Next Meeting – 9th January 2018

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, 9th 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 Scoville, an unusual game with auction, set collecting and “travelling salesman” elements.  Players are trying to breed and cross-breed wooden chillis to get different coloured peppers and fulfil contracts.

“No, none of those,” replied Jeff, “I’m looking for toilet pepper…”
