Was wondering if anyone could help me out, i'm trying to find the D&D board game which came with a complete (or starter, i honestly have no clue) rulebook/dungeon master guide, character and enemy TILES, a fold out map with a dual side that's completely white grid (for creating your own maps), and a complete set of all the die's needed. Give or take a few extra's. The tiles were small, in black and white, and round, the lay out map was actually several different maps i believe (a whole sheet with 2 or 3 different dungeons on it) also in black/grey/ and white. Can anyone help me out? I remember getting it a WHILE ago so it could be an old edition like 3 or 3.5 but i'm not sure.
Ya know, you didn't even have to reply, i mean, if i got no replies i would've been forced to use it anyway, but as unreliable as google is, i was forced to ask here first.
There's a board game?
I suspect he means the pen&paper version, because it's not an actual board game. There are some elements that can remind of that, though, which he mentions, such as the use of combat tiles, dungeon tiles, as those are almost a necessity, seeing as otherwise it'd be pretty similar to playing chess without the board or pieces.
But you can just look up Wizard of the Coast and see what products they offer, and if they've got a 3.5 starter kit or something. If not, you can just mix their products and get the things you need.
People still do this? (intriguing)
what is this? mmhh....mmhhh... I'll take it!

Errr, yea?! Me and my friend play D&D online through a program that's set up like the board game and uses the core rules, although i want the actual Board Game so i don't have to rely on just online friends.

There is no "board game." To play DnD all you need is a copy of the core rule books, pencils, some character sheets (you can download these at dndinsider.com) and a table. Oh, and of course a set of dice. You can get the books at any book store and most hobby shops. You can get the dice at pretty much any hobby shop or wizards of the coast store, and possibly at some book stores. Finally, you can also buy optional equipment for the game, such as a dry-erase checkerboard cloth for drawing the dungeons out on, and also small plastic characters to act things out with. You technically don't even need those, you can just draw the grid out and draw in characters if you need to. You should be able to buy the grid and character pieces at any hooby shop or wizards of the coast store.
Hope that helps.
Edit: Basically, check out your local hobby shop and also search and find the nearest Wizards of the Coast store. They are fairly numerous. They would certainly have everything, and the hobby shops would have most things. The 4.0 rules are really quite different from 3.5, and simply a lot of things, but also makes combat more interesting. I like 4.0 better than I did 3.5 and would recommend you go with it.
