It’s the Friday after trivia, it must be Games Night! Which is great, because board games are fun!
However, this Friday is in a kind of limbo as we’ve lost our incumbent Games Master to Supanova. If any member is interested in being a temporary Games Master, please let us know! The only thing a temporary Games Master really needs to do is show up at 8PM and bring along as many board games as possible! Any further activity (like bringing Tabletop episodes, etc) is a bonus! (And really, even the board games are negotiable…)
Edit: A Games Master has stepped up! Thank you, Jocko!

Sam discusses the portrayal of religion and faith in the Sci-Fi and Fantasy genres. Topical with the pope retiring and all!
Snacks and beverages at club prices!
And a reminder: no meeting next Friday because of Good Friday and Easter. Mmm, hot cross buns and creme eggs galore!
Jocko has another episode of “Prophets of Science Fiction” to view and discuss, focusing on the contributions by H.G. Wells. Nibbles and drinks will also be available at club rates! Come along for the usual sci-fi fun!
Readers of Ethel will already be familiar with the acrostic puzzle found in each issue. Well, now we’ll also be posting some puzzles here! We think the best way will be to post image files that should be easy to print, but please comment if you think there is a better way to present these puzzles! Click the images to see them full-size. Solutions will be supplied if requested.
Get to the puzzle!
Last month’s Board Games night was such a success, everyone had to be summarily kicked out at 11PM! Seeing as everyone is so pleased with this event, this is now a monthly event, the week after Trivia Night.
Last month, we had Space Munchkin, Zombie Fluxx and what looked to be a well-made, and hand-made, board game from a Russian Sci-Fi club. Hopefully, they’ll bring it on Friday so more people can give it a try!
Doors open at 8PM and we’ll probably start playing as soon as we can set up! As always, Eva will be serving up beverages and snacks at club prices.
