Next Meeting – 29th May 2018

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, 29th 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 Taluva with the Extension, a tile laying and area control game where players attempt to successfully settle a South Sea island slowly emerging from the ocean waters as volcano after volcano erupts.  Players take it in turns to first place a tile, and then place a hut, temple, tower or sailing boat.  Winning is unusual as it is the player who’s placed most temples wins with ties broken by towers, then boats, then huts.
