Next Meeting – 2nd May 2017

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, 2nd 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 Mamma Mia!, a little card game with a pizza theme – something that seems wholly appropriate given how many of us now have pizza on a Tuesday at The Jockey.  Mamma Mia! was designed by Uwe Rosenberg who was also responsible for Bohnanza, one of our all-time favourite card games, so it will be interesting to see how it compares.

And talking of pizza…

Jeff was in Japan on a business trip, but after a few days he had a hankering for pizza, so he asked the concierge at his hotel if there was anywhere nearby that he could get one. The concierge told him he was in luck and a pizza place had just opened down the road, and they delivered.

The concierge gave Jeff the phone number, and he took it back to his room and ordered a pizza. Thirty minutes later, the delivery man appeared at his room door with the pizza. As Jeff took the pizza he began sneezing uncontrollably.

Jeff asked the delivery man, ”What on earth did you put on this pizza?”

The delivery man bowed deeply and replied, “We put on the pizza what you ordered: pepper only…”
