Killer Games

Happy Halloween everyone... A couple of weeks ago we covered spooky games, so that you had time to get your hands on any that you liked the sound of. With today being All Hallows Eve I wanted to do a fitting topic without repeating our Halloween chat.

So today's topic will be "Killer Games". We will chat about games that have slayed other games. What board games have left your collection because another game came in and killed them?

To keep on theme, as a side topic we will cover player elimination in games.

Hope you enjoy the terrifying board game chat :0)

Q4: What games do you feel have been "killed" (replaced) by newer games?
Q5: Are there any games you feel are un-killable (irreplaceable) ?

Time Zones Warning!

The UK (where I am based) has left summer time now and moved back into GMT which means for a week or so the timings in the USA will be off by an hour.

This weeks #BoardGameHour will take place at:

12pm PDT - USA west coast  
3pm EDT - USA east coast
7pm GMT - UK
8pm CET - Germany


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:

11am (L.A)
2pm (New York)
7pm (UK)
8pm (Germany)

Hope you can make it!
