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: 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.

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.

One of those games, <em>Story War</em>, is finally available.

You can play this with your friends, but I should caution that they probably won’t be your friends during the game.
