Award Winning Games

Our two topics for this week are "Award Winning Games" and "Push Your Luck Games".

There are a number of awards in the board game world, but i'd like to hear your views on them. Are the amount of awards correct and are we rewarding the right stuff? For me, there are lots of awards for best game, but I'd like to see awards about other aspects of board gaming (but its about your views no mine).

Push your luck is a mechanism that could be attached to many games. I guess lots of people will automatically think about dice rolling when I say push your luck, but is there much more to it than that?

Hope you enjoy the board game chat this week :0)

Your questions will be:

Q1: Do you know how many of the board games you own which are award winning?
Q2: Have you ever bought a game based on it having won an award?
Q3: Which is the biggest award a board game can win in your opinion? How much attention do you pay to it?
Q4: Are you happy with the amount and type of awards there are in board gaming? Want more? Less? Different?
Q5: If you could give an award to one board game what would it be and why?
Q6: If you could give an award to one person in board gaming what would it be and why?
Q7: How would you describe the "push your luck" mechanisms, what's the heart of this mechanic?
Q8: How often do you play game with push your luck in them? What was the last one?
Q9: What do you like about games with a push your luck mechanism?
Q10: What don't you like about games with a push your luck mechanism?
Q11: What are your favourite "push your luck" games?
Q12: If you wanted to introduce somone to board gaming with a push your luck game, which would you choose?

#BoardGameHour is simply an hour long twitter chat about board games (tabletop games). To join in all you have to do is be on twitter that the right time and add #BoardGameHour to your tweets so everyone can see what you are saying :0) If you can't make the first installment, I now run a #2ndTurn to try and let more people take part.

Making it easier to take part in!

I generally used to 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!
