Over time things evolve and get better. Survive of the fittest is all about adapt or die, so which path is board gaming taking?

Personally I think board games have made huge steps forward since the 70's and have the capacity to keep getting better. So many people I have introduced into gaming have fallen in love with a hobby they originally thought was boring.

My tastes as a gamer are always evolving too. The more I teach games the more I want to play games that are easy to learn that have depth as the game goes on!

Literally adding to reality! How could be against it? Well the answer to that is quite a lot of old school gamers. I for one embrace our technological overlords. I can't wait to have board game computer game hybrids that do book keeping and rules for me. I want pieces dice and cards but I can wait for them to come to life on the interactive tabletop surface!

I just hope it happens widely before I get to old...

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!
