Next Meeting – 14th January 2014

Following the fire at the Jockey, our next meeting on Tuesday 14th January will be held in a private house in Stanford.  Please get in touch if you would like to come along and would like directions.  As usual, we will be playing shorter games from 7.30pm as people arrive, until 8pm when we will start something a little longer.

This week the “Feature Game” will be Parade, which is a set collecting card game with an Alice in Wonderland theme.

Parade

And talking of Wonderland…

The White Rabbit was running happily through the Wonderland woods when he came across the Dodo smoking a cigarette.  He ran up the Dodo and said, “Hey, Dodo, you shouldn’t do that. Think of your health. You should come running in the woods instead!” The Dodo looked at the White Rabbit, looked at his fag, caughed, shrugged his shoulders, tossed the cigarette over his shoulder and ran off through the wood with the White Rabbit.

After a while the Dodo and the White Rabbit came across a the Cheshire Cat rolling a joint.  The White Rabbit ran up the Cheshire Cat and said, “Hey, Cheshire Cat, you shouldn’t do that.  Think of your health. You should come running in the woods instead!”  The Cheshire Cat looked at the White Rabbit and the Dodo, looked at the spliff, shrugged his shoulders, tossed the joint over his shoulder and ran off through the wood with the White Rabbit and the Dodo.

After a while they came across a the Mad Hatter setting up a line of Coke.  The White Rabbit said, “Oh, Mad Hatter, you really shouldn’t do that. You should come running with us in the wood. It is much better for you.”  The Mad Hatter looked at the White Rabbit looked at the line of Charlie, shrugged his shoulders, then ran off through the wood with the White Rabbit, Dodo, and Cheshire Cat.

After a while they came across a the Alice filling a syringe with heroin.  The White Rabbit said, “Oh, Alice, you really shouldn’t do that. You should come running with us in the wood. It is much better for you.”  Alice looked at the White Rabbit then at the syringe, shrugged her shoulders, then ran off through the wood with the White Rabbit, Dodo, Cheshire Cat and Mad Hatter.

After a while they came across the Queen of Hearts drinking her way through a magnum of Champagne.  The White Rabbit ran up to the Queen and said, “Your Majesty, you really shouldn’t do that.”  The Queen immediately jumped up and starts beating the White Rabbit mercilessly with her mace shrieking “Off with his head!”.  Alice grabed the Queen and pulled her off the White Rabbit and said, “Your Majesty!  What are you doing?!?!” The Queen gets one more blow in and says, “That Rabbit!  He always makes me run around the damn woods when he’s on Ecstasy!”
