    Misc RPG/Fantasy Brahs. Recommend Me A Table Top Game Like... Reps for Good Answers.

    Used to have a friend when I was younger (early 90's) with an epic board game called Hero Quest.
    They can be found still, in varying condition, on Ebay etc. but bloody expensive.

    Is there anything off the shelf, currently, that is comparable but easy to obtain/cheaper?

It just blows up, and it feels really different. It feels fantastic.
    It's as satisfying to me as, uh..."

    reps my man.
    I have kids these days and would absolutely love the opportunity to show them how epic being a kid was in the 90's.

    Never played Warhammer but it always seemed to me like a very involving thing requiring commitment and lots of time/money.
    Hero Quest was awesome - so well contained.

    Games Workshop has moved back into Specialist Board Games for the tabletop in recent years.

    You now have many, many, contained board games with their own rule sets, dice, terrain bits, and small squads of models available for purchase from them these days. They've taken Hero Quest to a new level, with so much more variety and depth.

    Silver Tower was my favorite from recent years. The models were amazing and the story of climbing the tower was epic - each floor had new illusions/environments as you progressed to get the Sorcerer up top. Check out the Age of Sigmar > Boxed Games section of the Games Workshop site.

    For future settings there are likewise just as many contained rule sets/board games for Warhammer 40k. These are called Kill Team rules - small crack squads of alien hunters or mercenaries go up against other units with missions, scenarios, efficient and fast games. Necromunda and Kill Team are probably the most popular right now - Necromunda in particular has breathtaking models/sculpts.

    Games Workshop has basically revived the old rulesets to emphasize 1 to 2 hour game lengths as opposed to needing to be a rules lawyer with a big book in your hand for an entire day to play a game.

    Just go to the GW site and look at the boxed games section. Plenty to choose from and there are lots of expansion sets, booster packs, etc.

    I've always been a hobbyist primarily, but you don't need to be skilled at building or painting models to have fun. You can buy the rulebooks from any set you like, then acquire some squads from eBay for cheap if you just want to dive into the playing. You should check out Kijiji first though, just type Warhammer and you'll find insanely cheap stuff, people will sell entire armies for super low prices just to shift their plastic piles.
    Feels like I need to be a rules lawyer to read your post brah.
    Just kidding.

    Will check out the Games Workshop website as suggested.

    Not really sure Warhammer is what I had in mind though.

    NFC what that is.
    I always assumed D&D was 100% using your imagination.
    But you're saying it's an actual game with a board and pieces?

    My favorite tabletop is Mordheim, by GW, where you play as a warband looting a city that got hit by a meteorite

    However there’s a similar but much more recent and still supported game that simplifies a lot of rules called Frostgrave

    You play as a wizard looting an ancient city of magic that was destroyed

    You have an apprentice, and then a bunch of goons or specialist soldiers. You only need to track experience and growth for wizard and apprentice, but it’s a great campaign game where you can have tons of battles with other warbands


    The models for it all a lot cheaper than GW games, they have fantastic plastic box sets of you enjoy the modeling aspect a lot too

    You only need like ten guys per warband, so it’s not a large financial commitment


    10/10 recommend, they have a sci fi version coming out in spring also called Stargrave

    Not really. You can use a map on the table if you like. Also you can put little figures on that map to represent your characters. This is just up to the group.
    You need books and dice to play the game. It does help to have the figures. You can paint your figures and have all kinds of cool stuff to augment the game.

    WoW is based on D&D but has become much different.
    D&D mostly tends to be more fun and interesting.
