Next Meeting, 12th May 2020 – Online!

It is at times of stress that people need social contact more than ever, and board games are a great medium for that.  Despite the limitations of “remote gaming”, the overwhelming impression is that it is important to stay in touch, so we are persisting with online meetings.  Therefore, our next meeting will be on Tuesday 12th May 2020; we will gather from around 7.30pm, and start playing at 8pm.

This week, the “Feature Game” will be one of our favourite games, the game of bulls’ heads, 6 Nimmt!.  We have chosen this game because lots of people can play, and this is intended to be a social event so it is important that everyone can be involved and we’ve had an awful lot of fun with the game in the past on games nights.  It is a very simple game and everyone knows the rules, so it should be a relatively gentle introduction for those not used to the environment.

And speaking of bulls…

Farmer Jeff was inspecting his herd of cattle, when a large, sudden, gust of wind knocked all the cows to the ground. The bulls, on the other hand, just swayed as the wind buffeted them, and continued eating.

Jeff was very surprised by this, so went up to one of the bulls and asked,”How come you bulls are all still standing when all the heifers were blown over?”

The bull looked at him for a moment before replying, “Because we bulls wobble, but we don’t fall down…”
