Next Meeting – 8th March 2016

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 8th March, 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 Kingdom Builder, which is an area control and network building game where players create their own kingdoms by skilfully building their settlements, aiming to earn the most gold at the end of the game.  The game is fairly light and won the Spiel des Jahres in 2012.

And speaking of gold…

Jeff came home drunk at four in the morning.  It had been a really good night, but his wife didn’t see it that way was very upset, yelling and crying because she thought he was with another woman.

In despair, Jeff pleaded, “No, honey, I swear, I was at this bar, and it was so fancy that even the urinals were made of gold!”  Obviously his wife didn’t believe him, so she called the bar.

“Hello,” she said, “My husband claims to have spent the night at your bar and I have one question; are your urinals plated with gold?”  To which she heard the bartender say, “Hey, Clarence, I think we found the guy who widdled in your saxophone…!”
