Consumption & Integrated theme

It is our last week of being sponsored by the new rule teaching app Dized. This week I asked for topics from the community. I got a few great request and have gone with two very different topics.

First we will start with Consumption, which will included games about food and drink. What designers and publishers you can't consume enough of and also how many new games you consume.

After that we will be talking about integrated themes. What I mean by this is how well games link there theme and mechanics. If a game has a really good integrated theme, the rules are easier to understand and the game is more fun. Is it something you look out for in games? How can designers integrated themes better?

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)

#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 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!
