Game Time: The best stories about games, culture, and community (Feb 27 – Mar 5)
With the help of my graduate assistant Sammi Kirby, each week I’ll pull together stories about games, culture, and the art and design of communities. Where Dungeons & Dreamers: A story of how computer games created a global community ends, this blog begins. If we’ve missed a story, let us know. Or share you’re story with us in the comments.
If you’re wondering where the summaries are for these stories, the answer is simple: The minions are on Spring Break, and thus enjoying life outside of graduate school. They will return next week…as will the summaries.
