Next Meeting – 20th August 2019

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, 20th 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 Ivor the Engine. This is a great little card-driven, sheep-collecting, train game featuring fabulous artwork from the late, great Peter Firmin.  Although it is not a difficult game to play and looks like a cute kiddies game, it has vicious little teeth that make it a fine little game.

And speaking of trains, and sheep…

A mathematician, a physicist, and an engineer were traveling though Scotland by train, when the engineer looked out the window, saw a black sheep.  He exclaimed, “Hey! They’ve got black sheep in Scotland!”

The physicist looked out the window and corrected the engineer, “Strictly speaking, all we know is that there’s at least one black sheep in Scotland.”

The mathematician looked out the window and corrected the physicist, “Strictly speaking, all we know is that is that at least one side of one sheep is black in Scotland…”
