 1806 council of war.

ToysnSoldiers11 Aug 2018 9:26 a.m. PST

None of your business

Over 100+, according to some of the "new math" calculations by a professor, on FB.

And I remember "Kukla Fran And Ollie!"

So there, you damned kids! Now get off my…. my… whatever it is I want you off of!

Holy Fill in the Blank! 87 responses in less than 24 hours. Thanks.

Happy Birthday Kevin! Already have my tables for Enfilade next year.

No, no graying of the hobby crap. It's more about product technology and want to see, what people, are really playing what.

Personal logo Ed the Two Hour Wargames guy Sponsoring Member of TMP11 Aug 2018 2:41 p.m. PST

As requested.
20 or less?
21 to 30?
31 to 40?
41 to 50?
51 to 60?
60 to 69?

Doug MSC Supporting Member of TMP11 Aug 2018 3:35 p.m. PST

I am 51-60, like many others here.

Could also just say I am old enough to know better, but young enough to not want to.

I mostly game with teenagers that I mentor and my children (25-16) so I see plenty of young people.

Kevin C Supporting Member of TMP11 Aug 2018 8:56 p.m. PST


I think the question was what is your age, not what is your son's age.

KSmyth11 Aug 2018 9:01 p.m. PST

Thanks Ed. I'll look forward to seeing you. And a happy birthday to you too.

Redblack11 Aug 2018 10:44 p.m. PST

Hey don't call me an old fart -my digestive track is fine !!

In many, ways while my body is not as flexible as it once was my mind emotions and love for life is better now than when I was twenty years younger I have painted more figures in the last five years then I did in the previous 20. For example I am working on a 10mm WSS project as of today I have 960 foot and 140 horse painted with aother bunch primed and ready to go. By the time I finish I should have about 1600 done.

TonicNH12 Aug 2018 3:30 a.m. PST
