MAIN TOPIC
Our main topic for this weeks BoardGameHour is History based themes... This could be a wide topic, but also an interesting area of board gaming :0)

SIDE TOPIC
I love all the seasons (and in fact Seasons the game) for different reasons. I love the colors of Autumn and the cold of winter. Our side topic is board games set in winter.

Making it easier to take part in!

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.


Hope you can make it!
