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 29th September 2020; we will gather from around 7.30pm, and start playing at 8pm.
This week, the “Feature Game” will be Welcome To…. This is another “Roll and Write” style game, though without the colouring-in element of some of the games we’ve played recently. In this game, players are planing and building housing estates in 1950s USA. In addition, we will be “wrapping parcels” for Crappy Birthday, to celebrate the eighth anniversary of our first meeting back in 2012.

And talking of building work…
Jeff and Joe were working as builders, replacing wooden facias on a house. Jeff looked over at Joe and was shocked to see him taking nails from his pouch, one by one, inspecting them, and throwing them over his shoulder.
Jeff yelled, “Hey Joe, what-ya doing? Why-ya throwing all those nails away for!?!?”
Joe yelled back, “Don’t shout at me, Jeff! It’s not my fault—all of these nails all have the head on the wrong end!”
Jeff pulled a nail from his own pouch, looked at it for a second, and yelled back, “Joe, you idiot, don’t throw them away, we can use them on the other side of the house!”
