Games at the holidays and gifts

Games at the holidays
This time of year is all about Christmas for me. I know not everyone celebrates the same holidays but there are many holidays that this #BoardGameHour can be about

I don't have any games that scream Christmas but I do have games I tend to play at this time of year. I don't know how I would feel about a Christmas themed game. What if I wanted to play it during the summer?


The holidays are often about gifts. Do you get board games as gifts, do you give them? I love getting board games at Christmas but I have to pick them because my collection is not something anyone else has a lot of knowledge of. I sometimes give board games as presents but generally only to people who I know will enjoy them and don't have there own collection.

This year both my son and my partner have asked for expansions to games they love which is a total win for me!

I'd love from you on this topic.

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)

#BoardGameHour Start Time
Monday 11am PST - USA west coast time
Monday 2pm EST - USA east coast time

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!
