Card Games


Come and join the EuroMayenne


Unfortunately this group has ceased due to lack of participants.

After our introduction to the game in Laval in February 2017, many members expressed an interest in playing again, probably regularly.   So a new group was formed to learn (or improve) how to play this typically French popular card game.

In 2019 we added Tarot as an option and we now offer these two card games.


If you have never played before, don’t be shy – someone will show you how.

This group is aimed at both beginners and those who have played before.  Each table will have at least one player who knows what to do.

For Belote you play at table of 4 and for Tarot at tables of 4 or 5

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.


We play on the first Friday afternoon of each month, when possible.  Occasionally it has to be on the second Friday – check the calendar.

Come along at 2:15pm, for play to start at 2:30pm.

We have a tea break after an hour and finish between 4:30pm  and 5:15pm.

We play at La Maison du Quartier des Fourches, Laval, in the upstairs room, accessed from the side facing a playground.

It will be completely free to EuroMayenne members but there will be the usual “honesty box” for small contributions towards refreshments.
