Betting / gambling

Image result for gambling
One of the oldest forms of entertainment known to mankind is gamble / betting. Most people just love to try and predict the outcome of something unpredictable. However, I personally am not aware of a lot of board games that use this mechanism. Push your luck is a form of gambling and that features quite often but put gambling out outcomes seem to register less often. Do you agree? Let me know later :0)

I love Theme park computer games (and can't wait to get my teeth into Planet Coaster) so was wondering if I can get the same enjoyment out of my main hobby of board games. So our side topic is theme park board games.

Hope you enjoy the board game chat :0)

Making it easier to take part in!

I generally use Nurph to host (providing its working) but every now and then it goes down and causes problems.

If this happens, I recommend using or 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.

Hope you can make it!
