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 27th October 2020; we will gather from around 7.30pm, and start playing at 8pm.
This week, the “Feature Game” will be Tiny Towns. Unusually, this is not a “Roll and Write” game, though it has some similar elements and is played with some of the pieces from the birthday boxes everyone opened last time. It is an area and resource management game where players are planning and building a town.

“Yes, it is,” replied the consultant. “So what’s your third question?”
