Theme Week: Deities & gods

Its theme week on #BoardGameHour. So today we are talking about games themed around deities and gods. Now, I know this could be a sensitive subject but we have covered subjects such as race, sexuality and gender before, so I'm sure it will be fine. We have always been a very inclusive and polite community how are open about our views and tolerant to others. I see no reason why this will change, as everyone who takes part in #BoardGameHour rocks...

Also we have an extra bit of fun going on today. Long standing participant
Tim Blank aka @OMGsGame is going to be giving away a copy of his already funded game:

Link to the kickstarter here To be in win a chance of winning this and some other goodies he is going to give away you just need to take part in todays #BoardGameHour.. The more you join in the more chances you have to win.. Simple!

A quick side note: It really gets my back up when companies or individuals who do not join in with #BoardGameHour pop up for one week and say "back my kickstarter, heres the link".. It's rude, insulting to those who don't treat the community with such contempt and frankly lazy. Even if I really wanted that game, I would not back it out of principle. However if people who are part of the community want to promote their projects, they should send me a message :0)
