None of the above.  I meant this:
http://www.boardgame-online.com/

Also, Takoshi, do some homework.  D&D is most certainly not a board game in any way shape or form.

It sometimes is with tiles and little figurines.
I'm so happy I could just tear out your intestines and strangle you with them!

So... I'd be a Luna-Aligned Mars Adept?

No, those are maps to help figure out who is where.  It helps alleviate confusion you may have.  But here's the thing -

In a board game, the board is standardized and mandatory.  In D&D, the board is shaped like the dungeon, and may not even exist.  In fact, in most games, it doesn't.  Only the most dedicated of fans actually go out and get actual boards, usually it's just some graph paper and finger, if something is even used at all.

Again, research.  Do it.

I play D&D, and I have played a boardgame version.  It wasn't just a map to assist with visuals.  It was an actual set out game that had no DM and had cards and other things that determined the outcome of the game. I describing it oddly I know, but bear with me.  I can't remember what it was called, that was like a year ago in some little hole-in-the-wall gaming shop. But it was a boardgame.

hmm I love apples to apples (and Nyran I thought it was funny too) and Boardgame Online (RoH got me into it)
Yes. It's true. I'm attracted to Males. Now you can all rest easy now that I confirmed it. Now we can all get back to our merry little uneventful lives now that I spouted this pointless fact that I spouted.

Have a GREAT day~

:36: That is not D&D!  That's naught but a shallow imitation!

:))   Alright, not saying I cared for it, but it was certainly based off of D&D.

Well, lots of things are to be fair.  Hell, Final Fantasy even.

Still, a board game would simply be made to appeal to casual people who didn't really understand the nuances.  It's a way to let nerds enjoy the franchise with their families, while when it comes to actually playing D&D, it's best for us to get with other nerds who'd appreciate the same level of complexity that the main game has to offer.

In any case, I'm still a big 3.5e fangirl.  I've yet to find an edition with as much expanded variety is that.  Soooo many things you can do with it~

I only got into D&D within the last year.  Before that D&D based books were my guilty pleasure(love you Drizzt).  I remember when THOSE made me feel like a complete nerd.  Now  I have become such a nerd, I don't give a poo :))

That's like calling Final Fantasy an FPS.  There's nothing technical about it - yer just wrong.

It does require a bit of knowledge of the fantasy world.    And some memory.   Thankfully I had a good deal of knowledge regarding the fantasy, but I still forget a lot of the D&D points you have to remember.

I very much like this idea. I do not see any point in the Clan Wars. All there is to it. Sure, I'd be out of a job here on TLW, but I already was, in effect. I like Rolina's idea,
