    I know - I get the point. Hopefully the results won't be used to sell ads on the site.

    I think it'd be better if the groupings were 18-35 and 36-65. That way I could be in the young group.

    You know you're finally a grown up when you meet someone who can speak intelligibly who's also young enough to be your kid.

    Never thought I'd see the day. :lol:

    Blasphemy! :gripe: May the gods throw frogs at your igloos. A job you hate is a wasted life. Civ is a life well spent.

    Generally speaking, when people that age are already decent-to-good at games like THIS, their gaming potential when they get older is just scary. Not everyone enjoys it enough to pursue it for long enough, but those that do...wow.

    I'm sixteen. I'd guess the average age here to be around 25ish. That's more based on OT though because obviously age matters more there but it's adjusted to what I see here.

    I'm 38 and still cute as a button. :D

    If you want some ammo for the Missus you should find the thread where everyone introduced themselves with their age and occupations. There is some serious RL talent around these forums.

    The previous poll was called something like "In what decade were you born ?" and went back far enough to cover me: I think I was the oldest there. But I shan't be 80 for another five years . . .:old::old::old:

    I'm 25 and been playing since Civ II. I was converted from RTS games such as C&C Red Alert. My girlfriend can't stand the game though haha!

    How about enjoying a great job during the day (high school teacher) AND enjoying Civ during the evenings?

    :king:

    Age 30, btw, and playing Civ since CivI!

    31. Though, I'm not sure how much actual influence it may have had--started playing Civ II quite independently in '97-- besides just distributing the name, brother had original card game prior to 1991, at least. Anyway, lots of history-oriented school, which had supported the obsession.

    I'm old enough to vaugly remember Civ 1, but I never played it, my friend was raving and ranting out it, though. In high school I got addicted to Civ 2, and then in first year of uni I got addicted to Civ 3. I should be done a master's by now, and am addicted to Civ4, yet I'm on my 7th yr of undergrad - which I blame on Civ. (Okay, I've been working almost full time the whole time, so not all Civ's fault).
    @TMIT: you are about to finish grad school and yet are still very active on these fora? Good for you man, I wish I knew how you do it.

    32. And pretty new to this game - played vanilla for about a year before I got BtS just a two or three months ago. Never played the old versions.

    I'd rather not say, but i am 12 which is realy young (not looking to be much older if all this 2012 stuff turns out to be true). I'm sure im not the only 12 year old civ player out there.

    Same here. My brother played Civ 3 and I got hooked on it just as he started fading away.
