In the middle of winter and with the current stresses, people need social contact more than ever, and board games are a great medium for that. Despite the limitations of “remote gaming”, everyone feels it is important to stay in touch, so we are persisting with online meetings. Therefore, our next meeting will be on Tuesday 5th January 2021; we will gather from around 7.30pm, and start playing at 8pm.
This week, the “Feature Game” will be On Tour. This is a “Roll & Write” game where players are living the dream in a band going on tour. They have to plan the band’s route and schedule their stops visiting as many places as possible.

And talking of bands on tour…
Jeff and his mate Joe had gone to a U2 concert. They had just finished “Beautiful Day” when Bono asked the audience for quiet. Then, in the silence, he started to slowly clap his hands, once every couple of seconds. Holding the audience in total silence, Bono said into the microphone, “Every time I clap my hands, a child in Africa dies.” There was silence, as he continued to clap.
Jeff thought about it for a moment, then shouted out, as loud as he could, “Well stop doing it then!”
