I love playing D&amp;D, but the games are long, and finding people that aren’t so busy that they can’t play these long campaigns for hours at a time, weeks in a row... well, that’s difficult.</p> Thu, 10 Apr 2014 17:30:00 +0000 Samuel McConnell 32739 at http://kmuw.org Your Move: Bringing D&D Down To A Manageable Size Your Move: A 'Metal Gear' Teaser http://kmuw.org/post/your-move-metal-gear-teaser <p></p><p>I’ve been a fan of the <em>Metal Gear Solid</em> series since the first one in 1998. Since then, I’ve played them all and followed the story of the two main protagonists, both code-named "Snake."</p><p>The latest, <em>Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, </em>was released last week.</p> Thu, 27 Mar 2014 17:30:00 +0000 Samuel McConnell 32099 at http://kmuw.org Your Move: A 'Metal Gear' Teaser Show Off Your Knowledge In 'QuizUp' http://kmuw.org/post/show-your-knowledge-quizup <p>I don’t play many games on my smartphone. I don’t normally want to sacrifice the battery life, especially if I have a dedicated gaming portable like my Nintendo 3DS with me. But sometimes, smartphone games grab me, especially if they play quick and have a social aspect to them.</p> Thu, 13 Mar 2014 17:30:00 +0000 Samuel McConnell 31431 at http://kmuw.org Show Off Your Knowledge In 'QuizUp' Your Move: Short Stories Meet Beautiful Artwork in 'Dixit' http://kmuw.org/post/your-move-short-stories-meet-beautiful-artwork-dixit <p></p><p>Last week, I asked a friend to introduce me to some lesser-known games that don’t take very long to play. He immediately pulled out a game called <em>Dixit</em>. When he told me that it’s a game about telling short stories, I didn’t really understand how short he meant.</p> Thu, 27 Feb 2014 18:30:00 +0000 Samuel McConnell 30783 at http://kmuw.org Your Move: Short Stories Meet Beautiful Artwork in 'Dixit' Your Move: A Gaming Table Like You've Never Seen Before http://kmuw.org/post/your-move-gaming-table-youve-never-seen <p></p><p>Normally, furniture isn’t something I’d be talking much about on a segment dedicated to gaming. But <em>where</em> you play can be just as important as <em>what</em> you play.

I love playing them, but it’s hard to get my friends interested in playing.</p> Thu, 30 Jan 2014 18:30:00 +0000 Samuel McConnell 29543 at http://kmuw.org Your Move: Carcassonne and 'Gateway Games' Your Move: New 'Zelda' Removes The Tedium, Keeps The Fun http://kmuw.org/post/your-move-new-zelda-removes-tedium-keeps-fun <p></p><p></p><p>Nintendo’s <em>The Legend of Zelda</em> series is practically mythical at this point.

The game <em>Fluxx</em>, on the other hand, has exactly two rules: draw one card, and play one card. That is, until you actually start playing cards.

Perhaps it is for this reason that both the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4, which have been out for less than a month, have both already outsold the Wii U. Now a game has come out, though, that makes the Wii U worth picking up.</p> Thu, 05 Dec 2013 18:30:00 +0000 Samuel McConnell 27205 at http://kmuw.org Your Move: Mario's Back, And He's Beautiful
