Next Meeting – 5th May 2015

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 5th April, 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 The Settlers of Catan.  Often the feature is a new game that people want to play, but this is an older game, celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.  “Settlers” was a pioneering game as it has a trading phase that keeps everyone involved throughout.  Players then use the resources to build roads, settlements and cities, but must beware the robber who can attack at any time…

And speaking of robbers…

Jeff was really short of money, so he decided that he had to take desperate measures.  He got out a balaclava and broke into a bank.  When he got in, he pointed his gun at the cashier said, “Give me all your money, or you’ll be GEOGRAPHY!”

Despite looking down the barrel of a gun, the cashier couldn’t help laughing and said, “I think you meant to say ‘HISTORY’.”

Very stressed by it all failing to go according to plan, Jeff answered angrily, “Don’t change the subject…”
