@BoardGamersAsk The webpage that we use to make this easier is not updating.. its ok for posting but you can't see the other tweets.. boooo #boardgamersask
@trzewik Hi everybody! Tweetchat seems to be dead. #MolochWatchesUs Let's have fun anyway! #boardgamersask
@BoardGamersAsk @trzewik Good man.. Copy and paste #boardgamersask is the only answer.. Sorry

@RMBLees @trzewik #boardgamersask firstly thanks for joining in. What was your non-Portal game of 2013?
@trzewik @RMBLees so far #LewisandClark I am eager to play #Caverna #boardgamersask

@BoardGamersAsk Thanks to @trzewik for taking part in todays #boardgamersask I'm sure we he will be rewarded with some great questions from you all

@BoardGamersAsk Right everyone give @trzewik a break tonight he has no assistance from the web.. Get you questions in! #boardgamersask

@BoardGamersAsk My first question is: Ignacy, why use board games to tell your stories not some other format? #boardgamersask

@trzewik @BoardGamersAsk #boardgamersask I began writing RPG to tell stories and was very very sucesfull, but in RPG was not enough money to live :(

@reldnahcire #boardgamersask @trzewik Thank you for joining us!  We really appreciate the time you are taking to spend with us!
@trzewik @reldnahcire #boardgamersask thank you. this is pleasure (crazy and frenzy, but pleasure :D)

@BoardGameHour Hi Ignacy, I love Co-op's do you have plans to do any more? What else could be brought to the co-op party? #boardgamersask
@trzewik @BoardGameHour #boardgamersask for some time I am done with co-ops ;)

@BirdExplorer @trzewik How do you go about playing #Theseus solo?  Play both sides to win or have chance implemented for your enemy?  #boardgamersask
@trzewik @BirdExplorer #boardgamersask I have no idea! You need to ask Michal Oracz how he can play it :D

@WispHollow #BoardGamersAsk What is your favorite game mechanic of any of the games you have played?
@trzewik @WispHollow #boardgamersask worker placement is ultimate mechanism - I can't imagine how it was to design a game before Caylus :)

@FlashForwardCo @trzewik #Boardgamersask First you're amazing at being both designer and publisher Q: What was your inspiration for Robinson Crusoe?
@trzewik @FlashForwardCo I am HUGE fan of Robnson novel & all novels from this genre It was my dream for long time to make such game #boardgamersask

@RMBLees @trzewik #boardgamersask "Board games that tell stories". Does the idea of telling stories via games come from your rpg background?
@trzewik @RMBLees #boardgamersask yes, I love reading books, love movies, I was very deep in RPG... board games are now my new tool #boardgamersask

@WispHollow #BoardGamersAsk just because I'm curious. .. If Space was empty and void before The Big Bang.  What caused The Big Bang??
@trzewik @WispHollow #boardgamersask I have no idea :D
@ginobrancazio @WispHollow I'll take this one, personal opinion as an ex-physics teacher: The Big Crush #boardgamersask
@HornwolfGames @WispHollow According to one theory, a previous universe that was condensed down in a Big Crunch. Fair?  #boardgamersask

@BoardGamersAsk Oh just in case you don't know.. make sure you click "all" in the twitter search section :0) #boardgamersask

@BoardGamersAsk Board gamers are so great at taking turns, this really doesn't need much hosting. Keep the questions coming #boardgamersask

@BoardGamersAsk And now i'm not sure that my twitter search is working properly either.. I might cry #boardgamersask
@ginobrancazio Hootsuite is working nicely for me.

@RMBLees @trzewik #boardgamersask is now the time to ask about Netrunner?
@trzewik @RMBLees #boardgamersask :) What question about Netrunner you have in your mind? :)

@WispHollow #BoardGamersAsk What advice would you give fledgling designers looking for publication?
@trzewik @WispHollow #boardgamersask do very good, engaging, well tested prototype and send it to me. :)

Part two will be posted tomorrow around the same time.. See you then
