    Probably this was done before, but I am curious what is the average age and distribution of civ players.
    Location, gender would be informative too :)
    How long you have been playing?

    My info:

    33 years young :)
    Male
    Chicago, USA
    Civ Noob. Never played it, and expecting it in the mail this week :)

    Thanks a lot in advance.

    STAT UPDATE
    Total Count = 302 :)
    Average Age = 28.7 years.
    86% males.
    40% USA.
    Distributiuon By Country:


    HSTOGRAM IS ATTACHED AND WILL BE UPDATED FREQUENTLY
    Looks like it is taking the Rayleigh distribution.

    Interesting is that we have more in the 70 group more than the 60. Also none in the 65 :( Maybe busy getting ready for retirement THEN they can spend all the time to play CIV :)

    39 -- yikes! I remember posting to these types of questions when I was still in my 20's! Where did the time go???

    edit: Male, playing since the old 286 days, first game was Medieval Kings or something like that, followed by CIV1. Anyone remember having to tweak config files to squeeze out XMS memory?

    Technically played civ I but was too young and stupid to understand it.
    So for practical purposes, civ III began my love affair.

    The biggest hurdle in gaming, for me, was the transition to windows 95. I never did get Master of Magic going again and getting MOO I going was a nightmare.
