Just use #BoardGameHour to join in

See you there!

If Nurph is still down!

I generally use Nurph to host http://nurph.com/BoardGameHour (providing its working) but every now and then it goes down and causes problems.

If this happens, I recommend using http://twubs.com/boardgamehour or http://tweetchat.com/room/boardgamehour or Tweet Deck or Hootsuite to follow the hashtag chat. Of course you can just use twitter but sometimes the amount of #boardgamehour tweets can be challenging to keep up with.

What ever you use, try to ensure you add #BoardGameHour to your tweets so everyone can see what you are saying :0)

See you at:

Hope you can make it!
