Games that last

Our main topic for Mondays #BoardGameHour twitter chat is about games that stand the test of time. Not many games can claim to have truly stuck around, but some can for sure!

Ticket to ride is over 10 years and Settlers has been around for 20 years. Do games like this still get played? Are they as good as games that came out this year? Do we need to keep older games at all? Take part on Monday to discuss!

Our side topic is linked, it is about variety in games. I have kept the questions on this part very open cause I want to see where people go with it :0)

Q1: Do you ever get rid of games from your collection? Why? How?

What is #Boardgamehour

#boardgamehour takes place on twitter once a week. It's a virtual hangout for people who either love board games or want to know more about the hobby.

So the big question is how does #boardgamehour work?

It's simple, to join in all you need to do is add the #boardgamehour hash-tag to your tweets, during the hour. To see what everyone else is saying just search for #boardgamehour!

Making #boardgamehour easier!

To make this live Twitter discussion easier, I have made a room on which we can all use. All you have to do is make sure you are logged into Twitter then go to 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)
7pm (UK)
8pm (Germany)
