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!

Q1: How much do you enjoy buying board games? Relative to playing them?

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 Nurph.com which we can all use. All you have to do is make sure you are logged into Twitter then go tohttp://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)
