Strat-o-Matic Celebrates 50th Anniversary
Anyone here play Strat-o-Matic? The game is a tabletop sports game available in cards-and-dice as well as a PC version. It was invented 50 years ago by Hal Richman.
Here are two links to coverage of the gala event in Manhattan on February 11th. The first is a print article, the second a link to a video.

I have been playing since 1973 although I took a break from it in the 1990s until a few years ago when being semi-retired (and now retired) gave me more time to resurrect this hobby.
Retired in late 2008 at age 45. Cashed in company stock, bought a lot of shares in a big bond fund and am living nicely off its dividends. IRA, SS, and a pension await me at age 60 and later. No kids, no debts.
