Board and Card Games Overview

We aim to provide members with the opportunity to play Backgammon, Scrabble and other similar mind-challenging board games and also hope to run card games in the future. The sessions are friendly, and though we sometimes get excited if we win, the real joy and the pleasure is in the taking-part!

See below for more information about Backgammon and Scrabble sessions.

Ther is no additional charge for the board games groups. 

Backgammon

The backgammon group meets every Tuesday morning at 11.00am and runs for between an hour and 90 minutes or so. The aim of the group is for members to learn and improve their backgammon play, and to engage in friendly competition. Jules, our organiser, has been playing backgammon for over 30 years and has significant tournament experience gained mainly in the 1980's. Though he describes his current standard as "rusty", he's keen to get more people to start playing backgammon and taking them on to an intermediate or expert level.

Please note that this group is as much for complete beginners as more experienced players.

Scrabble

Get out your dictionaries, memorise some interesting 2 letter words you've never heard of before and come along and play the ever-popular game of Scrabble. It might be friendly, but there's also an element of competition to see who can make the best and highest scoring words. This group meets every Tuesday morning starting at 10.00am and will normally go on until a game has been completed. If more than 4 people turn up, a second game will take place too.

This group is currently looking for a leader/host.
