Health and Illness

MAIN TOPIC
Over the last few days my son has been sick. This has had two effects on #BoardGameHour. First it meant that I did not get the questions up early (sorry) and second that our topic is going to be connected to my lack of sleep etc... So today's topic will be "Health and illness" board games.

SIDE TOPIC
Being from the UK it has not gone unnoticed by me that the world is following what could be a world shaping election with is about to happen. I of course refer to the 2nd round of the presidential election in Bulgaria. With this in mind our side topic will be voting in board games

Hope you enjoy the board game chat :0)

Monday 7th November 2016 questions are:

Q1: Is health / illness / viruses etc a theme at interests you as a rule? Why?

Time zones are back to normal!

The US have now changed away for summer time just like Europe so we are back to standard times again :0)

This weeks #BoardGameHour will take place at:

11pm PST - USA west coast  
2pm EST - 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!
