Not so much actual play as a report of my first foray. 🙂

So, my wife and I found some time between cooking tasks to have a running game of Dungeon World throughout the evening. Here’s my takeaway:
• It’s certainly different from more conventional methods. I liked how freeform it was (the whole conversation thing).
• Despite its differences, the story overall didn’t play out differently, and if anything was a little clumsier, but I chalk that up to my inexperience.
• Related to the point above, the fights didn’t go any faster than they do in other systems, which isn’t exactly a negative, just something I anticipated going in.
• I got imagination fatigue with all of the 7-9 results that I had to come up with a challenge for.
In all, we had fun, and I found some stealable mechanics :). I’d like to try it again with some more experienced players before I make a final judgement, but right now I’m not sure it’s my game.
