I play Bridge once a week. I also teach Bridge at our local Senior Center. I also play Mah Jong once a week with a group of 12. I like crossword puzzles too!

Hello Sherry,

I also love to play bridge, just picked it up about 3-4 years ago, would love to play with you online, you are a teacher so I can learn a lot from you. Just a thought.

I play word games, hidden object,  puzzle games and several others.  I am an avid crossword and logic problem solver, as well as any puzzles involving math that i find in the variety puzzle magazines.  I like trivia to a degree but not my favorite.

I do the Washington Post and NYT mini crosswords. On my mobile I like Freecell and also periodically pick up a time-waster--currently, these are Project Makeover and some Harry Potter game. I've also done a lot of escape-thee-room online puzzles. I try to imitate the approach I've seen children use: try everything and don't worry so much about rules.
