IM looking for a game to play that can be played with 2 or more players. I'd like a game that you can buy booster packs for the miniatures, because I love opening booster packs. I also prefer fanasty to sci fi, but can consider anything. I am not interested in heroclix, not because of gameplay style, just because I dont want to use heros. Thanks in advance!

This list only references CMG's, so games like X-Wing won't be on it since the ships don't come in random booster packs.

OOP but can be found quite cheaply. No heroes, just villains.

Also OOP but can be found for cheap. Especially the first couple of sets. Only 2-player though.

Same as above - OOP and can be found for cheap. Giant robots, tanks and troops, what's not to like?

Planes and characters. OOP but many sets can be found reasonably. Did NOT come in random boosters though.

MKD was from the same company that did/does Heroclix so the rules are somewhat similar. No superheroes, but it covers pretty much every fantasy angle you can think of: knights, elves, dwarves, trolls, dragons, zombies, vampires, skeletons, orcs, etc.

It's been OOP for several years but boosters and bulk collections are still fairly easy to get.

The system is set up for player vs. player, but it's incredibly modular and takes almost no effort at all to make it a straight coop, a players vs. DM game, or even solitaire.

For me it is Mage Knight. I still have all my figs (but unfortuantly no one to play). The case prices of MK 1.0 (the better rules version imho) are pretty cheap outside of Sinister.

I don't know why this game is rated so poorly outside of Wizkids backlash. The game is solid and the combat click dial makes a very complicated rules set easy enough for 8 year old's to play. I mean that, what other mini game has figures with up to 12 'bars' of diminishing life and power (or a few figs that get stronger with more damage taken), front and back arcs, etc. and you have a very detailed game. Try tracking all that on a sheet of paper...

If you want a solid random draw CMG this is a great one to get into, and the prices on some cases make it a steal. best part is, buy it by the case and your pretty much guaranteed a set of the non-unique figs. I bought cases of everything that came down the line for over two years and sold all the uniques to pay for the case. I never wanted for figures.

OOP, at least temporarily (see page for speculation). Can find boosters at 5 Below for cheap.

The D&D miniatures game. Great minis for RPGs and a decent game on its own.
