The #boardgamehour Twitter chat takes place every 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:

11am (USA - Western Time)
2pm (USA - Eastern Time)
7pm (UK)
8pm (Germany)

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

"We don't listen to the board game hour podcast and neither should you because..."

Ben Maddox and the Minister of Board Games (Nate  Brett) host the #BoardGameHour podcast. A show with adult humour and sketches. They also look back at what the board game community has been talking about during the #BoardGameHour Twitter chats and share our opinions on many gaming subjects.

If you want to laugh while not being sure you should be, check out the Board Game Hour Podcast

Your hosts for the Board Game Hour podcast are:

The Minister of Board Games (@MOBoardGames or @BoardGameHour)

Ladies and gentlemen.. In the blue corner, hailing from parts unknown, weighting in at 210 pounds,
at 6 feet tall and with the body of a god (Buddha).. It’s Nate Brett.. *slow clap from the audience*

Elected to the House of Consequences, the home of Parliament in 2013 he has since been the Minister of Board Games and is the bloke behind #boardgamehour.. He might be an evil genius.. 

Known for his mild manner, placid, introvert ways Nate is know for not taking hard lines on subject. He has been playing board games for over 134 years

The Voice of the Meeple (@BenisAce)

An actor of such distinction that Google snorts at you derisively when you enter his name as a search
term, Ben Maddox has been losing at hobby board games for over two years. He has lost in England, Austria and is currently losing in Berlin, Germany.
His primary focus is losing at Euro games but he is just as happy losing at thematic games and even being killed in the first five minutes in some RPGs.

He periodically vents his quite considerable spleen in a blog on boardgamegeek.com entitled “Misadventures in Thick Paper and Plastic” and is in the process of starting a podcast in which his heroic bitterness may very well melt itunes.

  1. We loved cartoon-based games when we were young (thinking of SpongeBob) and junior versions of Trivial Pursuit and Cranium. You get the idea.


Thanks for adding to the conversation on Ministry of Board Games ;-)
