I am not much of a game player. You can verify that by talking to my children....who are. But, since I am in a new town....I don't turn down any opportunity to meet new folks
The dealer calls out a playing card. and you cover that card with a crystal (if it's on your board). It is very much like Bingo. Each lady brought a wrapped gifts worth $20. If you win, (by covering a straight line, up, down or diagonally), you get to unwrap a gift. When all of the gifts are opened we had dessert...Then we played again. If you won this time, you got to steal a gift. That was the fun part. I kept stealing a necklace from this one gal and she kept stealing it back. I ended up with it.
I know I know...not a good way to make a friend :) But I couldn't help myself...I wanted the necklace.
