About 20 years ago, does that count?

No, but I hope to with my son when he is older.

I play the Warhammer tabletop game, but stopped playing the MMO after the free month. I found it horribly uninteresting. *shrugs* Other than that, I only play the MMOS versions of all the other games listed.

16 Years of Warhammer Fantasy Battles and counting here.

I played the MMO for the free month and then shut 'er down as it was a complete WoWification of the actual Warhammer world and also a complete departure from Mythic's tried tested and true DAoC system.

My Warhammer will continue to remain tabletop-only.

I actually got the Warcraft board game for christmas this year, haven't had a chance to play it yet though. I've also picked up the Mini's and TCG games.

No, I play tabletop based MMO games.

I also still play the tabletop versions. To me, it's still more fun to get together in person and game. It's just not as convenient, especially during the week. 8)

These days, I actually spend more time playing D&D 4E than I do on MMOs. There's no one spamming me or acting like a 5-year-old, and I never have to upgrade my computer. It's pretty great.

The WoW card game does sound kind of fun, but I hate collectible games.

The most likely MMO-to-tabletop game I might consider is EQ. I do have a lingering affection for the world of Norrath!

I buy/collect the D&D miniatures, but I don't "play" with them. The best bit of the whole thing is actually opening the box to see what you got.

I'm obsessed with those plastic egg toy-dispensing machines too.

I don't play any tabletop games that are based on MMORPGS.

However, I do play some tabletop / paper-and-pencil games that some MMORPGs have been based on. As entertaining as some MMORPGs are, simply nothing beats sitting down and playing a real RPG paper-and-pencil game.

I make board games that are based on my experiences in MMOG's. Does that count?

I played the Everquest pen and paper game. I actually quite liked it, perhaps because I came from a D&D background. There was something special about having a DM's control over the world.

To me, Everquest will always be the big sprawling pre-PoP game that you could run across for hours and see only a fraction of the content. When I was DM, it was like going back to that world of awe and wonder. Half my players were new to the world and it was nice to be able to introduce my non-gamer friends to Norrath.

I am too a Warhammer miniature player and I HATE the MMO Mythic made out of it.

Terrible, they broke the complete backbone of Warhammer Table Top lore and playing style.

The TT game is all about creating Armies with each their own proper identities. I could fill complete days with tuning my armies and reading the Army books.

Mythic destroyed the army identities and tried to copy Wow with a dead duck. Even the classes don't resemble the Table Top.

Since then I didn't touch my Armies. Every time I look at them I sadly think about the two games that destroyed this beautiful, colorful lore: Mark of Chaos (a disaster) and Borehammer (plain unpolished and ugly as a RPG).

Games Workshop should stop selling out its franchises, for such games will even hurt the most beautiful set of miniatures rules ever written.

I agree that GW should just stick to miniature games, but they are just as money hungry (if not more) than your average corporation and will sell their IP rights to anyone with a big enough pay cheque, especially these days when their stock is getting hammered etc. This is why you see low-quality and incencere products like the majority of the Black Library novels and, the ultimate Warhammer travesty: WAR.

I have dabbled in multiple editions of D&D through both traditional and digital venues, and I also played the WoW TCG for a brief stint when it first came out. Stopped playing that around the time the Onyxia raid deck dropped.
