While that doesn't surprise me, what *does* surprise me is the number of us who are in the 19-24 age bracket. Either you guys started playing BOTF at a rather early age (especially for a turn-based strategy title), or you discovered the game somewhat late. I'm curious as to which is the case.
same as zerochance, i bought this game the day of release when 13 years old or 14 hmm lol! and played single player for a few months before discovering multiplayer and played it off and on ever since..!

I started playing BotF 6 or 7 years ago. I think. I don't quite remember for sure.

Although I voted ages ago, I never mentioned to tell everyone. I'm 33, so Martok, you are not alone with that age :P

Interesting. Going by the comments thus far, it sounds like those of you in the 19-24 age category really did start playing BOTF at a relatively early age then. I admit I'm somewhat (pleasantly) surprised by this, as TBS 4x games often seem to be perceived as an "old man's" genre.

Heh. Good to know. :)

23 in march, had the game since the summer it came out, actually bought it on a trip with my grandfather at a mall in Georgia (USA) and read the strategy guide and box the whole way home to Florida, just itching to play it the whole time :D

I'm 31 but don't feel a day over 20 and the looks prove it, so I've been told.

32 here, and I've been playing 10 years also- and I was lucky to get the game for $0.01 due to a bad tag (and yes, I pointed it out to them, but since I was buying other stuff they let me have it).

I'm 28, but girls say I look like 24 :P

I remember a funny fact. tc is the same age as my dad is and carcher is as old as my mum.

pure coincidence ;)

p.s.: no we 3 - tc, carcher and myself aren't "the botf-family" - but if we were then carcher had to be the woman ofc :lol:

I bought this game when it first came out and loved it ever since. Finding this site makes the game even better. Thanks to everyone for helping me out, I am sure to have many more simple questions still a rookie. 34 years old by the way.

haha, a necro that makes sense?

30 years ago: I was still a drooling toddler.
20 years ago: I was an eleven year old in the first year of high school having problems in that "People pick on X, X gets angry but tries to 'Be the better man', People continue to the point that X is a saint for having held out that long before loosing temper..." Screw that "Sticks and stones/ names" phrase. That comes from the same place as "REAL men dont cry" and "what ya whining about you nag".

10 years ago: No longer stressed from people problems. now stressed from employment problems.

... now: Given I was sacked three weeks ago, am beyond skint and having to take a pizza delivery job because its the worst time to get a job as a crane driver. that said, that job was Killing Me. both feet have aches from the fact that a poly-penko (dont know the ACTUAL name, plastic!) rigger matts at 2-inch thick and a metre in diameter are heavy fuckers... and when you drop something on your feet when wearing steel-toe-capped boots, it aint where your toes are where it lands. screw toes, those fuckers are useless - the main body of the foot though...

...
8 years ago or so, did the pizza delivery job before (same company, just different store within the franchise) and it was... the least stressed out I had EVER been. Let me put it this way: 3pm Wednesday, I went in for an interview. Thursday 5pm, started first shift. finished at midnight. Tonight, 5pm again, and just got back (clocked off at quarter to 2.) MOST drivers do like, around 6pm clock in, 9pm-10pm clock-out, after that even the busiest night (fridays) drops down from like, 15 drivers down to 4 at most. AND I get asked to do the late ones.
