Playing in your 30s is a bit odd in the sense that it's rare, but I don't see why it would be bad. Pretty much everyone who was alive to see "old school" roleplaying is about that old or older. At that point though, looking for social interaction with teens is a bit weird.

My local group as well as a few others tend to be much older than that 30's and 40's. Very few kids. We had one teenager for a while and the guy who runs it son sometimes plays that's about it.

I suppose this differs from area to area and granted I moved onto 30K and don't play AOS (but who does???) , though plenty of 40K players still at the same groups.

Keep in mind that these games are old, the hobby is old. There are plenty of people who are 'old' who are still playing these games. For the most part, we don't play with teens, but it does happen. It is mostly by choice we don't play with teens by the way, lot of old stable groups out there.

For me, I play with teens rather often. But that is because it is a family thing. My daughter and the daughter and son of some friends (and my friends, their parents) play in a campaign I run. The campaign was mostly for my daughter, so the other kids ended up joining in.

Most of the gaming I do is with other older adults.

You're never too old to play. I still play with my dad. I mean for fuck's sake, look how old Gygax and his buddies were when they started. When I took some community college classes to finish my degree, there was this older divorced dude in my class, he was a huge D&D nerd, I should've talked to the guy even though he was ten years older than me we could've hung out. You are NEVER too old to play.

Don't feel guilty just because you resisted the vaginal jew and haven't gotten hitched to a fat sow and squirted out a couple shitspawn who consume your finances and life while your wife stays home reading internet blogs about "discovering herself" (i.e. nigger cock) and before you know it your shit life is even shittier. I know your pain, OP. You watched your friends peel off one by one, like adventurers travelling through a dungeon being picked off by monsters, or the survivors of a zombie apocalypse dying one by one. You lost one to a promising job across the country, another to a woman who dragged him away from the group to do whatever bullshit they do every weekend, another one probably just bored of gaming because he was never a real gamer to begin with. It's hard to watch them go. But you survived to the end, OP. Your passion for the hobby kept you going.

Now playing with teens is a bit weird, if you mean underage kids. There's some Youth Protection type shit in there that would make me uncomfortable. What you want is the early 20s college gaming club. Find the "dudebro" tier gamers (by which I mean the ones who are cool and aren't spergs), they are usually chill with older dudes. Hell, even most of the asperger gamers are pretty friendly.

Keep up the gaming, OP. Don't be ashamed of not being a cuck. Your friends sold out for a depreciating pussy and screaming children who will one day out them a million bucks for a gender studies degree while dying their hair pink and sewing a pigs cock to their pussy. In the meantime you can enjoy yourself.

This definitely seems odd, but it somewhat depends on context. For instance, if they are 18 or 19 years old, that's less odd than if they were 15 or 16. And if you're DMing a group for your nieces, nephews, much younger cousins, whatever, that is much less odd than playing in a game run by a high schooler and titled The Quest for Titties and Beer.

5e ruined Quest for Titties and Beer. They completely changed the underlying cosmology, and nerfed the death traps and logical puzzles to the point where it's nothing but a boring monster grind. I'd tell you to play the original, but since it's downright impossible to find these days, your best option is probably to play something else entirely. I suggest F2, In Search of Bitches, but the entire Titty Witch series is pretty good too.

Depends what you're playing. Tabletop wargames take up a lot of time and money from painting andcollecting miniatures, so you're 'too old' for them once you start a family. You're never too old for rpgs or card games (although I guess you might want to stick to casual mtg once you've got a family, since you won't want to spend the same as professional players do).

Around the time you decide it's time to give up on your independent desires and passions, so that you can focus fully on being a wage slave like a good boy.

It's a very personal question that varies from person to person.

As others have posted, it depends on context, but if your instincts are telling you "there's something wrong here" there probably is.

>Hosting teenagers in your home for gaming
Don't do this. Questions will be raised. Accusations of sex, drugs and rock & roll will ensue. You'll wind up on some sort of registry.

>Hosting games at the local game store
Acceptable. A mature, adult gamer showing leadership and attention to younger people who could use some structure to a fun activity. Lends some legitimacy to the store as well

>Attending games in some teenager's home
No. Parents like to know who their kids and teens are hanging out with, and they are hyper-aware of sex, drugs and rock & roll. Imagine the awkward handshakes as you are introduced to their parents. This is not your world.

>Gaming as a hobby "I'm into strategy games to unwind on the weekends."
You sound like a mature adult who is working on his education and career and amuses himself with a relatively unknown hobby (to the mainstream)

>"I'm a gamer. I like roleplaying games. Hennnnhhh!!!"
You're an unwashed manchild who is fascinated by japanese cartoons and who lives in a fantasy world. No one wants you near their children, let alone themselves. You might make their teenage kids feel better about themselves by contrast, but no doubt you'll snap one day and shatter their confidence in the adult world by showing them how low humanity can go if individuals are left to their vices. You're probably a chronic masturbator as well, or even a cosplayer.

My 1st campaign was me when I was 13, my brother who was 17, a guy in his early 30s, and his Mom who was around 50. Oddly enough, even though I was youngest I ended up being the DM most of the time.

Aside from the guy's mom not quite getting the rules and playing the "uptight paladin" thing painfully straight, it was pretty good.

Yes.

It basically mean there is something seriously wrong with you. Not because you are playing games, or because you are playing with minors, but because you have nobody of your own age group to play with. Which either means you don't have friends sharing your hobbies (which is weird and highly unlikely) or you've just barely entered the hobby (which I doubt).

Bottom line - you are some kind of freak.

No age restrictions, if you enjoy the game and enjoy the company of the other players theres no reason you couldnt play.

We also just introduced my Grandfather (84) to the game, and while hes slow to pick things up, he loves it.

I'm just saying, what matters is not what you do, but how you present it.
You can afford to play 3DS in public, if the circumstances around you are appropriate. If you are not going full retard regarding games, then you are perfectly fine playing them in public.

tl;dr You can get away with what would normally be frowned upon by the society if you establish proper context. That's not rocket science, yknow.
