No Games.

There will be no gaming at the Ribs of Beef tomorrow evening (Tuesday 14th June). The Peanut Worm Appreciation Society are holding their annual barbecue in the pub and they outnumber us 7-1 (plus worms). I do not fancy those odds.

We shall be back in business next week, 21st June at the usual time - 7.30pm.

Back on track

I’ve been very slack at keeping this up to date. Apologies. It probably means that I haven’t won many games recently - I only write this blog so I can brag about how I win at Taj Mahal. Against new players. After I’ve taught them the game. And missed out a vital rule. So here is a brief update of the past few months.

Kevin and Christine have left us in order to open a paddlefish farm in Redcar. We wish them the best of luck with their new jobs and in their new home. Out with the old in with the new. Diane and Nicky joined us at the start of April. They have an excellent attendance record. Diane excels at card games, whereas Nicky is adept at games with an Egyptian theme. We’ve also recently been joined by Ryan and Starbuck. Jimmy also returned from his sabbatical – huzzah!

What have we been playing? Shed loads of stuff is the answer. Here is a quick run down of what I can remember:

Power Grid
Frank’s Zoo
Combat Commander: Europe
The Phantom League
Chicago Express
6 Nimmt
In the Year of the Dragon
Last Night on Earth: The Zombie Game
Land Unter
Lost Valley

Last week we (Jimmy, Luke, Rich, Phil and I) played Navegador. I won. Huzzah!
