Publishers and Gifts

Our main topic form Mondays #BoardGameHour twitter chat is about the people behind the meeples- Publishers. It seems like every time I look at my twitter account I have been followed by a new board game publisher (or at least one I have never heard of before.)

I thought it was about time we talked about what we want from our publishers. With so many games coming out every week, lets tell publishers what they need to do to get our attention :0)

Our side topic, will be "board games as gifts". We are heading toward the holiday season (I call it Christmas because I'm British, but I understand not everyone takes part, so... you know... Got to be sensitive)

Monday 7th Dec's questions are here:

Q1: Roughly how many board game publishers do you know off the top of your head?
Q2: Are there any publishers you are a fan of? Who? Why?
Q3: What makes for a good board game publisher? 
Q4: Who are some "Hidden Gem" publishers you think don't get enough attention?
Q5: Are there any publishers you would never buy from? Why?
Q6: Do you get news from any publishers what for does it take?
Q7: Are there any publishers you feel are extra good with customer service?
Q8: Are you more likely to buy a game because of who designed or published it?
Q9: What tips would you give to someone wanting to publish board games?
Q10: Side Topic: Board Games as gifts, do you give them? Who to?
Q11: What game would you give to someone to introduce them to modern gaming?
Q12: Would you like some board games as a gift? Which ones?

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)
