Belote

Français

Come and join the EuroMayenne group for a game of

BELOTE

After our introduction to the game in Laval in February 2017, many members expressed an interest in playing again, probably regularly.   There were others who wanted to play on that evening but couldn't attend.

So a new group was formed to learn (or improve) how to play this typically French popular card game.

Our first year was a great success!

 

When

We play on the first Friday afternoon of each month.

Come along at 2.15 p.m., for play to start at 2:30.

We have a tea break after an hour, and finish between  4:30 and 5 o'clock.

Who

This group is aimed at both beginners and those who have played before . Each table (you play at tables of 4) will have at least one player who knows what to do.

We normally have 3 or 4 tables.

If the number of people who come is not divisible by four, the odd ones sit next to a full table and either discretely help a beginner (if they know how to play), or watch an "expert" (if they don't know how to play) until there is a break when they can swap round and join in.

 

Cost

It will be completely free to EuroMayenne members but there will be the usual "honesty box" for small contributions towards the tea and biscuits.
