Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, 30th 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 Terraforming Mars, which is card driven resource management game built round a map of the planet and its moons. Players take the role of giant corporations, sponsored by the World Government on Earth, to initiate huge projects to raise the temperature, the oxygen level, and the ocean coverage until the environment is habitable. The game was recently nominated for this year’s Kennerspiel des Jahres.

“How does that work?” asked his cousin, “Won’t you get all burnt up from the heat and stuff?”
Jeff paused for a moment. “No,” he said thoughtfully, “We’ll just fly at night…”
