    I'm Ike and I'm addicted to online gaming, the more people in the game at one time the better. :)

    My age is 59; I'll be semi-retired in January, 2007 when I turn 60. I have read both the FAQ and the AUP and I agree with their terms.

    I'm uncertain which games I'm interested in playing with TOG, but at least Red Orchestra: Ostfront 1941-1945 which I presently play on the public servers and enjoy somewhat more than I thought I would.

    I also play NeverwinterNights (and I'm looking forward to NWN2). Perhaps D&D Online or one of the other MMOLRPGs ... or not. The nice thing to me about NWN is that the PW's are relatively small by MMOL standards and consequently more RP is done on them. Those PWs are .. well, more cosy and friendly that the larger MMOLs.

    Wargaming has been a hobby of mine since the days of Avalon Hill's Tactics II , working my way through the various board games including monsters like the Europa series, DNO, and Campaign for North Africa. Napoleonic 15 mm miniatures from the old Chainmail miniatures through Empire III. Computer gaming on the old GEnie network with Gemstone III, the original CounterStrike, multiplayer BattleTech, Air Warrior I, II, and III . Ultima Online, Acheron's Call, Everquest (original), World War II Online, and most recently the Combat Mission series of games and some campaign games using that line of WW2 games, like CM:BB - "CMMC" and "Onion Wars". Naval gaming like Wooden Ships and Iron Men and the Naval Module for Europa. All long since out of play and print, I'm certain.

    So, there you have it. "knock, knock, knock". Pssst! Joe sent me. ;)
