Next Meeting, 12th July 2022

Our next meeting will be Tuesday 12th July 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).

Following last week when we played Flamme Rouge to mark the start of the Tour de France, this week the “Feature Game” will be the older bike racing game, 6-Tage Rennen (aka 6 Day Race).  As for Flamme Rouge, players move their riders by playing cards and use slipstreams to gain an advantage, but it is more turn based than the newer game.  This should be quick to play giving everyone a chance to play something different.

And speaking of bicycles…

Jeff was riding his bicycle up and down the street when he saw his mum in the front garden. He let go of the handlebars, waved his hands in the air and yelled to his mum “Look mom, no hands!”

His mum replied, “Be careful darling…”

Jeff was enjoying showing off however, so he lifted his feet off the pedals and shouted, “Look mum, no feet!”

His mum replied more sternly, “Be careful, darling…”

Then suddenly, there was a loud crash as Jeff and his bike hit the tarmac. His mother ran over and, as Jeff slowly got back up, he said, “Look mum, no teeth!”
