Next Meeting – 21st February 2017

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday 21st February, 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 Bokken Schieten (aka Ziegen Kriegen or Cliff Hanger). This is a quick little trick-taking game in which players accumulate goats.  The winner of the game is the player who collected the most goat’s heads without going over the limit dictated by the central hill.

And talking of goats…

Jeff was driving round London when a policeman pulled him over.  “What are you doing with that goat?” he exclaimed, pointing to the goat sitting in the passenger seat. “You should take it to the zoo.”

“That’s an excellent idea officer, I will do just that!” replied Jeff and the Policeman waved him on his way.

A week later, the same policeman saw Jeff again, once more with the goat in the passenger seat, but this time both were wearing sunglasses.

As before, the policeman pulled him over, “I thought you were going to take that goat to the zoo!” he said angrily.

Jeff replied, “I did. We had such a good time we are going to the beach this weekend!”
