Survival games

Recently when not playing board games I have been getting my teeth into strategy computer games. They are the closest thing to board gaming I can get when on my own (cause I feel they serve me better than solo playing a board game). Two I have really enjoyed lately are Rimworld and This War of Mine (soon to be a board game by the way). Both are survival games. This got me thinking about how much I like the survival theme, so I thought we could have a little chat about it.

Our side topic, is about how I can improve #BoardGameHour for you. I have had some very testing times recently and I feel that if I'm going to keep doing something in my life, that it should be as good as I can make it. I run #BoardGameHour ever week for you, so would love to hear your thoughts on it's direction.

Hope you enjoy the chat

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!
