Next Meeting – 28th November 2017

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, 28th November, 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 Lords of Waterdeep, a worker placement game where players take on the role of one of the masked Lords of Waterdeep, secret rulers of the city who use their agents to recruit adventurers to go on quests, earning rewards and increasing their influence over the city.

And speaking of adventures…

It was a dark and stormy night and Jeff was hitch-hiking home.  He had been waiting a while fr a lift, so he decided to walk a little way to warm up.  As he followed the road, he could see a light ahead and as he got closer he could see it was an inn known locally as “George and the Dragon”.   It was late and the door was locked, but Jeff was tired and hungry so he knocked on the door.

The landlady answered.  “Could you give a poor man something to eat?” asked Jeff.

“What d’ye think you’re doing banging on the door at this time of night?  Be off with ye!” yelled the woman, slamming the door in his face.   Jeff thought for a moment and then knocked again.

This time an upstairs window opened.  “What d’ye want now?  D’ye not understand English? I’ve told you to go home!” the woman shouted down.

Jeff stammered, “Um, could I perhaps just have a few words with George instead please?”
