Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 14th July, 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 Colt Express, which has just won the coveted Spiel des Jahres award. This is a game that takes place in an amazing 3D train in which the bandits can move from one car to another, run along the roof, punch the other bandits, shoot them and rob the passengers.

Jeff was doing really well on “Who Wants to be a Millionaire”. Surprisingly, he’d somehow got to £125,000 with all his lifelines, when Chris Tarrant asked the question.
“For £250,000 which of the following was one of the Great train robbers.” Chris paused, “Take your time, was it Ronnie O’Sullivan, Ronnie Biggs, Ronnie Corbett or Ronnie Wood?”
Jeff replied quickly, “I’ll take the money Chris.”
Chris Tarrant looked surprised, “Are you sure, Jeff?” he asked, “You’ve still got all three 3 lifelines intact, why don’t you phone a friend first?”
Without hesitating, Jeff replied, “I’m sure Chris, I’ll take the money.”
Chris shrugged and went on, “OK audience, give Jeff a big round of applause.” As the clapping stopped Chris added, “But before you go Jeff, I’m sure you’d like to know the answer.”
Jeff replied, “Oh, I know the answer…”
“You know the answer?” interrupted Chris Tarrant somewhat aghast, “You’ve just turned down a quarter of a million quid, are you mad?”
Jeff responded as he began to leave, “Oh, I may be mad Chris, but I’m no grass…”
