    Default Scrabble and bridge

    Someone mentioned that they would be starting to play scrabble, bridge and other games at La Roca in Sosua next week. Does anyone know the day and time please, as we are always trying to make up a four for bridge.

    not to hijack the thread but i enjoy playing these games online BBO (bridge base online) is an excellent site and you can see when your friends are on it and play together. you can find a game 24/7 and on yahoo games there is literati which is a scrabble game which is fun. not to take away from the social aspects but if in a remote area where not many players can be found it is the next best thing... game on... ben jammin'

    ben - I agree that there are some excellent online games sites which have the benefit of being able to be played at any time, especially when insomnia strikes. I will have a look at BBO.

    Thanks for the information mambodog - sounds fun.

    Thanks for the invitation HB - hopefully I will make it one day but I'm not very confident driving over the mountains. Do you play during the day?

    As well as raising money for a good cause, the afternoons will provide enjoyment for Sosua residents and give them a chance to meet each other at La Roca which has Happy Hour prices during the day.

Starting at 2.00pm until 5.00pm the cost is RD$100 per person and all money goes to buying uniforms so children from poor families can attend school. Drinks are at Happy Hour prices. Make new friends and support a good cause.

    awwwww...i wish someone in Boca Chica liked to play Scrabble or Rumikube. I bring both games with me on every trip and nobody wants to play them.

    As a suggestion for you guys tho. Rumikube would be a good game play. #it is popular in europe etc...and it just involves tiles with numbers...so it is not language specific. Great game!

    Wish you were closer jrzyguy as at the games afternoon today they had several sets of most games and it looks like they can always fit new members in. Rummikub is a great game I agree, and we play it with our German neighbours and it really does bridge the language gap. We had a good laugh this afternoon at La Roca and I look forward to next week - thanks to the organisers.
