Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 4th Movember, at the Horse and Jockey pub in Stanford-in-the-Vale. 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 Secret Moon. This is a small quick card game that is the sequel to one of our most played games, Love Letter, and tells the story about what happens when the Princess receives her message and goes out to meet her young man by the light of the Secret Moon. This game has a lot in common with Werewolf, in that there are two teams: those on the side of the Princess, and those on the side of the Minister, but while everyone knows which side they are on, they don’t know who else is on the same side.
And talking of the Moon…
It was a couple of days after Neil Armstrong had landed on the moon and Jeff was chatting about it with his brother, Joe.
“Joe, do you think they’ll put a man on the sun next?” Jeff asked.
“Of course not,” replied Joe, “If you send a man to the Sun, he will burn up with the heat and stuff.”
Jeff sat and thought about it for a moment and then said, “Don’t be silly, they’d send him at night…!”
