This is such an addictive game. Well done Sparticus. Firstly, how do you make friends on this site, as its not exactly OK Cupid or Facebook? Secondly, what is the average age of all the players? Mainly ask as ALL my friends say I am way to old to be spending this much time on a gaming site.

Thanks for the positive feedback, glad you like the game :)

For adding friends, you can either just add some of the higher rated players and more active players. You don't have to know them to be their friend the site :) It does help too having more people on your friends list as then you can see when those players are in the multiplayer lobby and you can join them

Or, better yet, tell your real life friends to come play here too :P

As for average age, I am not sure. I do not record that info. I personally am 35 years old and I'll be the first to admit I'll play video games till the day I die. I currently am playing Dota 2 right now and love it.

When the wife and kids leave for a weekend I can be found playing video games for 17 straight hours in a day.... and I'm proud of that. lol

I'm turning 34 this year, so chalk another one up for the old category.

BTG is great because I can pause and walk away or play in short bursts, which is important when you have kids.

I am almost 30 years old, so you see there are many 'old' people here :)

Tookie, maybe you are way too young to be spending this much time on a gaming site.
I m weird old and because of alzheimer i m often forgeting that i had already finished a tournament.
All the maps are always new to me - thats great.
Therefore i m trying a btg-map for the first time again and again.
Unfortunately i m physically too slow and that is the only reason, why i reach frequently only second place behind anonemouse2010 (who is 60 years younger then me).
Sometimes parkinson and alzheimer are working together and i forget to shake and can win a Tournament.

Thanks to all for the replies. Jackre, your mind is way to quick for you to be suffering from the ailments you described. As for winning a tournament, didn't you set everyone on me yesterday on the multi player? Good one, lesson learnt on how to lose 22 lives in 2 seconds. By the way I am 41, not married and no kids, and my PS3 is gathering dust while I play on this site. Keep up the good work, and Anonemouse2010, watch out..... one of these fine days(before I turn 75) I plan to get really close to one of your scores. Be warned, I don't want you to die of fright!
