Next Meeting – 26th June 2018

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, 26th June, 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 Concordia: Aegyptus / Creta, the latest expansion for Concordia, a strategy game of economic development in Roman times.  We’ve played Concordia a few times on Tuesdays, and Fridays at the Didcot Games Club; we’ve played both the base game and with the Salsa expansion, and it has always been enjoyed.

And speaking of Romans…

Like Jeff, all his descendants fancied their chances at getting rich.  One in particular, Jefficus Stultus, had thought that being a gladiator was a good way of achieving his dreams.  He did alright on his first visit to the arena, but his second bout was less successful.  First his opponent sliced off both of his arms; Jefficus never wanted for courage, however, and fought on, kicking and biting as furiously as he could. When Jefficus’ opponent lopped off both his feet though, the brave gladiator had no choice but to give up.

He was now both unarmed and defeated…
