Next Meeting – 17th September 2019

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, 17th September, 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 West of Africa which is a game set in the Canary Islands where players cultivate goods, try to sell them as profitably as they can and then use the money to build settlements. Each player has their own deck of cards which they use to carry-out their actions, keeping the requirements of the other players in mind.

And speaking of canaries…

The festive season was approaching and Jeff’s daughter was getting excited in the way only small children can.  One day, she asked, “Dad, can I have a canary for Christmas?”

Jeff replied, “No, you can’t, you’ll have turkey like everyone else…”
