Although the signs of spring approaching are clear, with the current stresses, people still need what social contact they can get, 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 16th February 2021; we will gather from around 7.30pm, and start playing at 8pm.
This week, the “Feature Game” will be MetroX (aka メトロックス). This is a return to the “Roll and Write” style game, and in this one, players are trying to get the most points for completing the routes and joining the most lines on their underground map.
