Halloween Games

This week we are doing a Halloween special! Why is this Mondays #BoardGameHour twitter chat about games that go bump in the night and not one closer to the time?

Well the simple answer is that over past years I have thought, "oohhh that sounds like the perfect game to play tomorrow, aaahhh I can't get it in time" and then I forget. This way we can all take actions based on the chat if we want too :0)

There is no side topic this week cause Halloween has loads of things to cover.

Monday 19th Oct 2015 questions are:

Q1: What emotions / feelings are you looking for a game to invoke at Halloween?
Q2: What tips would you give for improving atmosphere for Halloween gaming?
Q3: Which games would you recommend for young (under 12) kids at Halloween?
Q4: Do you think its possible to make a truly scary board game?
Q5: What themes would you like to see used for a new Halloween style game?
Q6: Do you use sound effects to enhance your Halloween games? Where do you source them?
Q7: Which games would you recommend for teenagers at Halloween?
Q8: Are there a set of mechanisms that work best for Halloween type games?
Q9: Which games would you recommend for adults at Halloween?
Q10: What advice would you give to publishers about making Halloween type games?
Q11: What advice would you give to someone running a games night for Halloween?
Q12: Do you have any good memories of Halloween board gaming?

Don't be scared to join in... :0)

Making #boardgamehour easier!

To make this live Twitter discussion easier, I have made a room on Nurph.com which we can all use. All you have to do is make sure you are logged into Twitter then go to http://nurph.com/BoardGameHour/chats and log in, using your Twitter account. You don't have to use this, everything will be the same as normal, but if you do us Nurph, it acts like a chat room for twitter and add the Hashtag automatically :0)

For one hour every week, it's time to talk nothing but board games. #boardgamehour happens across the western world Every Monday - start times are:

11am (L.A)
2pm (New York)
