Next Meeting – 31st May 2016

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 31st 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 Vanuatu, in which players are striving to be the most prosperous islanders in the archipelago.  The game is a mixture of role selection and worker placement with a couple of little nasty twists thrown in for good measure.

And speaking of the Vanuatu archipelago…

Jeff was visiting the island of Gaua for a holiday.  He had got up late and was looking for a mid morning snack when he saw a little local shop.  Jeff walked and asked the cashier, “How much are your doughnuts?”

“Oh, they are only ten vatus, sir,” she replied smiling.

Jeff thought for a moment, looking round, “So what about the coffee?”

The cashier continued smiling, “Why, it is only five vatus and refill is free.”

Jeff paused as he considered the complicated maths, then, very pleased with himself, he took out a ten vatus coin and handed it to the cashier saying, “One doughnut and one refill, please.”
