Next Meeting, 28th June 2022

Our next meeting will be Tuesday 28st June 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, to mark the start of the Tour de France on Friday, the “Feature Game” will be the Peloton expansion for Flamme Rouge (review, rules & explanation video).  Flamme Rouge is a fast-paced, tactical bicycle racing game where each player controls a team of two riders: a Rouleur and a Sprinteur with the aim being to cross the finish line first with one of their riders. Players move their riders by playing cards and use slipstreams to avoid exhaustion and position their riders to sprint for the win.

And speaking of bicycles…

Jeff was sitting in the pub beer garden with his mate Joe chatting about life.

“I’ve really had it with my dog,” said Jeff, “He’ll chase anyone on a bicycle.”

Joe answered, “Ahh, that’s annoying is that.” He took a long pull at his pint before he continued, “So what are you going to do—leave him at the dog’s home? Give him away? Sell him?”

“Oh no, nothing that drastic,” replied Jeff. “I think I’ll just confiscate his bike.”
