My age? I had to count forward from 1951 to realize I was 51. I haven't been able to remember my age since I turned 23. Some of my friends think I'm 54. Others think I'm 48. There's one who swears I'm not a day past 40. Who am I to tell them otherwise? I'm not sure myseif most of the time. That's good, right?

Uhhh, just being nosy and all and I know how very busy you've both been lately, but I've noticed that Singer and Jen in Chicago haven't had a chance to post their messages yet. We're looking for them you two. Sequoia

Sequoia, Our very own Singer (aka Dennis the Menace) will always be going on 6 <img border="0" alt="pacify" title="" src="graemlins/pacify.gif" /> . He will never qualify for the over 45 club.

Love you Jack! <img border="0" alt="[winky]" title="" src="graemlins/winky.gif" />

All right, Sequoia, you talked me into it. It's not like I can pretend I haven't been hanging around the boards, can I? lol lol

I'm 7.... (at least, that's what my last psych evaluation says rolleyes )

But rumour has it I'm really 34.

Jack

EDIT: HEY!!! Trying to beat someone else to the the punch (in the nose) around here is IMPOSSIBLE!!!

P.S. Cheryl, Dennis the Menace is a poseur. I'm the real deal! wave wave

Singer,if you're really as young as 7 I noticed that you are posting in Central Time and it is WAAAYYY past your bedtime! Time to toddle off.
Sequoia
P.S. Even though you (and I'm sure tons of others) don't truly qualify as 'Boomers' we love you all and your presence makes this board so very rich. wave

Well, I guess I fall somewhat below the average age on here. 26 was a good age...so was 34...40...not so good. I'm 42, act like a 16 year old (or a 6 year old) at times, and generally feel my age when looking after my 7 month old daughter, or after teaching 4 night classes in a row.

Cheers!

From what I've seen on other game forums this seems to be a somewhat rare situation and I wondered if our ages have a lot to do with the way we treat each other. Ken
Ken, as far as admonishing posters, it does happen, but it's fairly uncommon. We do have those few who simply will not conform to our guidelines, and have to be told not to come back, but again, that is rare too. As you say, I think the maturity level of our members has a great deal to do with this--it seems to me that even the younger members are more mature than many others of their age group.

I know that there are Boomers older than I am, but I think that Soren takes the prize as GRANDFATHER BOOMER! (Grandfather being the respectful way to refer to an older man in the Navajo culture.)

Jenny, let's not forget Uncle Norm who is 90 and frequents the board even though I don't know if he plays adventure games. Although i am sure Peter would have introduced him to Xiama if nothing else laugh

Almost 49. My 40's have definitely been my best decade so far--I'm thinking my 50's will be even better!

I'll be 71 next month....same as Tom Sr. I see. I have 5 boomer children but they are not sharp enough (apparently) to be gameboomers. (mine is the 20th, Tom, when is yours?)

This is a great thread! Like Syd, I calculated the average age to be just over 51. Out of the 124 replies so far, the age groups break down as:
20's = 3
30's = 11
40's = 43
50's = 42
60's = 18
70's = 6
80's = 1

I am 49 as of this May, but like many others, my internal age feels like 35 or 38. I have to stay young-thinking as I have an eight year old son!

This forum is absolutely the best on-line group I've ever found and I now know one reason thanks to this question. Thanks to everyone who contributes to my enjoyment of adventure gaming through this site, particularly to the monitors who make this happen! smile
