Next Meeting – 30th April 2013

The next meeting is on Tuesday 30th April playing shorter games from 7.30pm as people arrive, until 8pm when we will start something a little longer.

Since we didn’t play it last time, the “Feature Game” will again be Ticket to Ride, which is a train game where players compete to make routes connecting cities.  We have chosen this as we are uncertain who will be coming, but we have a couple of new gamers showing an interest.  There are lots of different variations of this game, so it is very flexible and we can choose what variation to play depending on who comes.

Ticket to Ride

And talking of trains…

Two brothers, Jeff and Joe were taking their first trip on a train.  After a couple of hours, a vendor came down the corridor with a trolley selling food.  Now Jeff and Joe had led a sheltered life and the man was selling bananas which they’d never seen before, so they bought one each.

Jeff eagerly peeled his banana and bit into it just as the train went into a tunnel.  When the train emerged from the tunnel, he looked across at Joe and said, “I wouldn’t eat that if I were you.”

“Why not?” asked his brother.

Jeff replied, “I took one bite of mine and went blind for half a minute.”
