Next Meeting – 1st May 2018

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, 1st 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 Lords of Xidit, a simultaneous programming game with a very unusual scoring mechanism.  The game is set in the fantasy land of Xidit which is under attack.  The last remaining hope for restoring peace lies with the Kingdom’s noble heirs, the Idrakys, who must travel the Kingdom recruiting brave soldiers and restoring the threatened cities.

And speaking of heirs…

Jeff’s father was ill, very ill and had been given only weeks to live.  He was very wealthy however, and Jeff was due to inherit a fortune when his sickly, widower father passed on.

One day, Jeff was sitting in a café when in walked a woman whose beauty took his breath away.

“I’m only an ordinary man,” Jeff said, walking up to her, “But in just a few weeks, my father will die and I’ll inherit twenty million dollars.  I could really do with a gorgeous woman like you to enjoy it with.”

The beautiful lady fluttered her eye-lashes at Jeff, and, after he’d bought her a couple of drinks, went home with him.

A couple of days later, she became Jeff’s stepmother.
