    Obvious contrarian and passive aggressive old prat, who is taken far too seriously by some and not seriously enough by others.

    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.

    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):

    Now:

    My own Ancient rules using 15mm figures

    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.
