The next meeting is on Tuesday 5th March playing shorter games from 7.30pm as people arrive, until 8pm when we will start something a little longer.
The “Feature Game” will be Nollkoll (aka Speedybag), which is a quick, fun game where players have to feel in their bag and match small plastic shapes with the pictures on a card. We chose this game as it is similar to one of our most frequently played fillers, Dobble and we would like to play something a little more substantial that would depend heavily on who comes along (possible games include, Agricola, Village, Niagara, Mystery of the Abbey, Vasco da Gama, Keyflower and Snowdonia).
And talking about bags…
A little paper bag was feeling unwell, so he took himself off to the doctors.
‘Doctor, I don’t feel too good,’ said the little paper bag.
‘Hmm, you look OK to me,’ said the Doctor, ‘But I’ll do a blood test and see what that shows. Come back and see me in a couple of days.’
The little paper bag felt no better when he got back for the results.
‘What’s wrong with me?’ asked the little paper bag.
‘I’m afraid you are HIV positive!’ said the doctor.
‘No, I can’t be – I’m just a little paper bag!’ said the little paper bag.
‘Have you been having unprotected intercourse?’ asked the doctor.
‘NO, I can’t do things like that – I’m just a little paper bag!’ he replied, quite distressed.
“Well, have you been sharing needles with other intravenous drug users?’ asked the doctor.
‘NO, I can’t do things like that – I’m just a little paper bag!’
‘Perhaps you’ve been abroad recently and required a jab or a blood transfusion?’ queried the doctor.
‘NO, NO, I don’t have a passport – I’m just a little paper bag!’
‘Well,,’ said the doctor, ‘are you in a homosexual relationship?’
‘NO! I keep telling you I can’t do things like that, I”M JUST A LITTLE PAPER BAG!’
‘Then there can be only one explanation,’ said the doctor. “Your mother must have been a carrier.’
