I guess this is one place where I'm "typical"--36 and started playing at 12.

33 and I will turn 34 in June.  Started playing in 1980.  Stopped playing in '91.  Continued collecting throughout the '90's.  Went into overdrive in 2000 when I first logged into Ebay.  Hopefully will start playing again real soon.

I am 48, I guess that makes me one of the older ones here. I really didn't start playing until the late 70's early 80's. At my age your memory start to get a little hazy. (could be a side efffect of the amount of beer my DM and I consumed every weekend for many years)

I am 35 and started playing at age 11-can't remember my first characters name!!! It's no wonder 31-35 age group has so many people we were ALL playing back in the early 80's-remember?

I'm 42.  Frackersnackering young whippersnappers. Started playing the spring of 1979, and started DMing that summer, my group played all the "letter" modules (G series, D series, A series, S series, B series, etc) as they came out....We gamed T1 when it came out and then I ran a few "inbetween" adventures until T2 came out... oh well 8O.  Turned out the entire party was retired at high levels by the time T1-4 finally rolled around!!!!

Gary was born on 27 July 1938, which makes him 67 in July.  Rob Kuntz just turned 49 this year, IIRC.

this is depressing, 55 this year.  My involvement with the game (at different levels of activity) has now been 25 years.

almost 47, and I resent that dust crack(Hmmm, Descent into the Dust Crack. There's a name for a module). You young whippersnappers should have been around in the old days. Why things back then were so tough, we played with actual dungeons and dragons. You have it way too easy now.


Started playing D&D at Great Lakes in '76-'77. Went to Dungeon in Lake Geneva. Got to adventure in original Blackmoor. Saved some rare pieces from then, not in best shape: Palace of Vampire Queen, Beastmaker Mountain. Started collecting recently.

LOL:  just because you're older doesn't necessarily mean you've got gaming years on all of us Tom :D  Some of us whippersnappers started in 1977 ;-P

Sorry if the smileys didn't convey my joking intent back at you in my reply, but that's what I meant to be doing :D

Sorry, Alan. I am not up on smileys and such, so that went right over my head. I'll eventually get the hang of it. My apologies. Ya zinged me good. -Tom
