I was wondering: How many here actually play the Skirmish game? I'm sure we have a lot of people here who buy DDM, but who doesn't just use them for their D&D sessions?
Torment said:I play mostly DDM. No way I would buy minis solely for playing Dungeons & Dragons. Theres much better minis out there, and they aren't randomized... I'd stick with that.
The_Gneech said:for me, miniatures skirmish games are basically "chess with variations".
Festivus said:The rules got as complex as D&D, so why not just play D&D and get more for your money.
Anyone tried Dreamblade? It looks interesting.
Kae'Yoss said:Well, you said it: DDM is for when you don't have a full party.
Besides, it's not like D&D. In D&D, you tell a story, or maybe just sit there and hack up baddies together. You cooperate. That's what I love about D&D.
But sometimes, I want some nice competition. Tearing into the other guy's enemies with fang and claw, while my ranged support rains down destruction upon them.
The figures aren't really suitable for D&D (because of the scale alone, plus, you would have to proxy most of them), so it never picked my interest. Besides, from what I've seen, it's more like those collectible card games. Not my cup of tea.
Kae'Yoss said:That's quite an oversimplification there. You don't call D&D "book reading with variatons", either.
