Next Meeting – 11th December 2012

The next meeting is on Tuesday 11th December playing shorter games from 7.30pm as people arrive, until 8pm when we will start something a little longer.

The “Feature Game” will be Alhambra, where players are architects, seeing who can build the greatest palace.


And talking of architects…

A man is flying in a hot air balloon and realizes he is lost. He reduces height and spots a man down below.

He lowers the balloon further and shouts down, “Excuse me, can you help me? I promised my friend I would meet him half an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am.”

The man below replies, “You’re in a hot air balloon, hovering 30 feet above this field between 40 & 41 degrees latitude and 120 and 124 degrees West longitude.”

“You must be an Architect,” says the balloonist.

“I am,” responds the man, “How did you know?”

“Well,” says the balloonist, “Everything you have told me is technically correct, but it’s of absolutely no use to me and I still don’t know where I am.”

The man retorts, “You must be a contractor.”

“Well yes,” replies the balloonist, “But how did you know?”

“Well”, says the man, “You don’t know where you are or where you’re going. You’ve made a promise that you can’t keep, but now you expect me to solve your problem. You’re in the same position as you were before we met, but now it’s my fault.”
