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 everyone feels it is important to stay in touch, so we are persisting with online meetings. Therefore, our next meeting will be on Tuesday 22nd December 2020; we will gather from around 7.30pm, and start playing at 8pm.
This week, to celebrate the Festive Season, the “Feature Game” will be the Winter Wonderland edition of Welcome To…. This is a variant on the “Roll & Write” style game where players plan and build 1950s housing estates in the USA. This game includes the addition of festive artwork and fairy lights.

And talking of Christmas lights…
Jeff and his wife, Jane, were putting were putting up Christmas decorations around the festive Grotto, helped by children from the local primary school, all dressed as Santa’s helpers.
After several hours getting things just right, they were just about to start the big switch on when Jane said, “Hold on a second, I’m going to get some gaffer-tape.”
Jeff was puzzled and asked, “What for? Everything’s very secure…”
Jane responded, “I’ve just spotted that the power cable is lying across the entrance—we’d better tape it down because it’s a bit of an elf hazard…!”
