Next Meeting, 2nd March 2021 – Online!

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 2nd March 2021; we will gather from around 7.30pm, and start playing at 8pm.

This week, the “Feature Game” will be the first Hexpansion to HexRoller.  This is another “Roll and Write” style game, and this one is very abstract, though based on hexagons (which are the bestagons, obviously).  This game should be quite short, so will give time to play something else afterwards.

Jimmy looked a little uncomfortable for a moment and thought for a bit, but eventually replied, “We learnt πr2.”

Jeff looked at him and frowned, “Don’t be silly, everyone knows pies are round and it’s cakes that are square…”
