Backgammon is one of the oldest known board games. Its history can be traced back nearly 5,000 years. It’s a two-player game where each player has fifteen pieces (checkers) which move between twenty-four triangles (points) according to the roll of two dice. The objective of the game is to be first to bear off, i.e. move all fifteen checkers off the board. There isn’t a U3A group at the moment, carrying on this ancient tradition, so we thought we’d try to form one. If there’s enough interest, we’ll have an initial planning meeting and then meet in group members’ houses. We live in Woodseats. All levels of skill would be welcome. One of us is an experienced player; the other an absolute beginner. We are: Mike Murfin: 63 Firbeck Road, Sheffield S8 ONF Tel: 07918874779 Peter Hulse: 25 Harbord Road, Sheffield S80BB Tel: 07779336029; email@example.com. Please get in contact.

Welsh Duolingo Extra
Proposed start: October 2021, initially on Zoom. For anyone who is learning Welsh by Duolingo. How would the course work? It would try to add things to Duolingo to make it an even better way to learn Welsh! Such as… 1) Sharing your Welsh with real people! 2) Discussing things! Such as when you are sure you are right and Duolingo has maybe got it wrong. 3) Explaining the background to Welsh - and some useful grammar. 4) Talking about what’s really important and what isn’t. What about mutations!!! 5) Doing optional extension work such as writing and presenting short pieces of Welsh – putting our Duolingo Welsh to work! 6) Listening to OUR Welsh voices as well as Duolingo’s. 7) Trying different ways to use Duolingo.
