I've always wanted to do some D&D, but none of my friends are quite as nerdy as me so they have no interest. I do have a couple of old rulebooks though, as it's still nice to read the lore and know the rules. Plus a nice 20-sided die feels like a precious gem :)

I know there are online ways to play it, but it's best experienced in a social group (I did manage to get a game going once of a similar game based on the Fighting Fantasy book system) all in the same room. Possibly best served with alcohol, but I'll leave that to the individuals.

I own the core rulebooks for 4th, but I use my old 3.5 set which I have a quarter of the books but have a friend with access to all of them. I used to run games once a week with co-workers. I've been playing D&D since I was 13. Once my kids get old enough that's going to be our Friday night game night , lol.

I think the immediate install price for a good set of warhammer figures is why I never got into it.

Played with a friend once it was a blast.

I used to play tabletop when I was young.. Ive tried to even found new mates to play with but most people dont even know what those means these days.

D&D is more fun than play poker or cards.

Someone should bring tabletop D&D to mainstream!

I dont understand you.. I played Dragonlance, Forgotten Realms, Ravenloft, Dark Sun, Cyberpunk back in the days, etc etc.

Maybe Blizzard should get things rolling and make WoW tabletop. Robert Kotick, money money money.

Warcraft Miniature Game (http://www.amazon.co.uk/World-Warcraft-Miniatures-Game-Core/dp/B0019EQTOM) is pretty much that, isn't? Looks pretty good too. I'd be tempted if I hadn't sunk so much money into the WoW Card Game, Warhammer 40k, Magic The Gathering and goodness knows how many other things over the years ;)

For D&D all I have is this set (http://www.amazon.com/Dungeons-Dragons-Dragon-Quest-Game/dp/1560765526), which is old and rather basic now, though still playable enough in theory, though as I say I've never had a full game going.

Some of the older version of D&D are better to play in my opinion than the newer one ( 4th Edition).

That last campaign I did was in that setting and I have to admit it is my favorite as well, i tried Dark sun & Eberon, didn't get into them as much.

tell me about it! I spent hundreds back when I was playing... spent weeks painting them all... for about 4 years, I ran demos of W40K over a weekend at a local gaming convention... all of them were stolen when I moved West... still burns me that I don't have them... lol

thankfully, I still have my "wall of shame"... three shelves of gaming materials... the D&D game I'm running is 2nd Ed, I know it's archaic but it's what I'm most accustomed to... lol got some Shadowrun, GURPS, Heavy Gear, Vampire (table and LARP), even Gamma World stuck in there somewhere...

anyone ever hear of Battlelords of the 23rd Century? really sick system, but complicated as frak...

Haven't heard of Battlelords, but the rest sound familiar.

most of the really hardcore table top gamers I've met haven't ever heard of it... it was written by a group of guys in Buffalo, NY... I lived kinda near there, so our gaming shop carried it... they're still in print, even coming up with a new revision of the main rules... it's one of those sleeper games... not many know about it, but the ones that do are usually huge fans...

I've stuck with D&D 3.5 ran two campaigns in that setting and 1 in Rifts. Right now I don't have a group so all I've been doing is setting up scenario's, 1 off adventures, and 2 campaign idea's. The reason for this is I intend to get my kids into it when they get old enough and I want some stuff ready to go for them.

YES!! this is exactly what I did, too!!!! I met my wife of 14 years when our son was 10... he sat in on gaming sessions several times and finally felt like he could keep it all straight... now he's got a fine collection of books he's always adding to... we both have 3rd ed, but we always end up with 2nd...

the one I'm running right now isn't anything with a grand story, I've got two brand new players and I don't want to bog them down with a grand picture their first time out... lol

Yeah I remember those sessions, my little sister made a spell caster and charges a knoll think she can go toe to toe for her first adventure.... Did not end well, lol.

GURPS is geekier. Waiting until I finish watching the original series (the remake was good, but so far the original is better) to break in to my near-perfect condition copy of GURPS: The Prisoner... I'm so proud.
