Pirates and treasure

This week our main #BoardGameHour topic is all about pirate themed board games. So hoist your main brace, swab your decks and put on your best Bristol accent...

Our side topic is about hidden treasure.. This sounds like it ties in but really its a completely different subject ;0)

Hope you enjoy these questions and the discussions they create.
Monday 21st March 2016 questions are:

Q1: Does a pirate theme on a game excite you?
Q2: What do you expect from a "pirate" themed game?
Q3: Are there any games with a pirate theme that don't feel like one when played?
Q4: Would you play a modern day pirate themed game? Is historic theft / murder different? How?
Q5: Are there any games you would like to see re-theme with a pirate skin?
Q6: What do you like about the pirate theme when is comes to board games?
Q7: What don't you like about the pirate theme when it comes to board games?
Q8: What are your top 3 pirate games?
Q9: What tips would you give to someone who wanted to design a pirate game?
Q10: Side Topic: Hidden Treasure! Who is your favourite new/small publisher?
Q11: What game will I have never heard of but should check out?
Q12: If you could bury one game and never have to see it again which would it be?


Due to the genetic lottery I was born in the UK, that combined with me being a single parent with a young son, means I need to stick to the same time slot each week (based on UK time). Unfortunately the NWO have not seen fit to sort out when we all shift into summer time. The US (most of it anyway) have changed and we have not. As such for one more week the start times are:
12am (L.A)
3pm (New York)
7pm (UK)
8pm (Germany)

Hope you can make it!

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:

12am (L.A)
3pm (New York)
7pm (UK)
8pm (Germany)
