Brick Non-Graphical Gaming
It makes me a very sad panda to see only video games listed here! So let's go fishing!

Does anyone play Flames of War? What factions/companies, yo? Did you have a history nerdgasm and paint your little dudes in period specific uniforms? Did you go hardcore mode and paint unit patches on their tiny 15mm shoulders?

Discuss! Cool

Aha! I see you did not discover some required paraphernalia: beer in one hand with beer reinforcements in a fridge/cooler. Everything gets so much better, graphics included, about half way through the game. Goodevil

But you can't be a level 12 paladin in real life, yo. Tongue

Just like I can't actually be a WWII battalion commander Smartass

RE: Non-Graphical Gaming
DnD, but as defined by the 1970 manuals. Hack and slay and loot, but without all the later really far out characters. Just the Fighters, Clerics, Magic Users, and Thieves.

We play it as as sort of a mashup between DnD and Civilization II. Start with a Freehold that is nothing but a clearing hacked out of the forest, then develop it with loot that we explore to get. But instead of using papers and dice, we use a text based program to handle all the lookups and combat resolution - makes for vastly faster game play since we don't have to shuffle pages trying to find combat table level 7.

If something comes up that isn't in our program, then we can just fall back to the ole 20 sided dies.

We just started a new 4.0 DND campaign today...going pretty well, til our DM decided to kill me for disputing one of his calls....Sorry bro, but a wolf companion can move seperately from the ranger...it's its own entity.
