Ok, hair is down, MB version 1984 in college.  I was, lets see,  29.  The board went across the dorm everynight, some where in play. five player games, great fun.  Still have the original board.  The playing pc we use are so brittle, we break some each time we play.   We used them to augment the AA50 sets.

Played the MB version back in the day (don't remember the year) as a kid. Stopped as I felt it was too biased towards the allies. Back then There was no internet so I didn't know about a bid. Started up with revised, maybe two years ago and have been playing strong since. Now with AA50.

 I was used as a place holder at the ripe old age of 7  in 1985 by my brother and his friends who needed someone to be russia, they had no idea how important russia really is when they started playing.  I have been playing as often as possible ever since and have loved every game no matter how great the win or how terrible the loss.   I look forward to many years of A&A.

Im 25, been playing with my cousins and brother since i was 10. I stoped playing when i reached H.S. but I've been playing 1-2 times a week since I bought AA50. I'm a WWII buff. I play anything that has to do with WWII, Call of Duty, Panzer General, Wolfenstein etc.

Hey everyone. I'm 34, played my first ever game in 2001 against the AI on the Hasbro pc version! Loved it so much I just had to have the board games - and now I own every variant, from MB to 1942. Well and truly sold my soul to Axis & Allies! Can't wait for Pacific '40!  smiley

Played my first game a little over 2 years ago at the age of 13. Still playing it, can't wait for Pacific and Europe 40, but right now I'm hooked on the Anniversary edition.

I read a review of A&A in Games magazine in 1984 and anxiously awaited its release. Didn't find it until January 1985 in a Toy's R Us store. I've been hooked ever since.

played my first in 1991.  a friend and i worked at mcD's and the boss said come on over and play. we were 15 and  he was new in town and got us hooked.  he has since moved on, but that same friend and i play aa50 almost twice a week.  we lost some interest during revised, got into again during AAE and AAP, but aa50 has been "The Game".  i am now 33, and my 8 y/o daughter and 2y/o son are getting into it.  she plays(kinda) and he loves to just play with the pieces.

Would have been about '97 for me. A friend of mine bought it and we were so excited we played our first 3 games before we even read the rule book.

It took buying the old '95 PC version before I actually understod how the game mechanics worked. And we kicked that lame IA's ass every single week.

Played AAR with a friend about 2 years back and have been absoloutely addicted ever since.

It's good to see that there are a lot of players over the age of thirty. I'm about to leave my twenties behind.
