    What did you play first and what are you playing now?

    #159858


    Then, using Airfix Romans and British.

    Now, using hard plastic 28s and also metal 3mms.

    After plastic army men. HeroQuest, still play it, every now and again. I have two sets one for general playing and the other for retirement fund with two of the four expansion sets.
    Now I play One Hour Wargames when I get the chance.

    Then: Adeptus Titanicus 1st edition though only a few times before the Epic Second edition was my first true game. So wish to get a copy and relive the joy of opening.

    Now: Warcry, is the last game but Epic 3rd edition is my favourite to play at the moment.

    Hmm..

    Then (1980):

    TRACTICS using 20mm plastics

    Now:

    My own Ancient rules using 15mm figures

    My own WW2 rules using 20mm figures (same ones from 1980 still in the mix!)

    I’m not sure which came first in the early to mid ’70’s, but contenders are Thane Tostig, Chainmail, D&D or Airfix Magazine Guides WWII rules.

    Currently playing Shadow of the Eagles Napoleonics rules.

    Then: Adeptus Titanicus, the big box of beetleback warlords and polystyrene buildings.

    Not quite the first I played, but the first that became ‘my game’

    Now: Ga Pa, Great Northern war.  Still in 6mm though, some habits you don’t want to break 😉

    Now:

    I’m nothing if not consistent. I still have, play, and enjoy Ogre on a regular basis, probably my most frequent go-to for a quick game of whatever.
