Next Meeting – 18th October 2016

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 18th October, 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 The Game: Extreme, which is a game picked up from the Game Fair last week in Essen.  We’ve played The Game quite a lot, but this new version adds extra instructions on some of the cards that make the game quite a bit more challenging.

And speaking of “the game”…

Jeff was working as assistant manager in a hotel.  They used to get all sorts of people staying, one day a group of chess enthusiasts checked in.  That evening, the gamers were all standing in the lobby discussing their recent tournament victories. After about an hour, Jeff came out of the office and asked them to disperse.

“But why?” one of them asked, as they started to move on.

“Because,” answered Jeff, “I can’t stand chess nuts boasting in an open foyer.”
