Next Meeting – 18th Movember 2014

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 18th 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 Caverna:  The Cave Farmers.  This is a longer game that is closely related to a game we’ve played quite a bit called Agricola.  In Agricola, players start with two people and a hut and have to build their small-holding with points awarded at the end of the game for the most balanced farm.  Caverna has a new skin, but similar theme:  players start with two dwarves and are trying to develop their cavern in the hillside while chopping down the forest for use as pasture.  There are a lot of small differences that make the game a bit more streamlined, so it will be interesting to see which game people prefer.

Caverna: The Cave Farmers

And talking of the dwarves…

It was a wet and miserable evening when Jeff reversed into another car at the supermarket.

A dwarf got out of the other vehicle looking cross and said, “I am not happy…!”

Jeff replied, “OK, so which one are you then?!?!”
