Tabletop Games

:iconhappienoodleboy:
happienoodleboy Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2012
I've been playing Shadowrun 4th Edition for the last few years and dabbled in a bit of Dresden Files and Victoriana more recently and can't wait for my copy of Traveler 5 to arrive. How about you guys, what pen and paper games do you enjoy. Heck what tabletop games do you enjoy, boardgames, card games etc? I'd love to know :)

Mostly tabletop RPGs, but I've only tried few of them:
D&D (3.5 and 4th), Starwars d20, Savage Worlds, Pathfinder d20, White Wolf games (Vampire the masquerade), and Call of Cthulhu.

I have three casual boardgames that I always play when hangout with friends and family in home / friends home :
Game of Life, Formula D, and Blokus

I have scrabble too but I don't count that =p

How can you not count scrabble, that is one of the greatest games ever made!

Dungeons and Dragons is great. Also, there's this one game that... er... I can't remember the name of it. You put up hexagons and build roads to them to acquire the resources.

Ive been into Warhammer since like 2002. Stopped for a while. Got back into it when 8th edition came out.

to much money involved in that game for my liking though it does look like a good game

yes i agree with that. very expensive. Im not really buying to play now a days. Its more painting. so I buy a models every once in a while and paint that up

If you get your models used or off ebay you can get them for like a quarter of the price. I never buy 'em full price. It's a complicated game but when you get experienced it becomes fast and really fun.

Depending on where you live, if there are any Games Workshop stores around you can play pickup games there using their terrains?

nah, the nearest is in the city centre which is too far away to be worth bothering, plus i spend all week traveling in and out of city centre to go to work so kinda sick of it, but a good suggestion nonetheless :)

Multiple rule sets, I suppose. It's a lot like D&D, with multiple books and versions of it. I can't really describe it very well, sorry.

AD&D used to be my favorite weekend pastime with my high school friends. It was not unusual for us to stay up all night doing dungeon crawling while emptying a can after a can of Coke or Mountain Dew (or even Jolt). Fortunately, none of us were smokers back then.

Risk was another good all-nighter game. I used to play that from time to time while living in a dorm. Spring break was the best time to play; there were always nerds around who were not going out to be with their families.

Chess was pretty fun. In particular, I used to play a lot with my girlfriend; best dates in my life.

A lot of poeple are recommending Risk, I have played it a few times but it's too long a game and it is a bit dry.

AD&D is definitely something I'd like to get into but not sureif my mates would be into it, also rulebooks are expensive lol

With regards to AD&D rule books, I would not recommend everyone to buy them. The players do not need them to be able to play. Only the Dungeon Masters and campaign builders need them. Even then, good story flow takes precedence over game mechanics. Based on my brief experience as a dungeon master, I have noticed that becoming immersed in the game rules beyond bare basics (e.g. character generation and combat rules) was not worth the trouble. I should be spending more time in making a campaign more interesting, not in becoming a rules lawyer.

If the players are willing to spend some money, they should invest in a few props like lead miniature figurines instead, in order to represent their characters when running combat over a grid. But do not go overboard.

D&D 3.5 & Magic the Gathering for me :D

We also played a home-brew zombie survival RPG when we had a blackout one night.

40K is really cool, but unfortunately it's very expensive to get in to, of I would have.

As for card games...Cards Against Humanity is one of my favorites. It's a fun party game if you like raunchy humor & aren't easily offended.

You can only really get it from their website which takes to you Amazon when you click to buy the game...so if Amazon.com ships there then I bet you can!

Was so bad ass, had mount pieces, war wagons, and oversized boss pieces. Even the characters special abilities were color coded into their stat base.

Sounds like it was very thought out, did everything you need come in the box or was it more like warhammer and you had to buy the miniatures piecemeal?
