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 13th October 2020; we will gather from around 7.30pm, and start playing at 8pm.
To celebrate our eighth birthday, as is now traditional, the “Feature Game” will be Crappy Birthday. This is a silly little filler/party game that is great fun when played rarely—about once a year is perfect. With the current challenge of “remote gaming” we have had to play it a little differently this year. So, everyone “wrapped their parcels” last time and this time we will be unwrapping them together…

It was Jeff’s birthday and, as it was a special birthday, his brother had bought him a special present. Before opening the gift, Jeff shook it slightly, and noticed that it was wet in the corner. Touching his finger to the wet spot and tasting it, he asked, “Is it a bottle of wine?”
His brother shook his head, “No…” So, again, Jeff touched his finger to the box and tasted the liquid.
“A bottle of Scotch then?” he asked, beginning to get all excited – this was way better than he’d expected. Again his brother shook his head though, “No, not a bottle of Scotch…”
Eventually, Jeff said, “OK, I give in, what is it?”
His brother paused for effect, before answering, “A puppy!”
