Beetling about

A familiar game amuses Stanhoe WI members at their “retro” afternoon.

It was a very hands-on afternoon when 23 members of Stanhoe and Barwick WI met for a “Retro afternoon”. In order to mix us up and get everyone to chatter to new people our task was to play “Beetle”, a game that many of us remember from childhood. Only this game had new rules.

Grouped at tables of four people we were each supplied with a pen and printed Beetle sheet, with scores shown for various beetle parts, and also individual spaces for one’s own total score of beetle parts, and the total numeric score, for each Beetle, as well as a space to draw your own if the fall of the dice for your turn at the table allowed this.

Who knew that we could be so noisy? And so competitive! And get in such muddles when the winners at each table had to move tables in a clockwise direction, and the lowest scorers moved tables in an anti-clockwise direction.

After four games had been played prizes were awarded for the highest total scores, and booby prizes for the lowest scores.

Tea and cake were well deserved, and having calmed down we listened attentively to the WI Business announcements before making our way home.
