Space and Set Collection

I like to give you glimpses into my board gaming life sometimes (cause I like you). Today I need to tell you about a topic that leads to some disharmony in my house. Space, the final frontier! It's a theme that when I was young I didn't really enjoy but as I have aged have come to love. I love the infinite possibilities, I love the lack of restrictions and I love the epic-ness that can come from a good sci-fi space opera.

Why does this topic cause unrest in my home then? Well because my partner really doesn't like the theme at all. Its a massive blockade for her. So games that I really enjoy like Cosmic Encounters, Battlestar Galactica and Eminent Domain are hard to get to the table. So it's with a heavy heart that I bring you a topic that is close to my heart but so distant from my table... Space games.

Our other topic is one that I am not in love with but feel can add something to some games. That is Set Collecting. I don't feel there is enough to the mechanic to make it the only part of a game, but as a part of a whole it carries its own. Do you agree with me? Come and join in later to see what other people think too.

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 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!
