How Old are Diplomacy Players

#1 Post by cdngooner » Thu Feb 25, 2021 8:29 pm

I ask because I suspect that I am the oldest in most of my games (I am 56). Tabletop Diplomacy was big in my university years (the 80s and 90s). Has the game been passed down to younger players, or is it still a Generation X type of game?

How old are you?

I'm 25, which means that back in the good old days around 2015 when my persona shined through on this forum in such lovable, professional ways I was about 8.

I'm 28. We had a teacher who taught about two dozen of us Diplomacy in Middle School, but I don't know if any of those others ever kept playing.

It seems I am in the minority of being a young whippersnapper who is a member of the newest generation (not counting Gen Alpha).

I must say, lacking a few games. Any classic games needing people...

Should we start a Gen Z only game?

This may be an idea to do. I, for one, am for this.

I'm 17, joined when I was 14/15. It's a fun game! Quite a few at my school play Diplomacy on this website, I joined because someone introduced it to me.

35 years of age, so technically a millennial (an older one). Can't remember how I came across the game, but it was roughly 5 years ago.
