Cards, Crosswords, and Tiles
Our Games classes provide fun opportunities to socialize while keeping your mind active and engaged. Bridge, Canasta, Crossword Puzzles, and Mah Jongg courses are scheduled throughout the fall with both in-person and online instruction options at a variety of playing levels, times and days of the week.

Still to come this term, Mike McNamara has six more classes in the bridge series Keeping Up with Conventions and Strategies for Play of Hand (Courses 10855 through 10867). Classes meet over Zoom on Wednesdays at 11 am with each session devoted to a different topic.

Next week, crossword enthusiasts can pick up some tricks of the trade in the Crossword Coach Workshop (Course 10878) from Steven Manin on Thursday, October 21, 2021, at 5 pm.

On Tuesday, October 19, 2021 at 12:45 pm, another section of Beginner Canasta (Course 10880) begins with Emma Foster and Amy Katz. Starting on November 30, 2021, they will offer three separate Tuesday morning classes on Canasta Strategies (Courses 10846 to 10848) that may be taken together or independently.

In November, Mah Jongg: Supervised Play classes begin on Wednesday mornings (Course 10727) with Anne Wiesel or Thursday afternoons (Course 10650) with Katie Goldberg.
