Civilization Games and Cheating

This weeks #BoardGameHour topics are once again inspired by real life. for a long time now I have been in the process of selling my house. A couple of days ago the contracts where ready to be signed and then everything would have been done. On that day I got an email saying that the buyer wanted to pay me less money than was agreed months ago! I said that I felt cheated and that I needed time to think about it. The buyer then pulled out, leaving me in a terrible situation (after months of working toward selling). I could only think "if this was a board game I would do all I could to hurt you... I should not agree the sale out of princible... I cant reward cheating..."

So, our topics for this week are Cheating and Civilization games. I hope you enjoy and also that the people who where meant to be buying my house get kicked in the butt by karma!

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!
