Any Gamers Here?

I saw a post in which W2R mentioned an old AD&D game.

Any other gamers here?

Ticktock, playing Hero System and Ticket To Ride. (Also, Euchre for the card players out there.)

DW and I had a regular D&D 3rd edition group for a couple of years around 6-8 years ago. I've got a whole shelf of D&D books. I was the Dungeon Master of that group, which was a fair amount of work. Never did finish the primary module we were working on. It was a lot of fun, and we'd start it up again if we could find a few more players.

Used to play D&D when my friends and family were close. Moved away and things fell apart. I game online now. RTS,MMORPGS and FPS. Good way to keep in touch with friends and family. Been pretty slow lately. Just playing SOS now a few times a week.

AD&D here. Have GM'd and played for years.
Not so sure what to think of 4th edition yet. I like computer games too. But nothing compares to getting together at a table, kicking back with a few beers and trouncing some Orcs

Dang me, there's a 4th edition? (quick search ... whoa) We had only started to get used to 3.5 before we stopped.

Orcs, kobolds, trolls at higher levels, it's all good. None of you table-top players live in the Philly area, do you? Now I really want to play. We can only rustle up three players these days, which doesn't really work all that well.

I've played all the Zelda games.
Super Metroid is also a favorite.
Mario Kart and Diddy Kong Racing are still played.

I am temporarily retired from my life's passion, gaming, sadly a j*b got in the way recently. Trying to get it out of the way as quick as possible so I can get back to gaming. Played euchre quite a lot during Middle School, a midwest classic.

Pretty much, I enjoy and can play any game. I especially like competitive games, MMORPG's like WoW (and any other game from Blizzard), casino games blackjack/texas-holdem (my first time playing blackjack I won a small tournament), chess, RTS, a little FPS, RPGs, arcade games like skiiball and pinball and of course console games, my favorite series being Final Fantasy, Zelda and Super Smash Brothers.

I have played pretty much every console, from an original pong game console (which precedes atari) to the latest nexgen consoles. I also had a custom gaming PC I built.

D&D, at least in tabletop form, is a bit past my time though, played a few PC games based on the D&D universe though.

I've been enamored of the 'portal' game in the 'orange box' package. Waiting with great interest for the alleged release of a full game based on the format.

I accidentally got myself sucked into Age of Conan.

When I visit my folks I try and get a good Euchre game going now and then but they're more into Hand and Foot these days. At the mill I interned at, we'd play 3-4 Euchre games in 30 minutes.

I played a little D&D in college in the 1980s. Also extensively played the "Ultima" and "Wizardry" series on the computer around the same time.
