Next Meeting, 5th April 2022

From the start of April, we are moving back to Tuesday nights, so our next meeting will be on TUESDAY 5th April 2022.  As usual, 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 the Prelude expansion (rules & review) for Terraforming Mars (rules & how to play video).  Terraforming Mars is a card-driven engine builder game based round a central player board.  Players take the roles of corporations sponsored by the World Government on Earth to initiate huge projects to raise the temperature, the oxygen level, and the ocean coverage until the environment on Mars is habitable.  Players work together on the terraforming process, but compete for victory points.  The Prelude expansion accelerates the start of the game and provides a boost to players’ engines by the addition of Prelude cards at the start of the game.

And talking of outer space…

Joe was telling his cousin Jeff about his recent journey – he had just come back from the USA and was very proud of his new-found travel experience.

“Yeah,” replied Jeff, “I love to travel too.  Last year I went to Turkey and next year I’m going to India.”

Not to be out-done, Joe responded, “I’m saving up for a flight on the new Virgin Galactic space flight, I’ve already put my name down for it.  I want to fly to the moon!”

“Cool,” answered Jeff.  Determined to go one better, he added, “I’m waiting for the flights to the sun though.”

“How does that work?” asked his cousin, “Won’t you get all burnt up from the heat and stuff?”

Jeff paused for a moment.  “No,” he said thoughtfully, “We’ll just fly at night…”
