Hi everyone,

Welcome to 2015! And to start off the month of January, we've have an extra order of ... COLD!! Yeah, very exciting, right? Uhhh, not really. But there is a partial remedy for the cold this weekend. It's the first Strategy Saturday of the year. So make plans to enjoy the company of others while playing games in a warm, comfortable place.

To start the year, I thought I'd keep it simple and feature some card games. In particular Rook (http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/1260/rook). Rook is a trick-taking game that has been around forever, but it seems that, at least here in Regina, it isn't as well known. This will be a good opportunity to learn a classic card game as well as some others.

Of course there will be other games as well.  Bring along a few of your favourites. And if anyone has a game they'd be willing to teach and feature for next month, please contact me about it.

Strategy Saturday will be at Argyle Road Baptist Church (3510 Argyle Rd) from 7pm to midnight.  As usual we'll have our snack counter open so feel free to contribute a drink or something to munch on.  And feel free to bring along friends (and to forward this email).

Hope you'll be there,

Allan
(along with Michael and Barry)

Nope to Magic and D&D. Click link and scroll down to Gaming Limitations (http://forums.saskgames.com/index.php?topic=281.0) for reasons why.

Its at neither of these locations. Both those churches are on Argyle Street.  ARBC is on Argyle Road.  The road section where it is located is midway between 25th Ave and Hill Ave (in south Regina)
