DandD -still have the books!

Many of my skirmish games have the same vibe, role playing a character from game to game.

Uesugi Kenshin Supporting Member of TMP17 Feb 2021 10:35 a.m. PST

One I forgot to add that's debatable as to being an RPG was the original "Rogue Trader" in 1987.

I leave it up to the group as to whether it should be included or not.

I actively DM'ed (rarely played) RPGs from the late 1970s until 1990. I quit when I was in my early 30s and was a family man. Got back into it for a while with the family in the early 2000s playing Star Wars prequels using action figures. Now at age 60, I look back at those years as many of the best times of my life. Thanks for bringing back those memories, Uesugi!

D&D 1E
AD&D 1E
D&D Basic, Expert (became our favorite D&D version)
Call of Cthulhu 1E & 2E (best RPG games and campaigns I ever ran! All homemade.)
Traveller
MegaTraveller
Twilight 2000
RuneQuest 2E & 3E
DragonQuest (SPI & TSR) (This got me into miniature gaming)
Universe (SPI)
Pirates & Plunder (best forgotten)
Star Wars (WotC d20)
Star Wars (FFG) (my favorite SW system)
Dawn Patrol
Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay (1E)
Thieves Guild

If you ask what RPGs and suppliments do I own, I would have to upload a spreadsheet! Dragons horde gold. I horde RPG rulebooks, supplements, and magazines! ;-)

Uesugi Kenshin Supporting Member of TMP17 Feb 2021 1:55 p.m. PST

I also owned but never played Paranoia, DC Heroes, GURPS, and Advanced Marvel Super Heroes.

One of the bright spots of this whole social-distancing situation is that I have discovered the possibilities of online gaming. Now I can play with friends no matter where they live. (I'm currently DMing an onlineD&D game with some TMP old timers from back in the day, and we're having a blast!)

USAFpilot17 Feb 2021 10:53 p.m. PST

I own a few, but for actually playing only two:

Anyone else ever played Everway?

Personal logo Editor in Chief Bill The Editor of TMP Fezian18 Feb 2021 12:45 p.m. PST

For a poll, a better question would be:

Which 5 RPGs have you played the most?

Uesugi Kenshin Supporting Member of TMP18 Feb 2021 1:12 p.m. PST

Yes Bill, absolutely. I'm sure that would make your job easier.
;-)

As an aside, I always wanted to play Paranoia. It seemed like such a great idea but I never found enough players for it.

Oberlindes Sol LIC Supporting Member of TMP09 Mar 2022 8:10 p.m. PST

The poll is set up with multiple rounds, in each of which we pick 5. It's quite possible to have more than 5 in some rounds, and maybe 0 in other rounds, so I don't think that this is a good structure for this particular poll.
