Modular & Cyber Punk

Our two topics this week are:

Modular Games (employing or involving a module or modules as the basis of design or construction)

I love game with modular elements. I always get excited about the possibilities of a modular board. One of my favourite mechanisms is the modular race creation in Small World. I am not so sure about modular rules, because I sometimes feel like the designer has not bothered to make a decision / has not finished the design. Lets hear your views during #BoardGameHour later

Cyber Punk themed games (a genre of science fiction set in a lawless subculture of an oppressive society dominated by computer technology.)

This is another theme I really want to see more of. To me it feels like a down and dirty version of traditional sci-fi. I don't have a huge amount of games with this theme and I'm not sure why? Maybe we will find out later. 

Hope you enjoy the board game chat :0)

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
Monday 7pm GMT - UK time
Monday 8pm CET - Germany
Tuesday 3am AWST - Western Australia
Tue 5am AEST - Eastern Australia

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!
