Giants and The Rondel Mechanism

Our topics today are big and round!

Who doesn't love a story with a giant in it? Clearly the answer is nobody, but do you like board games with giants in them? Are there enough? Will this be the biggest board game topic in years?

If you take part in #BoardGameHour, you must be a smart (and probably physically attractive person) but have you heard of the Rondel Mechanism? If you have, come and chat about it... If you have not, come along and enter a world of round decision making :0)

Hope you enjoy the board game chat :0)

Giants and The Rondel Mechanism Questions Will Include:
  • Who are the "Giants" of the board gaming world in your eyes?
  • Which are the best board / card games about being a Giant?
  • What tips would you give to a designer working on a Giant themed game?
  • How would you describe the Rondel Mechanism to gamers who have not heard of it?
  • What is your favorite game with a Rondel as the main mechanism? Why is it good?
If you have a question you would like me to ask the board game community, drop me a tweet  @BoardGameHour before we start and I'll see if I can add it in :0) 

Come and join in our chat

#BoardGameHour is simply an hour long twitter chat all about board games (tabletop games). To join in all you have to do is be on twitter and add #BoardGameHour to your tweets so everyone can see what you are saying :0)

#BoardGameHour Start Time
Monday 11am PST - USA west coast time
Monday 2pm EST - USA east coast time

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!
