Dungeons and Dragons anyone?

Hello EF people,

My husband has been playing D&D for 20 years I think (we know he is a geek so don't bother pointing it out ). I moved to Basel 1 month ago but hubby will be coming in the end of August.
Would anyone be interested in joining a D&D gaming group to get together once every two weeks or once every month, our place (@Basel).

Thanks!

Angela

I DO NOT LIVE IN BASEL ANYMORE AND WE ARE NOT HOLDING D&d GAMES ANYMORE PLEASE STOP CONTACTING ME.

You are confusing the term "geek" with "nerd" methinks.

I do however wish him luck, though I can't forsee much enthusiasm on EF for it.

Re: Dungeons and Dragons anyone?

He does know about World of Warcraft? Or is he still playing games on his ZX Spectrum?

Re: Dungeons and Dragons anyone?

People still play D&D?! Wow. Unless there's live-action and skimpy clothing, I'll stick to video games.

Definitely confusing 'nerd' with 'geek'.

You can't beat dice based (A)D&D with a good Dungeon Master - it wipes the floor with any computer version such as WOW or Second Life or whatever breed you wish. There is more expression, interaction and dare I say it human contact with genuine Dungeon and Dragons role playing. I used to love it though haven't played for several years.

Re: Dungeons and Dragons anyone?

Ok Ok I should have written nerd but chose geek (sounds more elegant ).
We both play World of Warcraft but he still used to get together with his friends every 2-3 weeks for a good ol' D&D game in the Netherlands.
I did not join cause my Dutch is not that good, it usually turned to be quite a fun night with friends and a few drinks.
Still if anyone would like to join please PM

Re: Dungeons and Dragons anyone?

I do wonder if my D&D boxes are still in my parents' basement. The red box and the blue box. Although a massive geek, I wasn't nerdy enough to truly become obsessed with it. Video games took over.

As MikeB mentioned, the direct human interaction is nice, as with board games. However, with the internet, it is more complex and fun to interact with more people, especially those you don't know.

Why, because people would have to actually leave their computer and their home to meet people in person?

I'm sure there are a few lurkers.

If it were in Zurich and there were the promise of some goth-style enchantresses, I'd drop by for sure.

Do you realise that there are probably a minimum of 3 billion men who have been waiting all their life to meet a bonafide Nerd Queen who actually wants to play WoW and D&D? Seriously, you are probably worth more in equivalent monetary terms to the drooling slobbery nerd crowd out there than Miss World is to other men. You are quite possible nearly a deity in this respect.

Well to be fair, D&D roleplaying does involve getting out and meeting people*.

*of various character classes.

Sorry HashBrown can't promise any of that. Interestingly there were not many girls in his D&D group in NL, only 2

It is, until in the middle of a key battle the Level 16 Magician you befriended two weeks ago for this mission asks you whether your wearing any underwear.

Just out of curiosity, have any of you played dikuMUD ever ? I was addicted to that at University to a level that would have put your local smack addict to shame.

its one of the first on line multiplayer Multi User Dungeons. The bridge if you like between AD&D and then through MUD's then into the graphical Multi User Environements you see today. dikuMUD is just a variation there were many, but diku was one of the originals.
