Design issues and Sports games

Design issues

I'd like to thank for requesting this topic and providing some questions. It is aimed at people who are designing or have designed there own board games. We will talk about just a few of the issues that face designers. If you have no interest in designing your own board game why not ask questions of those who do. After all without designers we have no games.

Sports games

I'd like to thank @drwictz for  requesting this topic and providing some questions. I love lots of sports but have not really had much luck with finding sports games that work for me. I love American football but other than blood bowl (which is not the same) I've not got a game that gives me the grid iron feel.

Even if you don't like sports, please join in and tell us why :0)

If you have an question or topics you would like me to ask the board game community, drop me a tweet  @BoardGameHour and I'll do my best to accomodate :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: 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!
