Cuteness and Spies

In honor of the Easter bunny our next #BoardGameHour will have topic all about cute board games.

We will mainly be dealing with the standard world wide defination of attractive in a pretty or endearing way, but some questions relate to the more American use of clever or cunning, especially in a self-seeking or superficial way. "she had a real cute idea"

Our side topic is in stark contrast and is about the shady world of spy themed games..

Hope you enjoy these questions and the discussions they create.
Monday 28st March 2016 questions are:

Q1: Do you prefer cute artwork or realistic artwork on board games as a rule?
Q2: Which games have the cutest components? 
Q3: Who / what is the cutest character in a board game?
Q4: Small is often cute, but are there any small games that have a bite to them?
Q5: Does a game looking cute make you feel its aimed at kids? Why?
Q6: Are there any cute (smart / cunning) mechanisms you would like to see more of?
Q7: Are there any cute themes you think would make a good game?
Q8: If you could ban one thing in board games considered cute, what would it be?
Q9: Side Topic: What do you like about Spy/espionage themes?
Q10: What don't you like about Spy/espionage themed games?
Q11: What are your favourite games with a Spy/espionage theme?
Q12: What advice would you give to a designer wanted to make a Spy/espionage game?

BTW We are back to normal times!

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
