This weeks topics are based on me playing Mysterium with my family over the weekend. It got me thinking about hidden information and also social interaction in board games.

I think you will agree that most games have some form of hidden information. Games with perfect information tend to be very tactically and sometimes dry. Chess is a good example of a game with no hidden information, but I cant think of to many other games I love that don't have any hidden information. I'm interested to know what the right amount of hidden information gets your juices flowing.

Social interaction is the main reason I play board games, but I know that's not the case for everyone. What games allow the right amount of social interaction for you?

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!
