How many "wargamers" do we have on this site?

I was just curious.

I started playing wargames back in 1993, with my first being Star Wars Miniatures Battles. I was actually looking at comics in a local shop in Birmingham and saw these guys playing this game on a table with all of these really cool painted troops and terrain and immediately got hooked on it.

Went on to play Warhammer and Warhammer 40k as well as building my own 15mm Prussian army (Yorck's Corps) for Napoleonics.

I haven't played in years but from age 15 until about 20 I was a pretty avid gamer and still pop into a hobby shop from time to time to look around.

Are there any other tabletop wargamers roaming the OS boards?

With the age of high tech Videogames and Computer graphics, I'm sure they are a dying breed.

I never got into the figurines and wargames like that, but I did love playing Risk.

I also enjoyed a good game of Sorry from time to time. Sorry is the wargame to end all wargames!

I used to play Axis and Allies back in high school, does that count?

Back in the late 90's I got into wargames although I was never that good at them lol. I loved SSI's Panzer General series and the Operational Art of War Series which is considered by armchair Generals to be the best tactical war game ever created.

I used to play that too.

But my game was the ultimate hardcore Grognard game. Advanced Squad Leader (ASL). It's easier passing the BAR exam than learning how to play ASL.

I still play from time to time, it's very, very, deep.

Closest I got to playing a board game of the same ilk as Warhammer is either Risk or DOOM: The Boardgame (a board game based off the 2004 PC game Doom 3), both of which are fun games themselves.

Re: How many "wargamers" do we have on this site?

Way back (late 70's) I used to play the Avalon Hill war games, like, Blitzkrieg, Panzerblitz, Anzio, Russian Campaign, Gettysburg, 1776, etc. And the SSI games too. I still have all those games in my attic.

The Operational Art of War games on the PC are just like those old war games.

My 2 favorites, Stratego and Risk. Stratego was an absolute blast to play, Risk was as well.
