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 10th Movember 2020; we will gather from around 7.30pm, and start playing at 8pm.
This week, the “Feature Game” will be HexRoller. This is back to the “Roll and Write” style games and is a relatively recent release. It is a path building, abstract game played on a hexagon-based board, because hexagons are bestagons!

And talking of hexagons…
Jeff had been trying to teach his pet parrot to speak, but was struggling as the parrot liked learning what it wanted rather than what Jeff was teaching.
“Repeat after me,” said Jeff, “Five sides is a pentagon.”
The parrot sat silently, so Jeff continued, “Six sides is a hexagon.”
The parrot just looked at him, so Jeff tried again, “Eight sides is an octagon.”
With that the parrot said, “Five sides is a hexagon!” then gave a loud squawk, fell off his perch and landed on the floor of his cage stone dead.
Jeff just stood and stared in horror. His wife, hearing the noise came in from the other room.
“What on earth happened?” she asked.
Jeff replied, “Polygon.”
