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 9th June 2020; we will gather from around 7.30pm, and start playing at 8pm.

In this game, dice determine which colour and how many spaces players can mark off on their personal playing sheet.

The dealers stared at each other dumbfounded. Finally, Joe asked, “So, what did she roll then?”
Jeff answered, “I don’t know – I thought you were watching…”
