Lone Pine playing Fury of Dracula (1987) in Heaton, Newcastle Upon Tyne

So it’s only 2 months since my good friend Pete, aka Lone Pine and I last hooked up. Not bad considering we live 320 miles apart.  I travelled up to my old stomping ground of Newcastle Upon Tyne, and to Heaton – where I actually grew up between the ages of zero and 9 before relocating to the more verdant landscape of Jesus Mound.  It’s late. Everyone has gone to bed. Pete and I crack open the whisky and set up the board. We also find Francis Ford Coppola’s movie Dracula – with Gary Oldman and Anthony Hopkins (as Van Helsing) – on YouTube and so have it playing in the background. It’s one of my favourite interpretations of the classic story. And with a fantastic musical score, the whole room came alive with the atmosphere and adventure of the movie.  3 games in a row. Some of the most perfect and memorable games ever. Ever.
