Next Meeting – 10th January 2017

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 10th January, 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 Jórvík, in which players assume the roles of Viking jarls. They gather prestige points by trading goods, holding big feasts, funding pillages, commissioning craftsmen and hiring soldiers to defend the city against recurring invasions.  The game is a re-theme of The Speicherstadt and its expansion, Kaispeicher.
