Serious Play

Serious Play is an interdisciplinary group at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee that provides graduate students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to critically engage and actively research games, play, and related cultural formations. Many of our current efforts are focused on Twitch @

Below are two that I am currently most involved with:

On Couch Surfing, I play local, co-op video games with a variety of guests -- some with lots of gaming experience, some with not-so-much -- to investigate the ways games ask players to relate to one another.

Coffee Break is an hour-long stream where I'm sometimes joined by other members of Serious Play for wide-ranging conversations while I play a game, typically as part of a monthly theme. Other times, it's just me playing a game and talking about it.
