In my German class this evening we were talking about what activities we do at certain hours of the day. One guy in my class announced that at 11:30pm, he is surfing the net. This got me to wondering if he plays World of Warcraft, cause I wonder these things.
On the walk home from class when my brain was still in German mode. I was thinking about how I would ask someone if they played WOW and what I would say if someone asked me the same thing. Therefore I came up with the dialogue below;
Q: Spielst du World of Warcraft?
A: Nein, aber ich will World of Warcraft spielen. Ich spiele Dungeons & Dragons.
(Thanks to the guys on Twitter who helped me phrase the question properly cause I couldn’t work out if it would be Spielst du oder Machst du.)
Maybe I might learn German a little quicker if we were talking about nerdy things like WOW and D&D instead of what people are doing on a cruise ship.
Damn, now I want to be able to say my D&D character is a level 3 mage-rogue elf in German… hmm maybe something like Mein D&D charakter ist ein Level drei mage-rogue elf. What are the classes in the German version of D&D?
*It should be noted that one of my workmates wants me to hurry up and learn German so I can join his gaming group.
