    JDogg, Jim Horton, and I are looking to try and start a Chess Game Day each week at Cerulean's in WaterColor. Every Tuesday, maybe around 4:30 or 5:00pm. Just a little something different to do. Anyone else willing to participate? Please let me know so that we can get it started. If there are not enough Chess players, I would still think it would be fun to have a generic game day, where people bring different games for us to play. Anyone???

    Wow, now there's a funn idea, I'd do that for sure when I'm down. Not too great a chess player but I can hold my own in scrabble and backgammon.

    Hey, if not a lot of people show one day, maybe you could bring your laptops and play some of us online ;-) Online Scrabble is fun, I've done that once or twice at games.com..

    Well I don't live there and can't participate, but if I did live there and could participate, I would recommend Texas Hold 'Em. :D

    Can't play chess, but I can play bridge. I'm a champ at computer solitaire.

    If you need an organizer, let me know. Bdarg and I started a chess club at Will's elementary school. I know, shocking, my name and chess mentioned together. ;-) Actually, I don't play, but I can get y'all some cute matching chess t-shirts if you want an official "look".:floor:

    Hearts is a fun game and easy to learn. I'd be up for that.

    Hearts is one of my favorite games. My husband enjoys it too - whenever I throw him the queen, he gets to call me B***H! :lol:

    Since this thread is going way down hill anyway (I cannot believe you guys don't play chess), ktchris, if that is what you thought it was, 30gAy needs to go visit that E.D. thread.

    How do you play? I am uninitiated but not afraid to ask. Must be a deep south game.

    :oops: Sorry SJ, didn't mean to drag your post down, I was just scrolling and had to do a double take, that's all.

    BTW, I do play chess. We have tournaments every year when we go skiing. If I was anywhere close to 30A, I'd love to play you in a match. Maybe next June?
