Next Meeting, 1st November 2022

Our next meeting will be Tuesday 1st November 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.  Please note that the pub will not be serving food on Tuesdays for the foreseeable.

This week, the “Feature Game” will be Downforce: Danger Circuit (rules), an expansion for Downforce (review, play through video, rules).  Downforce is a card-driven bidding, racing, and betting game based on the older game Top Race (which in turn is a reimplementation of several other games including Niki Lauda’s Formel 1).  The Danger Circuit expansion adds two new tracks with dangerous spaces and crossover loops as well as drivers with new skills.

Speaking of car racing…

Jeff and his mate Joe were chatting about how they had both been enjoying the current Formula One racing season.

“It’s great that I have Sky, because it means I can watch every race, ” said Joe.

Jeff answered sadly, “I keep trying to watch racing on my computer but every time I press the F1 key it just opens a help window.”
