Even though we all know billyboy and Jon_S are like 100 years old, It seems to me that there are more and more youngish users here in our fragmented little club.

How old are you coots?

Maybe stick your Birthday in here as well in case any well wishers want to take note.


March 2 here.

That's wonderful. Good for you! I've always wanted to have a haunted house. It's been my lifelong dream!

I am 34 and will turn 35 on May 30.

I do feel a little on the young side for a wargamer as compared to gaming in general. I just figured you are all the distinguished statesmen of gaming.

37 soon. wow I created my account on bgg 10 years ago (december 2001), and I guess at that point I was quite young for playing wargames. Maybe I still am, but I think not below average by any big margin.

This would make for a good poll. It has been done before. Could be interesting to dig up those polls to compare.

Fear cannot be banished, but it can be calm and without panic; it can be mitigated by reason and evaluation.

If you mean "55", I will reach that point this Friday (the 20th).

I'll be a young looking 46 in September, depending on how well the plastic surgery my girlfriend is buying me works out.

I'm afraid to respond on this thread, since I don't want to make all the pacemakers go to FAIL-mode.ninja

Plenty of picture of me on the Geek, so people can make their own assumptions.
Let's keep it at a juvenile 16, with some years of experiencearrrh

Cheers, Haring

As my username would imply I'm an old coot. 53--I'll be 54 next August.

Glad to see so many relative youngsters (30somethings) in this list.
