A man who has invited three friends round to his home to play the board game Terra Mystica has failed to memorize the rules in advance.
Bryan Robson, aged 23, bought the game from internet retailer Chaos Cards, two days ago, believing that this would give him plenty of time to familiarize himself with the mechanics. However, thanks to a leak under the kitchen sink and an unexpected visit from relatives, he was unable to find the time to go through the manual.
Mr Robson, remaining optimistic, said: “I am sure I will have time to flick through the rules while the others are punching out the cardboard tokens and sorting them into little piles. It’s bound to be intuitive anyway.”
One of the guests, Tina Moon, said “I have brought Dobble, just in case.”
