Next Meeting – 11th February 2014

Following the fire at the Jockey, our next meeting on Tuesday 11th February 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.

One of our regulars is moving to pastures new and this will probably be her last week.  So, we have decided to make “Feature Game” one of her favourites, Keyflower.  We have played it quite a bit, but she missed out on the Farmers expansion which was an interesting addition, so we may include that too, however, if she can’t make it, we may play something completely different…


And talking of farmers…

Jeff was a small-town country farmer with a watermelon patch.  Unfortunately, he found that some of the local kids had been helping themselves to his prized watermelons.  After some thought, Jeff came up with a way to discourage this profit-eating situation and he put up a sign that said, “WARNING! ONE OF THESE WATERMELONS CONTAINS CYANIDE!”

Jeff smiled smugly to himself the next evening as he watched the kids run off without eating any of his melons.  A couple of days later, Jeff returned to the watermelon patch to find that the sign was still having its desired effect and discover that none of the watermelons had been eaten.  However, there was now a new sign that said, “NOW THERE ARE TWO!”
