Games and Cards
Games and cards have not be available since the COVID shut down. But great news! Some are starting again! Of course they are starting with limited capacity and you must wear a mask…but fun is starting again!
♦ BRIDGE (In-Person)
♦ PINOCHLE (In-Person)
These activities are currently suspended but will start again soon:
♦ Puzzle Table ……… Free
The act of putting together jigsaw puzzles is very good for the brain. It helps with hand-eye coordination, builds visual-perceptual skills, and encourages problem-solving skills. Puzzles are started by one person, worked on by multiple people, and completed by others. Current speed is about one 1,000 piece puzzle each day. This group welcomes the donation of new (complete) 500 to 1,500 piece puzzles. Donate puzzles in the Bookstore Donation Box.
♦ Chicago Bridge ……… $1
Chicago, also known as Four-deal Bridge and Short Bridge, is a form of contract bridge and a variation of rubber bridge in which one or more sets of four deals are played and scored.
♦ Cribbage ……… Free
Cribbage, or crib, is a card game originated in England, traditionally for two players, but commonly played with three, four or more, that involves playing and grouping cards in combinations which gain points. It is played in clockwise direction with 52 French deck cards for about 15-30 minutes and requires strategy, tactics and counting skills.

Contract bridge, or simply bridge, is a trick-taking card game using a standard 52-card deck. In its basic format, it is played by four players in two competing partnerships, with partners sitting opposite each other around a table.
