Knights and Mash-ups

This weeks #BoardGameHour topics are:

Image result for knight

They are a topic close to my heart, but are they covered well in board gaming. I know there are a ton of games about medieval times, but how many have knights as proper characters. How many games make you feel like you are playing as a knight rather than just pasting on a weak theme?


This is all about smashing two things together to make one new one. It is done some times with music. If is often done in board game design, but I thought it would be good for us to have a play with mashing-up stuff during the hour!

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!
