Aging and Board Games

Our topic for this weeks #BoardGameHour twitter chat is a little different; I'm going for somthing a little abstract but that I think will be interesting "aging and board game". So anything related to age (as its my birthday on the 6th of July... Oh, publishers can send me games ;0).

To help us not have to do it all the way though the hour, here at the definitions we are using...

Your "Aging" questions are:

Q1: How old are you, how long have you been playing hobby board games & what got you started? #BoardGameHour

Q2: Thinking about a game you love, how old would the youngest player you would play with be (average kid in general)? #BoardGameHour

Q3: What games are aimed at kids, but adults can enjoy just as much? #BoardGameHour

Q4: What modern (Chess etc are excluded) game is the oldest in your collection that still gets played regularly ? #BoardGameHour

Q5: What themes or mechanics do you consider have aged well or keep getting better?  #BoardGameHour

Q6: What themes or mechanics do you consider to be outdated or to have aged poorly? #BoardGameHour

Q7: What ages are there that have old characters in? are there any games about aging? #BoardGameHour

Q8: If you're or were a designer / publisher how would you play-test games aimed at kids?#BoardGameHour

Q9: Does nostalgia (ie. when in your gaming life you played a game) affect how you rate and feel about games in your collection? #BoardGameHour

Q10: Has your age affected your gaming preferences? if so how? #BoardGameHour

Q11: If it was your birthday, what game would you want to play? #BoardGameHour

See you at 2pm Eastern Time 7pm UK, when I will be one year older :0)
