Next Meeting – 22nd March 2016

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 22nd 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 Glen More, which is a tile laying game set in the seventeenth century highlands.  The game has an unusual turn order mechanic (similar to that in Tokaido) as well as a novel scoring system and was chosen following the success of Isle of Sky: From Chieftain to King.

And speaking of Scottish Glens…

When Sandy MacGregor came back from his first trip to London, everyone in the Glen was keen to find out how he had got on.

“So bonny lad, did ee like it?” one elder asked over a wee dram.

“Oh, it was no’ bad, really,” commented Sandy, who was busy thinking about other things.

“As good as that, was it?” came the dry response.

” Well,” Sandy expanded, more thoughtfully, “There was just the one thing wrong. The other guests in ma hotel just would nee go to their beds. They were in the corridor ootside ma room shouting and banging on ma door until three o’clock in the morning.”

“So what did you dae, Sandy?” the elder asked.

Sandy shrugged, “Och, I just kept on playing ma bagpipes.”
