Hand and Foot Canasta
Hand and Foot is a game in which each player is dealt two sets of cards - the hand, which is played first, and the foot, which is played when the hand has been used up. Although most people say that Hand and Foot is best played by four people in partnerships, it can also be played by six in two teams of three, or by any number of people playing as individuals.
Girls' Night Out
We meet at a local restaurant once a month for appetizers or dinner and drinks.
Ladies Lunch Bridge
Do you like to play and socialize? Our two groups play on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month, September through May. We start at 9:50 am, break for lunch, and play again until about 2:45 pm. You don't need a partner; we rotate every four hands.
Liverpool Rummy is a popular variation on the basic Contract Rummy game. We meet on the 4th Thursday of each month at 1pm and play to approximately 4:30 pm.
Mexican Train Dominoes
Mexican Train is a game played with dominoes. The object of the game is for a player to play all the dominoes from his or her hand onto one or more chains, or "trains", emanating from a central hub or "station". Loads of fun!
Mah Jongg is an ancient tile game developed in China. We generally meet on Friday afternoons at 1:00 p.m. in players’ homes. New players are welcome and we will happily teach you how to play.
