Games & quiz groups


Canasta

Canasta is one of the many games of the Rummy family and is popular all over the world.  It is easy to learn and extremely exciting, but at the same time its strategy is complex enough to interest serious players.   It can be played by 2, 3 or 4 players.  In this group we play with 3 or 4 players.  We meet in the Upper Room on the first and third Wednesday afternoons of the month from 2 pm - 5 pm.  New members, both those wishing to learn and experienced players, are welcome.

Mah-jong



This group is now run by Barnstaple U3A and meets on 1st, & 3rd Weds at 1:45pm at The Annexe, Fremington Parish Hall.  Mah-jong is a game of Chinese origin which has been popular in the west for many years. It is a game played with tiles (instead of cards) of various designs usually by four people. During our sessions we play basic mah-jong as well as "special hands".  New members, both those wishing to learn and experienced players, are welcome.
