Next Meeting – 23rd August 2016

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 23rd August, 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 Abluxxen (also known as Linko!), which is a quick little card-collecting filler game, with foxy art-work and plenty of opportunity to have a go at other players.  We have chosen this lighter game so that we have lots of flexibility in choosing what to play for the rest of the evening.

And speaking of foxes…

On his way home from work, Jeff found a fox cub on the side of the road.  It wasn’t going to survive the night on its own so Jeff picked it up and put it in his pocket and took it home.  When he got in, Jeff’s wife noticed the little creature straight away and he had to ‘fess up, telling her he was going to keep it as a pet.

“But where are you going to keep it?” she asked.

Jeff thought for a moment, and then replied, “Why, in the bedroom.”

His wife wasn’t pleased, “What about that horrid smell though?” she asked.

“Oh,” answered Jeff, “I got used to it, I’m sure he will too…”
