    I had to double my memory from 4 megs to 8 megs in order to run the first Civilization without crashing.

    One thing to remember in this thread is that this is a survey of CFC forum-goers - which may not be entirely reflective of the broader Civ-playing community.
    However, I'd be guessing it's still a good guide. Thanks Gemini for the thread and all the updating : )

    There's been computers in my house as long as I can remember. The first game I remember playing was Frogger. I can't even remember on what system, it may have been the Tandy Color Computer, or the TSR80, I'm not sure since I was so young and my dad had bought computers from the Altair on up. I started playing Civ1 in high school.

    I'm going to go ahead and give the demographics of other people I know who play Civ since they don't post here.

    My dad, 52
    My boyfriend, 33
    My best friend's son, 10 who I started on CivIII two years ago.

    oh yes, and my Grandfather 82 who's no longer here, but used to play Civ1

    not sure if someone else asked yet, but can you please explain in the first post what a rayleigh distribution is and why it can be applied to game player ages?

    Played civ1, civ2, colonization, ctp1, civ3 (quickly kicked off), ctp2, civ4.
    I didn't mentionned simcity 1 and 2000 but maybe could be in the same "gaming attitude".

    Playing since... ooch... 1989 ? 1990 ? 1991 ? Something by there.

    Gemini - is it reasonable to start the Rayleigh curve at age zero ? I would have thought that the probability of getting a player even at age 5 was astoundingly low, let alone that of having a poster at that age. At age 10, yes: my sons would have had great fun playing Civ1 at that age, if it had existed then. I'd also like to know the basis on which you are constructing the curve.
