When and where was your first game?


  • I was about ten years old when played my first game. My brother had invited some friends over in a free-for-all game of Axis and Allies. One of his peers could not make it, and seeing no other choice, he asked if I could play. After promptly reviewing the rules, I chose USA. This was one of enjoyable gaming experiences I have played. The whole game was a blast from start to finish! I can’t remember many details, other than it was the first game began my love of bombers. They won me the game! 😄


  • That sounds cool. Did you use lots of bombers?


  • yup gotta loe the axis players handing smackdowns 😉


  • “That sounds cool. Did you use lots of bombers?”

    Indeed. 🙂 Lots of bombers means lots of fun!


  • my first game was when i was stationed in england, back in 86. someone mom had sent it to give us something to do besides drink. needless to say, we played drunk… russia and japan ended up dividing my US, while england and germany passed out. was a pretty wild game.
    anyway, we tried it again the next day, merely hung over. i was HOOKED. id always hated chess, as chess has no element of luck, and most of the chess players i knew were boring. unfortuneatly, i took the game slightly more seriously than my friends, and actually thought about the game a bit, and developed… strategy… wasnt too long befor the rest of the game got bored after that. was several years later before i found a really great gaming group.


  • Yes, playing A&A high or drunk is very fun (or funny to those watching). 🙂


  • hey just so happens i loe to play chess and im not boring 😉 ur just lucky im such a nice guy 😄


  • “Yes, playing A&A high or drunk is very fun (or funny to those watching).”

    Moses, you are not even suppose to be drinking or ‘high’! 😮


  • Ha, such laws do not apply to me. 😛


  • never tried it high, but i bet its a blast 🙂


  • I played my first game when I was 11 at a friends house, back then we didn’t know that ger. and jap. had to be allied and usa, uk and the ussr had to be allied so I( USA) allied with my friend (GER) and since we only had 4 players we were against ussr and jap, as you might expct my first game was a victory 😄

  • Ha, I wonder what side would be more of the “Axis” and the other more of the “Allies?” :roll:
