Next Meeting, 18th Movember 2021

As the Horse and Jockey are not currently serving food on a Tuesday, we are meeting on Thursdays for the time being.  Therefore, our next meeting will be on THURSDAY 18th Movember 2021.  We will start playing shorter games from 7.30pm as people arrive, until 8pm when we will start something a little longer (table is booked from 6.30pm for those who would like to eat first).

This week, the “Feature Game” will be Nusfjord.  This is a worker placement game by the same designer as Agricola, though themed around fish and set in a fishing village in the Lofoten archipelago in northern Norway.  As the owner of a fishing company the goal is to develop the harbour and the surrounding landscape clearing the forest, erecting new buildings, and satisfying the local elders.

And speaking of fishing…

Joe was taking Jeff fishing, so they were out in the garden searching for worms to use as bait. They came across many different insects, but nothing appropriate until Jeff proudly held up a long dangling insect.

Jeff excitedly exclaimed, “Howsabout this?”

Joe replied sadly, “Sorry we can’t use that.  It is not an earthworm.”

Jeff thought for a moment and looked a bit puzzled and then asked, “So what planet does it come from then?”
