Myths and Legends

We have one topic this week because it is quite wide ranging, and that is Myths and Legends.

Define myth

So you can see the topic could go in a number of directions.
Hope you enjoy the board game chat :0)

Some of your Myths and Legends questions will include:

  • What rule do you feel is most widely got wrong because of a myth about it? 
  • What Myth would you like to see a game made about? 
  • Do you have a legendary gaming story you tell people? What's it about? 
  • What are the best games about myths and legends? 
  • If you where to design a game with a myths and legends theme what would it be about? 

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)

Making it easier to take part in!

I generally used to 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!
