This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

I think you need to add Dreamblade to this list, as that's easily my answer at this point. I've played about 10 games of Dreamblade so far and it's quite an amazing game. I'm starting to blog about my matches; the depth of tactics and strategy is refreshing, and the gameplay is unique.

Pirates look great, but DDM rocks more!

Another vote for loving the look of the ships for Pirates, but I actually get use out of the D&D mini's. Now if only they didn't make them so addicting.:heh:

Take care Nothingland. You were always one of the most ridiculously good-looking sites on the internets, and the web too. I'll miss you.  -"Derek Zoolander MD" at a site long gone.

I want to take my Pirates ships and make use of them in my RPing somehow, maybe someday doing a Freeport campaign or something. The little things are just too cool. :singdance:


That's why my friends and I started buying them - we have a session coming up involving several fleets of ships and we wanted to be able to visualize it better.  Now we're hooked on the game, too.

There are some issues with the rules, I agree, but IMO many arise from the arbitrators not having enough feedback from the designers.  But my friends and I have been able to work through the issues we had, and we have a blast when we play!

I had to say "DDM" as it's the only one I've purchased (2 cases + a few packs).  Really, though, I don't have the group to do any minis games.  It's D&D or a boardgame (Carcasonne or Puerto Rico, usually).  Any suggestion of variance earns odd looks.

Chess works, and it's easy to get the full set.
Yeah? Well fuck you, too.

You say that, but I've ended up with too many pawns and only one queen! The queen rocks I need at least another 3 in my army, I can probably afford to loose the bishops and rooks to cover the additional points cost.

I had to say DDM too, but actually I really like Crimson Skies, thankfully I've picked up everything for it on the cheap.

This may be sad, but you've got me thinking that chess would be interesting with a point buy.

I voted Star Wars, but I don't actually play it. I don't play any mini's games, I just think the Star Wars mini's are pretty well done. :imsorry:
