Design topic - Movement

We like to have a regular board game design topic on #BoardGameHour and today we are tackling movement in games. Lots of games have to address taking something from point A to point B, be it troops, trains or transporter beams..

So here are the areas for today's discussion:

Q1: What themes use movement as a mechanic well? Why? #BoardGameHour
Q2: What mechanisms do you like when in comes to movement, why? #BoardGameHour
Q3: What mechanisms don't you like when in comes to movement, why? #BoardGameHour
Q4: Is roll and move really that bad? #BoardGameHour
Q5: Are there any new and interesting ways to deal with movement? #BoardGameHour
Q6: General discussion about designing movement into games... #BoardGameHour

See you later :0)

More about #BoardGameHour

What is #boardgamehour? well it takes place on twitter once a week. It's a virtual hangout for people who either love board games or want to know more about the hobby.

So the big question is how does #boardgamehour work?

It's simple, to join in all you need to do is add the #boardgamehour hash-tag to your tweets, during the hour. To see what everyone else is saying just search for #boardgamehour!

Making #boardgamehour easier!

To make this live Twitter discussion easier, I have made a room on Nurph.com which we can all use. All you have to do is make sure you are logged into Twitter then go to http://nurph.com/BoardGameHour/chats and log in, using your Twitter account. You don't have to use this, everything will be the same as normal, but if you do us Nurph, it acts like a chat room for twitter and add the Hashtag automatically :0)
For one hour every week, it's time to talk nothing but board games. #boardgamehour happens across the western world Every Monday - start times are:

7pm (GMT)
11am (PST)
12pm (MST)
1pm (CST)
2pm (EST)

As long as you have a twitter account, mine is @boardgamehour for instance, you can be part of this rapidly growing movement. See you later
