67 in a month and a half -- I might be the oldest geezer here. Please say that I am not. Grew up playing Avalon Hill board games. Been with Ageod since Birth of America was released.

Well by the month of June I will be all but 70 years old. Weaned on Afrika Korps and Tactics II of Avalon Hill as a youngster....bought and painted my Napoleonic troops of the Bavarian Army using first Charge! Or How To Play War Games and then Column, Line, and Square rules. :dada:

64 this year. Started wargaming in 1968 with Avalon Hill's Jutland and 1914 and still have both games complete. First computer game was Computer Harpoon in 1989 on a state of the art DOS 386DX-25.

64

I found a reference to Bish Iwaszko who I played modern wargames with - he was something of a guru in London in 1968:

29...

I have a feeling I'm always into older people's hobbies. No matter whether I'm playing wargames, collecting militaria, building models or reading, I've never stopped feeling like I felt when I was a kid and was playing Aces over Europe and Total Annihilation with my father and his friends :mdr:

I'm actually surprised you are old enough to remember Total Annihilation! The world needs people like you.
P.S. 55 here soon to be 56.

I'll be 41 next week. Gettin' too old, even for video games. 41 is too young to be old, and too old to be young.

At 41 you are DEFINITIVELY NOT TOO OLD for video games, what is this nonsense!! What will you do when you retire?? No, video games are the future for all old people!

Don't forget to do some sport each week though. Your body is your capital, don't waste it.

I'm blue collar, so I'll probably never retire and will end up dying on the job. However, I'll do my best to keel over while playing my last campaign of Civil War II, whiskey bottle next to my keyboard.

Sadly, no. Gave up tobacc'y two years ago (saw too many smokers go down from lung and heart problems). I'll just have to spare those parts and put a bullseye on my liver instead. It doesn't make sense, but hey, we're only human.
