Jake is posting this in our news:
  Jake invites the members to try the new game Libretto, which has
  superficial resemblances to our game but very different strategy.
  It was the subject of a profile by Joe Edley in May 2019 Games
  World of Puzzles. It runs on Android phones and iPhones. Jake's
  "Display Name" is JackPoint; other members who would like to play
  are invited to share their Display Name in this newsletter.

Reminder: BAT to the Future is in just a couple of weeks - April 5 to 7
at the Courtyard by Marriott in Woburn (MA). 2 Early Birds on Friday and
a 14-game Main Event on Saturday and Sunday - lunch included on both days.
Trivia with Frank Tangredi on Saturday night. Contact Judy Horn
