Yeah, but tautology is it's own reward.

Unfortunately, all of these answers, which are axiomatic to the question, should have been simply eliminated by the editors, leaving us with the far more interesting and idiosyncratic choices originally suggested. Instead, this poll became a boring cypher of unoriginality. Though perhaps we should blame those who suggested these choices in the first place?

We never did get any clarification back on what was meant by "this hobby." I find myself wondering whether Bill has ever played a miniatures game, and if so what one.

I started with Command Decision and moderns. Lately, I've played a lot of Mighty Armies (fantasy). My gaming tastes are pretty much universal.
