This is a newly formed group, and will meet on Wednesdays in half of the Maraitaine lounge, once this has been vacated by the choir at 3 pm., so the time for the group will be 3.15 until 5.00.
Crib is one of the best – if not the best – two player card games, and dates back as far as the seventeenth century. It can also be played by 3 players; or 4 players playing in pairs. Like all the best card games, it presents a satisfying combination of skill and chance.
The basics of the game are fairly easy for new beginners to pick up, especially if you are pretty handy at adding up different combinations of small numbers between 1 and 10. With experience new players will start to learn the best strategies for gaining in proficiency.
Those who can already play crib will also be very welcome.
As with the euchre section, players will pay a small extra charge (currently £1 per week) to cover rent, refreshments, playing cards etc.
This section of the group is currently OPEN, so if you are interested, please email via the pigeon.
