Remember Remember 3rd June 2017

The break in the Blog has been due to a short holiday and lots of stuff to do at home, so the quiz picture is a little different this time. I was hoping to link this to a game but sadly I cannot think of any, cryptic answers please to this bird which is fairly common in reed and sedge beds in Kent, the answer will be given next week. 

The last quiz picture was Glastonbury the multiple player version of Kupferkessel (Copper Kettle) an excellent 2 player game.

The 3rd June 2017 we have hired the room at the Style and Winch PH in Maidstone for all-day gaming so if you are a reader of this Blog why not call in and play a game with us, unlike all the boardgame cafes there is no table fee just buy a drink at the bar on your way through, just introduce yourself to the chap in the Yellow MAB polo shirt or the guy with the magnificent whiskers and we will get you playing.

Over the last two sessions the following games have been played.

I would normally go into a couple of games to give you an idea of what we played, however this time will be a quick diversion to what can be found in Norfolk. Half of these pictures were taken at RSPB Titchwell Marsh which I cannot recommend enough, not only a nice reserve with more species than I have ever seen at Dungeness but very friendly and helpful staff.

 There were lots of ducklings and goslings about most prettier than this chap a young Grey Lag Goose.

 A rare spot in Kent (though they have appeared at Oare Marshes on the odd occasion), a Bearded Reedling (aka Bearded Tit), it is a gorgeous bird.

I know none of these were game related but I was short on time and I hope you enjoyed.
