Fun fun fun

So, I often see and hear board games described as fun. I know I enjoy them. I also know some people enjoy them for very different reasons to me. So on Monday 29nd of Feb our #boardgamehour Twitter chat is all about what makes board games fun for you :0)

Our side topic, is about EPIC games. The term is used fairly often these days but is it justified? On a recent Dice Tower podcast Tom had a little rant about the terms use, so I thought it would be interesting to hear from you about it.

Be good to see you there!

So 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)
