Ok, I used to play a hybrid of the original Advanced Dungeons and Dragons, and Advanced Dungeons and Dragons Second Edition.

We used to have a blast. I still have all my books to. Soooo many books.

Anyways, I see they changed how you play D&D nowadays.

Dungeon tiles and miniatures?
No more playing the game in your imagination?
Sounds like they've turned an iconic RPG, into a boardgame.
Monopoly with swords if you will.

Actually, they did make a D&D theme Clue edition. I'm almost ashamed to admit that I own one...

That's all good for Warhammer (yes, I know they don't use dungeon tiles), but I don't know if I care for that in Role Playing. Sounds... restricting.

I've picked up a bunch of the 3.5 books, and some miniatures even. I can't shake the feeling though, that the whole reason behind this shift to playing with these little statues is to give Hasbro more stuff to sell!

I also picked up the module: Return to the Temple of Element Evil awhile back - I really don't see how you could finance getting enough minatures and tiles to play that massive module!

Guess I'll probably never know until the World of Warcraft servers shut down. (That's where all my role playing buddies have gone!)

Any thoughts on D&D 3.5?
Or this 'shift' to miniature play?
