Next Meeting, 3rd August 2021 – Online!

With the Jockey closed last week, we have decided to postpone our planned to return to the Horse and Jockey.  Therefore, our next meeting will be on Tuesday 3rd August 2021; we will gather from around 7.30pm, and start playing at 8pm.

We had hoped to mark The Games of the XXXII Olympiad in Tokyo and our return to The Jockey by playing Ticket to Ride with the Japanese map.  However, circumstances mean that this is the third unsuccessful try for that game.  So instead, this week, the “Feature Game” will be the Ishikawa map for MetroX.  The Japanese are very fond of their railways, so as the Ishikawa map is quick to play, we will follow it with another game of the new Railroad Ink Challenge, which we first played a month ago.

And talking of the Olympics…

Jeff had been out shopping and bought some new condoms.  When he got home, his wife noticed the brand. “Olympic condoms? What makes them so special?” she asked.

“They come in three colours,” Jeff replied. “Gold, silver and bronze.”

“What colour are you going to wear tonight?” his wife asked.

“Gold, of course,” answered Jeff.

“Really?” his wife responded. “Why don’t you wear silver?  It would be nice if you came second for a change…”
