Next Meeting – 13th January 2014

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 13th January, 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 King of Tokyo, which is a fun game where players are mutant monsters, gigantic robots, and strange aliens – all of whom are destroying Tokyo and attacking each other in order to become the one and only King of Tokyo.  The winner must either destroy Tokyo, or be the only surviving monster once all the fighting has ended.

And talking about monsters…

Jeff was quite convinced that he’d swallowed a monster, and nothing his doctor said would make him change his mind.

Eventually, after trying several non-invasive therapies, the doctor decided he had to do something about it as his patient was getting quite distressed.  So, made Jeff a special appointment and, when he arrived asked him to change into a hospital gown and lie on the bed.  He then gave Jeff an injection that put him into a deep sleep.

When Jeff woke up, the doctor was standing beside his bed, holding a great big green monster on a lead.

“There’s nothing more to worry about,” the doctor said. “We operated on you and removed the monster.”

“Who are you trying to kid?” said Jeff. “The one I swallowed was blue!”
