Cuts and political games

This weeks #BoardGameHour topics are:


This week and was moving house. I was moving in with my partner and her place is smaller than mine. I have taken pretty much all of my board games but today I had to get rid of some really old ones. It was not easy to have to cut games I grow up with. Some had to go into storage, some I took out components that I can use for designing and binned the other bits, others will go to charity.

Having to do this made me think about cuts and this topic was born

Political games

I love politics and I love board games... Do these two worlds collide enough? Not in my game collection. I'd love to play games about running elections, but am not aware of ones that would give me a really good feel (I have ran real life election campaigns so I'm very aware of the feel I want)

I hope we can have a nice chat about board games and politics without any fake news. P.S don't ask me about how I feel about Trump or Brexit or I will tell you hahahahhahah

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!
