Yep. I've been gaming since before you were born. The early computers didn't even have hard drives! The early board games were very simple and rudimentary... 3 to 1 odds and roll the dice. Also we had to have soak-off attacks!

You dont have to be 70 to remember PC's without hard drives! In my first year of uni, we were using punch cards and a mainframe. In the second year we got 3 PCs with 64kb of memory and no hard drives. We had one PC with 256kb of memory and a hard disk, that we used to configure to run half the RAM as a virtual drive to quadripple to the processing speed! I vaguely recall playing a game that required soak-off attacks....

    28. I've been playing turn based strategy games since 1994 or so (first ones on the C64 (some old SSG titles, Risk variants, 4X games), then PC).

    I'm 44, and playing turn-based computer war games for 20 years now. Have also some board games at home, but none to play with. Thank the Lord there are computers and internet!

    Geez, I knew I was old but seeing it in print is something else.

    I'm 63 and was raised on AH boardgames going as far back as Bismarck and Chancellorsville. In fact I play tested Battle of the Bulge for AH back in the '60s.
