What we do

Do you enjoy the 'Coffee Break' page in the newspaper with its crosswords and other puzzles? Then this group could be for you. The early focus will be on learning and improving ways to solve cryptic crosswords, but it might lead into a more varied puzzle diet. 
If you have you been frustrated by an inability to solve the clues and have moaned, "I can't do cryptic crosswords!" then we say, "Oh, yes you can!"

Meeting Area: Uplands        Meeting Day: Last Thursday of the month a.m.

What we do

A card game played by two, three or four players, this old traditional game used to be a great pub favourite. If you don't know it you may recognise the special boards with rows of holes used for scoring.  It is easy to pick up and quite addictive – also sociable and fun!

Mahjong

Mahjong is a fascinating Chinese board game for four players, dating from the Qing dynasty. The cost is £1.50 each per session.   We are only teaching the game to play on a social basis at the moment.  We will later on teach you how to score and maybe later on we can then join in with other u3a's in the area for league games. 


Meeting Area: Cwmbwrla        Meeting Day: Tuesday A.M.
