Filler Games

This week our main #BoardGameHour topic is all about "filler" games. By this I mean games that last under and hour, but you may have different views on this word. Is it a good word to use? We will find out on Monday

Our side topic is the use of senses in tabletop gaming.. So Sight, Smell, Taste, Hearing and Touch. Are any of them under uses I ask?

Hope you enjoy these questions and the discussions they create.
Monday 7th March 2016 questions are:

Q1: Do you like the term "Filler game" to describe games that last under an hour?
Q2: Of the board games you own roughly what percentage how many last under 1 hour? Do you want more / less?
Q3: When do you generally play "filler" games? Is it at the start and the end of gaming nights?
Q4: What makes a good "filler" game to you?
Q5: You have 1 hour and 3 players, what do you play and why?
Q6: What are your top 3 short (under an hour / Filler) games?
Q7: Are there any Filler games you wont play? Why?
Q8: What tips would you give to someone wanting to design a filler game?
Q9: Side Topic: Senses… Are there any board games that involve senses other than sight (reading)?
Q10: Are smell, taste, hearing and touch something that could be used in games more?
Q11: If you where going to design a game using a sense what would it be about?
Q12: Will the integration of digital into board games mean more senses will be involved? 
Q13: Time is up for this week.. See you next time?

Hope you can make it!

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)
