For everybody. What is that one miniature/card/board game that you wish people still played.

For me it is mageknight. The whole fantasy meet steampunk thing got me and the origional version of the game was endlessly enjoyable. The 2.0 system killed it in record time sadly.

Spacehulk. Unquestionably.



I'd also like to play more BattleTech. It's a quality game and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys 40k but wants more detail.

I play Battletech. If you want to give the game system a try go to mekwars.org download the java client and you can play the game over the computer.

Vor: The Maelstrom.

It was a tabletop miniature game like 40k, but worked off of a D10 system instead of using D6's. I honestly think it could have been one of the top games if the company owning it hadn't overextended itself. One of the coolest things about it was that it had rules in the main book for creating your own race/army

I would probably be playing it as my primary game instead of fantasy right now if it was around.

it doesnt look like it will ever come back though, parts of the game are owned by 3 different people/companies who wont get together.

I really wish that more people played BlueMax/CanvasEagles. It's somewhat akin to Aeronautica Imperialis, but takes place in WW1 and uses a slightly better system than the 'cards' for movement.
Wouldn't mind seeing more BFG played around here either. Eh-hem!!
CAV was good too.
And Warmaster.
the warhammer naval game was good too. Can't remember the name at the moment.

and finally: WH40K THE WAY IT WAS MEANT TO BE PLAYED!

Hmm... A tough decision. Iwould choose Batllefleet Gothic if it counts (I know it is still available, but theres no support/official rulings/new models for it.)

Or Heroquest, i'm a big fan of Heroquest.

Blood Bowl. Still my favorite game ever produced.
And still one of the most popular tabletop games in the world. I wouldn't exactly call it "dead", considering how enormous of a fan-base it has.

Nor would I call BFG, Necromunda, Warmaster, Epic, Mordheim or Inquisitor dead either. Just unsupported. They are still great fun and certainly not impossible to get your hands on.

For me, I'd really would like to try Man-o-War. Space Hulk is soon to be revamped (yayz) so I'm not thinking of that anymore.

I'd also really like to play Warzone, based on the Mutant-setting. A friend has shown me some of the rules, background and we have played the boardgame "The Siege of the Citadel" (think it's called that in English) and it looks like a really cool game. Models are very 90s though and getting increasingly harder to get your hands on.

I liked Epic before GW pretty much forgot about it, I wouldn't mind seeing it restored to some extent.

I want all specialist games to be brought back into the line light, and not just be a cash cow.
Agreed!
Most of the Specialist games caters to everything a hobbyist could ever need (roleplaying with miniatures, giant spaceships, giant armies, fantasy football etc.), but GW completely forgets to realise what an important thing these games are!! Of course, some games like BB are still going strong (and will probably do that for a long time!!), but some are fading. I just hope GW will realise how important those games are before it's too late!

I can see Blood Bowl being a great game to have in Games Workshops, as the ambience it creates is brilliant. However, it also generates almost zero income.

I'm not sure what the situation was in your region, but the problem with Vor: The Maelstrom in my home town was that it was hugely popular... but they couldn't get the models to the stores fast enough. There were only a couple guys with enough miniatures to have a complete army and after a while people stopped asking if the models were coming in and by the time they finally did hit the shelves everyone had moved on to 40k again.

Now, for my personal game that I wish would come back? Shadowrun: The CCG. It was an extremely well designed game that was very popular... unfortunately it was only popular with the Shadowrun RPG crowd and never picked picked up a lot of players outside of people who were already familiar with the RPG.
