Knights and Mash-ups

This weeks #BoardGameHour topics are:

Knights
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?

Mash-up

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: http://twubs.com/boardgamehour or http://tweetchat.com/room/boardgamehour 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!
