Interest in Saturday Cards is growing ,with two new players at the last session. It is such a fun way to keep the brain busy, trying to remember Trumps (not the one in USA), Bowers and Jokers. U3A members are most welcome to come and join in.
Playing 500 is such a fun game. Apart from the playing of the game with the aim to be the first to achieve 500 points, laughter is part of the package on the day. The two-hour session goes so quickly and every one has a tale to tell on what they should have done to win the game. It is also good for ‘brain training’ trying to work out what cards each player has in their hands.
As there was no session on Easter Saturday, an extra session has been scheduled on Saturday 10th April from 1.30 - 3.30 pm. Look forward to seeing you then and at our next regular sessioon on Saturday 17th April at 1.30pm.
The card game of 500 is a simple social game to play with groups of 4 players or more.
Playing cards is a fun way of enjoying other's company without physical exertion. Our U3A group of card players has many laughs and fun at our sessions with easy to understand rules.
Players do not have to have had previous experience as you will be taught how to play by others present.
We are a friendly and welcoming group where the focus is on having fun in a mildly competi-tive environment. There is no gambling or money involved.
The game is flexible and can be configured to accommodate any number of participants. This allows for flexibility if you cannot come along on a regular basis.
