Canasta, Rummikub, and Backgammon

This group combines the activities of the former, Canasta and Rummikub groups.

We meet at Birch Hill Community Hall on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month between 2pm and 4pm.

New members are very welcome and we are happy to teach you any of the games if you haven’t played before.

Rummikub A game for 2 to 4 players based on the popular card game of Rummy but using 106 tiles instead of a pack of cards.

Canasta  A card game for 2, 3 or 4 people that can be played as an individual or with a partner. The game is similar to Rummy where you collect numbered cards. Canasta is an easy game to learn with just enough rules and strategies to make it challenging but not too demanding.  The aim of the game is to score as many points as possible.

Backgammon We are slowly introducing Backgammon to the group and would particularly welcome anyone who can play or would like to learn.
