On the radio

Post  Rilkyn on Mon 13 Jan 2014, 00:13

Guys

Received the following message today.

On today's Drivetime show BBC Radio 2, (Friday 10th) Simon read out a text from a lady who was trying to work out the rules to Arkham Horror which her son had bought with his Christmas money. As such on Monday's show, Simon Mayo would like to briefly talk to someone who runs a board games club to find out what makes a great board game. For example what are the joys of actually playing a board game rather than a computer game and can they be too complicated. Apparently Arkham Horror has 1000 different cards! Can you let me know if this is something you could help us with? It would be a live 5 minute interview at 1720 on Monday 13th January? My direct line is 020 7765 4055.
Kind regards, Simon

I'll give this guy a ring to see if its' legit.  Anyone else received a similar message?

Craig

Back in August Mayo interviewed some Hasbro (or something) guy about 'modern' boardgames and it was awful, he just talked about his companies products (Dr Who top trumps or something). There was a thread about it on BGG here that you may find interesting. Maybe Mayo and the BBC are giving games a second chance?

I heard it... it was very brief, he just about had time to mention Ticket To Ride, Carcassonne, Dixit and Hanabi before he was cut off.... but none-the-less it was nice to hear people talking about boardgames on Radio 2!!  Very Happy

I loved the fact that the only games simon mayo could compare such games against were Monopoly, Cluedo and scrabble... Heist have mentioned them 4 times...
