    Hey all! I've been playing the Pokemon video games for years now and have recently been getting interested in the TCG. I am a TOTAL noob here and have never actually played the game. I've been thinking about checking out a league or two in my area (Las Vegas, NV), but at the ripe old age of 32 I'm wondering ifI'm just too old for this kind of thing. I remember feeling like a pedophile when I went to a pokemon event a couple years ago.

    Any advice?

    You are too old if you don't have kids. If you do then play with them and have fun.

    Even though this game was designed for kids you are not to old to play. I am 50 and still play even though my son is almost 19. I have seen people older then myself that play.

    At my league parents play with there kids and grandfathers play with their grandsons. Whether you have kids or not, you are never to old to play Pokemon in any form! (Video Game, TCG, TFG, etc.)

    Just go and have fun. You aren't too old. Admittedly my kids play but both my wife and I do too and we are both well past 32.

    Play! Many folks are above 30. You could also become a League leader, a TO, learn the rules and become a Prof and a Judge. Many things for the "adults" to do in this great game!

    Theres been people as old as their mid 60's playing that I'm aware of. Those people usually had children/grandchildren involved, but you're never too young. I have alot of friends that are early/mid 20's that have been playing since the day it came out with no sign of letting up.

    I don't see a reason why a person as old(young?) as you are can't play pokemon with full confidence.

    I'm 31 and feel in my prime hehe! Banginbox is around the same age I think and was 2nd at Worlds two years ago. The WCSTS2001 Day 1 Champ Jean Marc-Schosse was considerably older. Shuffle and cut!

    "You're only as old as you feel"

    I'm 49 and I just started playing with my grandkids who live me. My oldest son is 32, I have four other adult kids, they are all gamers. I have resisted becoming one for the last 20 years and now I'm not sure why.

    Pokemon is awsome build a deck and play

    I am 38 my wife is 34, we play even though our daughter at 4 is too young to have ever played a game yet.
    We have been involved in pokemon tcg from the beginning, or people brand new to the game that is we started playing this game 4 years prior to the birth of our daughter. (We did take a year off when my wife was pregnant)

    So no you are not weird if you show up and play pokemon without any kids. At our league we have a couple who are both older then me and they play without having any kids with them.

    The Pokemon community is full of a lot of great people, and if you enjoy the game of Pokemon, please do not let a silly thing like age keep you away. I hope you decide to play. And if you ever feel the need to talk deck strategy with anyone feel free to send me a Private Message.
