Next Meeting – 16th June 2015

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 16th June, 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 Evolution, which is a game where players adapt their species in a dynamic ecosystem where food is scarce and predators lurk to ultimately out-evolve other players’ dinosaurs to win the most food… and the game.

And speaking of evolution…

One day, Jeff was discussing evolution with two other engineers, when one of them brought up the question of who designed the human body.  Jim insisted that the human body must have been designed by an electrical engineer because of the perfection of the nerves and synapses.
John disagreed, and exclaimed that it had to have been a mechanical engineer who designed the human body as the system of levers and pulleys is ingenious.

“No,” Jeff said, “You’re both wrong,” and the others waited for Jeff’s usual pearls of wisdom.  “The human body was designed by an architect. Who else but an architect would have put a toxic waste line through a recreation area?”
