Anthony BoydellUnited Kingdom
If its Friday night then its chips for all
Gonna make that call to the fryer’s hall
Then a bath for Arthur and stories too
Load up the car with a game or two
Off to Ross, feeling slightly cross,
(Kids playing up – but Dad is the Boss!)
Not wanting to play any new games today
I packed up the fav’rites I wanted to play
Noter Dame, one of Felds best, Snowdonia for play-test
I toyed with Labora (Et Ora from Uwe)
But thought it might prove a lengthy distraction
So lighter confections would give satisfaction.
I arrived, mid-Dominion for the Batesons and Bill
(Billikins, Boffo and Smudge if you will)
Smudge proving best at the ‘Provincial wrest’
Notre Dame was up next! Suitably vexed
We drafted and ratted for close to an hour
I won through (ab)use of the Park’s ‘plus V.P’ power.
St Petersburg followed, the rest of us allowed
Boffo to feed an uncatchable lead
My ‘last minute’ rush just failing to speed to the front
What a clown.
Still, with three games down: Coloretto to close
(well, for me ‘twas a close as I chose to depart
Wanting rest and repose...and a earth-trembling fart!)
Boffo victorious - despite my laborious jokes,
misdirection and pokes - I thanked these good folks
And went home.
All is well.
