Next Meeting, 31st March 2020 – Online!

It is at times like this that we need social contact more than ever, and board games are a great medium for that.  As everyone is now confined to barracks and working from home, tonight’s meeting will be online, starting at 8pm.  There are several online gaming alternatives, but they all either cost or are horribly slow thanks to the fact that everyone else is trying to do the same… For this reason, we are going to try a real game using webcams.

So, this week, the “Feature Game” will be Las Vegas.  We have chosen this game because everyone knows it, so we can get started with minimal explanation; lots of people can play (eight) so as this is intended to be a social thing lots of people can be involved; it has no hidden information, so it should “work”.

And speaking of working from home…

It was a freezing cold morning in late March, and Jeff was up early as he had been having difficulties sleeping.   First thing he did after getting out of the shower was send a text to his girlfriend saying, “Windows frozen, won’t open.”

Jeff’s long-suffering girlfriend, Julie, responded, “Carefully pour lukewarm water over it and gently tap edges with hammer.”

Five minutes later, Jeff replied , “Computer really messed up now.”
