Crowd Funding and Artwork

This week we have two topics that are very close to my heart! You will see why below:

Crowd Funded Games

Crowd funding board games is part of my day to day life. Some of you may know that I offer marketing services and advice to board game companies through my company Wilderland Campaigns. This more often than not involves Kickstarter. Not only that but I am also someone who likes to put spare cash into interesting Kickstarter board games. Crowd funding has become a big part of the board game world and has changed immensely over the last 5/10 years or so.  Is Kickstarter a force for good in the gaming world? Would you publish a game via crowd funding? I look forward to reading your answers on Monday.

Artwork in games

I am a graphic designer and have an eye for art, but would never claim to be an artist. Despite that Artwork in games is so important for me. I love games that look great and really struggle to get into games that are not aesthetically pleasing to me.  What artists do you like? How important is artwork in board games?

I love to hear your views on these subjects.

Hope you enjoy the #BoardGameHour chat later :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 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!
