D&D, Cyberpunk, and Mutant Chronicles. My top three for sure. They're always in revolving order though, with maybe Mutant Chronicles staying at the top longer than the other two.

I play Magic: The Gathering Online Planeswalker 2013. It's just slightly cheaper than playing traditional magic, but it's fun nonetheless. If you have some extra cash to burn, the startup deck is like $10. Boosters are about a dollar cheaper than retail. I played Yu-Gi-Oh online as well, but they are unfortunately shutting down there servers and offer no way for new players to buy/earn cards. It was fun while it lasted. I'm not sure if you're into RTS or not, but Edgeworld is amazingly fun as well!

D&D - in fact I just ran my 3.5 Eberron campaign on Friday evening! I used to play MTG but that was way back in the days of Revised. I just didn't have time for it when I was raising the kids and never picked it up again.

I like your taste in games.

My favourite would have to be Goodman Games' Dungeons & Dragons classics series. 1st edition dungeon delving using 3rd & 4th edition rulesets. Awesomeness.

I'd suggest also checking out Pathfinder. Paizo refined the 3.5 ruleset to the point where it's and insanely elegant system.

And finally, Dark Sun setting in 4th edition. Dark Sun is the best fantasy world ever, imo. Pity no one has been able to novelise it properly.

I'm going with Original Yu-Gi-Oh TCG (back when it was a super-broken, incomprehensible mess), and the Pokemon TCG. Got myself a Dark Explorers Starter Deck at Gen Con, and a Black/White Next Destinies at Target.

I've had some passing interest in Magic for a while, but haven't taken the plunge yet. It looks like it could get quite expensive and I've already got enough hobbies that drain my wallet :P

However, I've recently backed a couple of deck-building card games on Kickstarter - one is called "Lost Legacy" and the other "Pixel Lincoln". I don't know a great deal about either of them, but they both look like fun and were reasonably priced. They may not stack up to similar games like Dominion (which I'm interested in getting at some point) but given that I'm not that well-versed in those sort of games I probably won't even notice :P

I used to have a blog link here. I'll put it back up when the blog has something to read.

I may have asked this question in the past, but here goes again just in case:

Back in the days when AOL was a thing, there were some dedicated TSR chat rooms. In those chat rooms, they had a dice-rolling mechanic built-in and there were official moderators with "DM" in front of their screen names. People could actually role-play in the chat rooms. Does anything like that still exist? I'm not really able to get face-to-face with a decent gaming group any more, but would love the opportunity to do something online that wasn't play-by-email.

@Magi I guess so... There's D&D Online nowadays. Dunno if that counts.

Nope, and I have no idea why. I seriously just spent an hour looking since I wanted to try that myself. Found a lot of scams and hentai RPs, though. Ypu might want try a MUD or something. They're more like Computer RPGs I guess, but I've found them to be fun from time to time.

Wizards were developing their own, but abandoned it.

I have no idea - I've looked for a solution sporadically in the past, but no luck. I would love for an easy way to play D & D Online, because that would be the only way I could get a game going these days.

Perhaps Virtual Tabletop games could be the answer? I'm not quite sure how it works yet, but it could be worth looking into. None of the ones I looked at seem to be singleplayer compatible, however, so I'm still holding out for Crimson Shroud to come to the U.S. someday.

Seems nifty. It kind of reminds me of the old Hero Quest board game (which was amazingly awesome!)

Thanks for the link.
