So how old are you guys and gals?

I love to put a best-before date on the avatars I see every day.

So please answer the following poll, and then create a new entry with a game that was published on the year of your birth -- either your favorite game from that year, or the game published on that year you think you'd have the most fun playing.

(To search games according to year of publication, click "Adv. Search" and put the same year in the two search fields.)

Alternatively, if you find an entry from your year of birth and you agree with the selected game, just thumb it!

Poll
How old are you?
Under 10
Between 11 and 20 (inclusively at both ends :) )
Between 21 and 30
Between 31 and 40
Between 41 and 50
Between 51 and 60
Between 61 and 70
Between 71 and 80
Over 80

1964. Crappy year for games. yuk

Actually found a game our family had and we played as kids. You had to pump the tail and little plastic pellets fell out of the chicken's butt into it's nest below. Oh, the fun we had in the good ole days.

I really like this game from 1975. While I do often wish I had more time to spend playing games, I probably more often wish I had some more time to spend sailing.

That makes me tick the second box of the poll.....at least for a couple of months :-D

I chose Trax, which is one of the few games that I have actually have played from 1980 and a very good abstract to boot.

I don't know if the age has anything to do with my love of abstract strategy games, but trax seems a good fit (no jokes on fits being on a good trax :-)

I have never previously heard of this game. There are some decent looking war game expansions from 1984 (Ambush! Move Out, Banzai, and Desert War). As a full game, The Third World War looks pretty intense.

Finding Strat-O-Matic at the age of 12 led me to a life spent with sports simulation games. I graduated to Pursue the Pennant and eventually moved to the computer games (currently FM11 for soccer and OOTP for baseball) to not have to calculate stats by hand, but I do miss rolling the dice and break out the old school games every now and then.
Thanks SOM, Happy 50th Anniversary!

Yes, I did go through all 7 pages of the year 1984 and the game I chose was this, the second one from the first page. I like abstract games most of the times. I don't mind the occasional Talisman or some silly dice-rolling games from the seventies, but these kind are my fav.

And weirdly enough, I hadn't played any of the games. Go figure. I think I'll get this one, though. Or make it to see how it plays.

I didn't realize this was "released" back in my birth year. Played this a lot back in high school, along with Eucher and Spoons. I always thought that card games just "evolve" with no definitive birth date, but I'm happy to add a degree of PG-13 titling to the list

I am stretching the intent here a bit by listing the birth year of my son Aaron. Plus I know another entry covers this year, but what the heck!

My friends and I played the hell out of this game. I had a lot of time on my hands, with Aaron being born and therefore not travelling much. Much easier to just invite some friends over and play Stellar Conquest. Although made obsolete by MOO and MOO2, my copy still has a place of honor in the game closet. I am looking forward though to the new 4X GMT release.
