The next meeting is on Tuesday 5th February playing shorter games from 7.30pm as people arrive, until 8pm when we will start something a little longer.
The “Feature Game” will be For Sale, which is a quick, fun game about buying and selling real estate, players first bid for several buildings then, after all buildings have been bought, sell the buildings for the greatest profit possible. We chose this game as we would like to play something a little more substantial that would depend heavily on who comes along (possible games include, Village, Niagara, Mystery of the Abbey, Vasco da Gama, Keyflower and Snowdonia).
And talking about selling property…
Jeff was selling his house, and went to the estate agent left the matter in his hands.
Over the next two days the agent took photographs of the house and wrote a description that made wonderful reading.
After Jeff had read it, he turned to the agent and asked, “Is that everything there?”
The agent responded, “Well, I think so, what do you think I’ve missed?”
Jeff replied, “Why nothing, but you can cancel the sale… the house is much too good to part with!”
