Next Meeting – 19th May 2015

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 19th May, 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 Machi Koro, which has just been nominated for the Spiel des Jahres.  This card game is a sort of cross between The Settlers of Catan and Dominion, where players take the role of mayor and roll dice and choose cards in order to make it the most successful town.

And speaking of mayors…

Jeff was sitting in the front row at a town meeting, heckling Boris as he delivered a long speech. Finally the mayor could stand it no longer, so he pointed at Jeff and said, “Will you please stand up and tell the audience what YOU have ever done for the good of the city.”

“Well Mr. Mayor,” Jeff replied in a firm voice, “I voted against you in the last election.”
