    I noticed that there's an entire forum dedicated to digital gaming, but what about nice analog gaming? My roomates and I are huge gamers, one of them used to run a large gaming group in Toledo, Ohio. So, we've played lots of fun board, card, role playing, and whatever games. What are some of your favorites? Mine would be, at the current monment -

    Cards Against Humanity (Think Apples to Apples for horrible, horrible, people) .
    Zombie Dice
    Pathfinder

    How about anyone else?

    If you haven't yet, be sure to check out Tabletop on Youtube. It's a half-hour show dedicated to tabletop games.

    Poker & Uno mostly. Some of those tabletop games like warhammer etc look fun, just to deep.

    I have a hard enough time keeping up with video games at my age.

    I love table top gaming! I'm actually in the process of creating my own Transformers RPG using a D10 system. I've made it so making a character sheet for existing TF's is easy, all you need is the box stats. It's my baby. Once I get the system completely hashed out I want to do a basic RPG book for it.

    I ran something similar with a group of friends a few years ago and it really worked well. Especially for character creations. Some of the stat titles had to change out of necessity (rank was useless in a gaming system while Tech Specs had no stats for armor rating).

    Other games we've played are Traveler, AD&D, Airship Pirates. I've also enjoyed Heroclix quite a bit.

    I still love board games, and have recently bought a few to play with my daughter and friends.

    I have all three of the D&D Adventure Series, Castle Ravenloft, Wrath of Ashardalon, & The Legend of Drizzt - all three are fun dungeon crawl games with a lot of action that don't require a Dungeon Master. I also recently picked up Star Trek: Fleet Captains, and I wrote a little mini-review of it over in the board games thread. That game is a Trek fan's wet dream, right there. I've only tried playing a solo game so far, just to get the hang of the rules and so forth, but...yeah, it's a blast. Almost like playing through a season of a Trek TV series.

    And oh yeah, AD&D and I are old friends from way back.

    I'm a huge Warhammer 40,000 fan. I just don't get time to play it anymore although I do keep reading the fiction. Such a huge and interesting universe.

    I play a lot of games. D&D 3rd, Star Wars, and Cyberpunk 2020 are games we have going now. We are debating getting the Serenity/Firefly books to start a game on that.
    We used to play a lot of Recon and Battletech/Mechwarrior.
    For Hex games Third World War, 3rd Reich/Rising Sun, ASL, and WiF eat up a lot of time and space.
    You don't need to write up your own rules for RPG Transformers, Cartoon Action Hour has rules for it already.

    Just started in tabletop, specifically Pathfinder. my character is a half-orc Cleric. Due to crit, having a scimitar, and having the killer trait, I got to do 13 damage to a golbin (i think) on one turn, killed him the next. Group was in shock that the Cleric killed someone with a melee weapon :lol

    I love DnD and other D20 based tabletop games, but it has been far too long since I rolled dice.

    Yes I have, an excellent way to shoot dead about 6 or 7 hours.
