Hello there fellow time traveler! We’re thrilled to tell you more about our PlayTime Twitch streams.
In these streams, we will ask the BIG questions about play and games, such as “What is your most cherished in-game item?”, “What is the best trip you have ever had in a game?” or “What is your favourite house-rule?”
Together with you, we may even come up with some great answers to these great questions of our playtime! So, join the chat or send us your answers before the stream using the form below.
Check the schedule for the upcoming weeks below, including games and suggested reading below.
We hope to see you every other Friday at 15:00 CE(S)T live on Twitch for some PlayTime!
