Tile placement and maths

This weekend I introduced my son to Carcassone. He is only young and so every time we play a game it's his first time. My partner has been asking to play Isle of Skye for a couple of weeks, but each time I have been a little to tired to get it out. Today we wanted to play a game but I didn't feel my boy would be able to get his head around valuing the tiles for the bidding part of Isle of Skye so we start him out in tile placement with Carcassone. This seems like the right move and he enjoyed it.
This is why our first topic is tile placement games.

I love maths, but after a long day at work some games are a little to intense from a mathematics position. This can be working out optimum moves but more often its book keeping. I'd love to hear where you sit when it comes to maths in board game.

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: 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!
