Tactics vs Strategy and Licenced Games

Tactics vs Strategy

I often here tactics and strategy define basically as short term or instance decisions (tactics) and long term overarching choices / plans (Strategy).

I feel that they are different things but link together and can be hard to separate often. Some games have many tactical choices, "what is best to do this turn" and others have more long term planning. I like a good mix of both in my games but I'd love to hear what makes your tick :0)

Licenced Games

Licenced games are games that have intellectual properties attached to them. Back in the day most people would see a licence on a game and assume, more often than not correctly, that they would be poorly design games.

I think over the last few years this have shifted but I'd love to hear your thoughts!

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
Monday 7pm GMT - UK time
Monday 8pm CET - Germany
Tuesday 3am AWST - Western Australia

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!
