Next Meeting, 16th May 2023

Our next meeting will be Tuesday 16th May 2023.  As usual, we will start playing shorter games from 7.30pm as people arrive, until 8pm when we will start something a little longer.  For those who want to eat, the table is booked from 6.45pm.

This week, the “Feature Game” will be the Marina expansion (rules; review; how to play video) to one of our most popular little games, Draftosaurus (rules; review; how to play video).  The group first played this online in 2021, but since then have played it lots of times in person drafting real cute miniature wooden dinosaurs.  This expansion adds a bit more river and wooden Plesiosaurs.  We’ve picked this game because it we know it well and it plays quickly, allowing lots of options for the rest of the evening (including a possible rematch of Zoo Break for those that want to have another try).

Speaking of plesiosaurs…

Jeff and Joe were out sea fishing when they got a bite. It was a bigun’, and they tugged and hauled on the line, but there was a sudden snap and it got away.  It was getting late and time to go home, so as they headed back, they compared other near misses.

“A while back, I had a shark on my line,” said Jeff.  “Sadly, it got away though.”

“Wow,” replied Joe, “Last year I had a whale jump right over my boat.”

Jeff was not to be outdone, “That’s nothing,” he said.  “Why, just yesterday morning, I had a plesiosaur jump right into my boat!”

Joe, looked surprised as he had been out on the waves too and hadn’t heard about it.  “What time was that then?” he asked.

Jeff responded, “Time to get a new boat…”
