Cut my wargaming teeth on Arab/Israeli wars and Squad Leader. Built Models from 4th grade on. Played D&D before the box set came out because a friend came home from summer camp raving about "this new game we learned" in 1978. Owned and lost a set of the original Chainmail rules.

Played AH's Gettysburg to a finish once. It took me and three friends a whole week of gaming to do it. We put the game away and moved back to Squad Leader.

Now I play Warmachine and D&D most often. I just love how the games have evolved over the last 35 years!

BTW…as a High School teacher, I am not surprised to find the age distribution for the denizens of this forum is as it is! :-D My students are far more likely to go to a more "edgy" site than this one…We have too many rules of decorum here!

POLL DESCRIPTION

It's been a few more years since we last asked this question (2005), and since the "age of gamers" discussion has stirred up some interest, let's revisit this question:


Not trying to be nosy here! However, a lot of the "pundits" in the hobby claim that miniatures wargaming is a dying hobby, that most gamers are old and grey and there's not enough young blood.

Which leads me to ask: how old are you?
