At-Home Board Games

At Home – Board Games

As evenings draw in, and we may be spending more time at home, we’re creating a Forum for suggesting and investigating challenging Board Games, with a bit of a difference, to play for fun and to keep the mind working! For each game there would be a U3A member who would be happy to be an Adviser to others on the game e.g. over the phone/by email, and particular elements of its rules.

We start with three, but hope to get up to about 10:

Sequence: Board and Card game for 2-10 players. The board shows cards in a 10 x 10 pattern. Your task is to create rows, columns or diagonals of 5 connected squares. To learn more, please email Annie Grantham at john.grantham4@btinternet.com

Rummikub: Played with tiles on a table, for 2 – 4 players. You create runs of 3 or more tiles. There is a Rummikub group within U3A, and the group leader of that will be happy to give advice to this At Home group, for anyone wishing to play. Please contact Jill Harrison at jillharrison@onetel.com

Chess. Why not take up this ‘Game of Kings and King of Games?’..a Chess group was just getting underway as Lock-down arrived and hopefully you could join it as the situation changes. If anyone would like a game in the meantime – possibly but not necessarily by Zoom – each player having a board in front of them, please email john.grantham4@btinternet.com

Advisers are sought for Scrabble and Backgammon, and for other challenging, established games. Please contact John Grantham with ideas, focussing on board games suitable for 1 or for 2 people.
