200th #BoardGameHour

Our next chat will be the 200th I have ran! I love board games and I wanted to be able to chat with people about them on Twitter. I couldn't find any way to do that easily, so all those years ago, I started #Boardgamehour.

I suspected it would never take off, but after only a few weeks we were trending world wide. Everything has calmed down since those heady days, but I still am very proud of the community that takes part every week.

I love this weekly event, but it has not always been easy finding the time to run #BoardGameHour so I am using this milestone to think about if I want to keep it up. I'd love to hear your feedback about if #BoardGameHour in its current format is serving a purpose.

I needed to think of topics to match the occasion, so I am going with "Celebrations" and "Endings". I genuinely hope you have enjoyed my little part of the internet at some point over the last 200 #BoardGameHours . I know I have enjoyed reading your posts and have learnt so much about board gaming because of this weekly event.

If you have an question or topics 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)

Making it easier to take part in!

I recommend using apps or websites to make the Twitter chat easier to follow. Here are a couple to try: 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!
