Estimations

We meet for 6 consecutive Mondays from 10.00-12.00 at the Cube.

Following a highly successful trial run, there will be a new series of this exciting new card game beginning on Monday 26th February 2018. Meetings will be held for 6 consecutive Mondays. There is a good café on site. Beginners are welcome, the game is easy to learn and you will pick it up fast!

Estimations is a cross between whist and bridge, being more interesting than the former and much less complex than the latter (or solo whist, its closest relation). It would appeal to those who take a light-hearted approach to card playing, and enjoy playing as individuals rather than with partners.

After the cards are dealt players estimate how many tricks they will win: this becomes more difficult as the number of cards dealt out decreases in each round. Play proceeds in the same way as whist, with a point awarded for each trick gained, plus a bonus of ten for an exact call.
Having a ‘BAD’ hand does not preclude anyone from winning. And there are no partners to get mad at!

To find out more please contact me after 20th Feb, or simply come along and give it a try!
