If you’ve not taken part in board game hour then have a quick listen of this show from back in March.

Right, now we’re all up to speed on Monday 1st September the nominations for the 1st ever Board Game Hour Awards started.

Week by week throughout September, everyone who participates in #BoardGameHour will get to shape the awards to be what the games community wants & needs!

So week one was the #GameChanger award for Innovation in Board Gaming. You can replay the board game hour via the nurph site and head over to the The Ministry of Board Games website for the current list of nominations.

Who did we nominate…

Remember 64oz games from our Kickstarter show? (pss it’s here if you’ve not been listening)

We nominated Richard & Emily from 64oz games for “Board Games – Now Blind Accessible”

The things those guys are doing to bring boardgames to a whole community, who’ve never had the access most sighted people take for granted, is just awesome. Speaking with Richard & Emily really blew my mind, so many things I never considered. It’s awesome stuff they’re doing and they deserve a high five and all the gold stars!

We also nominated…

Matt Leacock for Pandemic

This is brilliant game, and really changed the way Geek On Radio HQ look at board games, it was one of the first games we picked up and the whole innovation of co operative play just blew out minds.


But you don’t have to stick with our nominations, you can head over to twitter & use the #BGHAwards & #GameChanger tags and tell @BoardGameHour who you nominate!

See you at next #BoardGameHour (Monday 7pm) to talk about the “I Want More” award for Best Re-playability!
