It Beats Watching The TV

A daily blog about games, family and occasionally random other things. Well, it gives me something to do, and you something to read doesn't it!?

Well, what a let down that was.

A sad man, recently

Tuesday evening is "our" evening at the pub for Games For A Laugh - but not this week. Despite assuring us that all was clear for our normal games room we were unceremoniously dumped late on Tuesday afternoon by a phone call from some creep to poor old Gareth.
Despite him having checked that everything (was) in its right place at the weekend the King Charles room was "suddenly" full with a party of 50. Not only that but the Poker Room was also out of bounds and they were close to capacity in the pub with all the Christmas Diners.
It must have been like spinning plates for our de-facto organiser / social media guru / head of marketing trying to inform all of our disparate gaming group members.
There, There Gareth, don't go getting the bends trying to fix things.
He was in a bit of a sulk as he'd given up a free trip to the brewery (see last weeks "GFaL" non-write up, they're so popular at Loose Cannon they run 2 parties tours in December).

I suppose that being as we get to play for free almost every week we shouldn't complain too much - our typical pint or lime & soda and bag of crisps verses hordes willing to pay £30 per head for the Christmas menu?
No surprises what what wins out there!
Perhaps the pub can put the extra revenue toward some better Christmas decorations and a proper Norwegian spruce - they've only got fake plastic trees in there at the moment.
I might be wrong but maybe they had the Karma Police pay a visit as there was apparently a power cut in town Tuesday evening.

Well, when I got home (and after checking Mrs B acquiesced) I gave him a call and just like a jigsaw falling into place he came around, not to watch some talk show host on videotape or to listen to a motion picture soundtrack but to play a quick game - which I'll write about tomorrow.
And now I will give up the ghost and ask you - "How many did you spot"...
