Default Old Time Gamer or New Grog?

Obviously there are a lot of folks playing War Plan Pacific that are old hands at tabletop wargaming and who appreciate the influence of Victory in the Pacific (and while John hasn't played it, Fire in the Sky players should feel right at home with WPP too). I'm curious as to how many players are dedicated board gamers and how many are strictly PC-only, so here's a handy dandy poll to look into the matter.

I played A&A. That's it ;_;

I wish I had someone to play tabletop wargames with.

I have owned a lot of games I have never been able to play for lack of someone to play against. One of the drawbacks about living away from the city.

I have owned most PC wargames that didnt require forever and an year to play a game. This game I find perfect, mainly because in every wargame I play on the PC, I have a huge urge to start a new game when I get a chance to play instead of loading up a save, figuring out what was going on, and usually getting topplay very little because most of my time was spent figuring out just exactly what was going on when I saved. With this game I very rarely save, being able to finish a game in a decent amount of time.

30 yrs. ago the answer would have been a)
15 yrs. ago the answer would have been b)
Today the answer is c)
Thats the problem with a simple question.

But Tremy the question is about your individual historical experience with tabletop gaming, not your current experience. It's about the background of the folks playing the game.

First wargame I ever owned was Gettysburg or Tactics II, before the invention of the "hex". Now, I have several war games only on PC. I've ordered this one, but haven't received it yet.
