Card and Board Games
The Card and Board Games Group is proving a great way to socialise over an informal hand of cards, board game, darts, dominoes etc. I'd recommend bring your own darts - experience is a great thing!!!! Currently the group is playing card games including Partner and/or Solo Whist, Rummy, Canasta and Cribbage. One of the best things to happen so far is members having the opportunity to learn games they have not played before. Don't be shy about turning up unsure about how to play a game - there is a lot of self-help, guidance and learning happening already...... LIVE, LAUGH, LEARN. With board games, possibly a loose description, we currently have Scrabble, the Viking game, Backgammon, Draughts and Dominoes available. Again members are joining in despite never having played before.........LIVE, LAUGH, LEARN
Those attending decide the games to be played that day – the group convener does not determine which games are played. The numbers who can play board games is dependent on the sets available – so if you’re a Scrabble fiend bring your board along!!
Fun while learning and sharing is a major part of the U3A ethos. Please bring along a favourite board game and suggest card games to share with others. For those who would like to learn, for example, a new card game a “self-help” group could develop to learn Bridge or other games.
The group meets 13.30 – 15.30 on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month at Withnell Fold Sports and Social Club. For the moment the cost is £2.50 (this covers room hire) including coffee and biccies - donations are appreciated for refreshments.
