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.

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:
