Next Meeting – 7th August 2018

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, 7th August, 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 Altiplano, a bag building game that re-implements some of the mechanisms found in Orléans.  Players must build an effective production engine as well as deliver the right goods at the right time and store goods cleverly enough to fill the most valuable areas of their warehouse, all the while being scrutinised by a large cardboard alpaca…
