Thanks for re-posting, Dee. I missed the original. I was really surprised that we had so much, how should I say,... experience? I'd like to see a histogram of the age distribution at Boomers.

I am 47 bravo .

Oh BTW ... Married to same woman for 54 years (our only marriage ... SO FAR laugh ), 3 married children & 11 grandkids (none married yet!!)
I too would like to see a histogram.
OR JUST ....
1 to 10 = XXX1 (YY1%)
11 to 20 = XXX2 (YY2%)
21 to 30 = ..................

91 to 100 = .................
Over 100 = hahaha

I would love to see a Histogram on the gender/age
stats of the great boomers. After reading a few
pages of posts and adding fuzzy logic to compute:
It would seem Boomers are about 78% Female
and the average age is about 56 years young.
If the counts were actual, would not the game
makers and such, be interested in the totals?
Oh ya, I am a 44 year old Drone Bee.

Thank You Witchen for making this available again.

A histogram would be great.

I am 65 years young and Lela, my young chick wife, who needs to be counted into this tally, is 5 years younger than me. I'm afraid to quote her age. smile Did I get around it OK?

We have had an adventure gaming website since 1997, and it has been our experience that most of our readers and those people that we are helping every day are over 50, and many are in their 60's and above, and a very high percentage of them are women.

Hi Bill and Lela.....Just wanted to pop in here and clarify that MacDee recaptured this topic from the Gameboomers archives. It wasn't the Witchen; she who has no age. wink

Sorry MacDee and Witchen blush - see what happens to the mind when you turn 65. I asked MacDee to bring this thread back a whole day ago. rolleyes <img border="0" alt="pacify" title="" src="graemlins/pacify.gif" />

50! Just as well we didn't have all these great games way back as I would never have passed any exams. Just as well the kids are students in London too. Now I work from home and can fit in games when I want.

Happy New Year all. When I turned 60 I thought, "Now I am officially OLD". In February I will be 70 so now I am officially "really OOOLD".
About half way down the multitude of postings I looked at the posting dates which were running Aug. 2002 and thought that I had gone to sleep at the keyboard and had been online for four months.Senior moment.

My age is 52. I run a game based site for many years now. I know that the age of many gamers is over 40 years. I know this because of the many e-mails I receive. Some of the gamers are even over 60 years "old". I think it's a big misunderstanding that gamers are just a bunch of teenage kids with nothing else than "the finger on the trigger or on the joystick".

Don't forget the many of these "oldies" (including me) learned to play and love games in the late 70ties with the good old Sierra games such as King's Quest and all the other Quests...
