Sometimes you just have to pick!

One of the most important things in board games is meaningful decisions. On Monday 22nd of Feb our #boardgamehour Twitter chat is all about the decisions you make before and after playing games :0)

Our side topic, is about a type of game that doesn't seem to come up much (apart from with the explosion of Code Names) and that is word game. I expect everything in this section to be spelled perfectly (expect by me)

See you there!

Monday 22nd Feb's #BoardGameHour questions are:

Q1: How do you / your group pick what game to play?
Q2: How does theme/mechanics effect the choosing of the games played?
Q3: How do you pick small things like first player / player colour?
Q4: What is the biggest thing that effects which game you pick to buy?
Q5: If you could pick anyone to play a board game with who would they be & what game?
Q6: Do you pick a strategy early in a game and try to stick with it?
Q7: How do you pick what Kickstarter games to back?
Q8: How do you pick which games to trade / sell?
Q9: Side Topic: Do you own any word games?
Q10: Can word games carry a theme or do they have to be abstract?
Q11: What word games would you recommend people try?
Q12: What tips would you give to someone wanting to design a word game?

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)
