TWOQC Members Board the Mexican Train

Jane Gold

On July 11, 24 The Women Of Quail Creek (TWOQC) members had the opportunity to find out how to play Mexican Train. Easy to learn, Mexican Train Dominoes is a game that combines just the right mix of skill and luck and can be enjoyed by all ages. (In fact, it’s a great game to play with visiting grandchildren!)

There are many groups right here in Quail Creek who play regularly, building friendships that are lasting and treasured.

The event was for beginners and experienced players alike. There was at least one experienced player at each table to help the “newbies” with the rules of play.

Thank you to all our Mexican Train “conductors” who helped make this event so much fun! Special thanks to Deb Robinson, Pat Holmes, Becky Ashin, and Pam Hartwell-James for serving as Mexican “trainers,” introducing this fun game to newbies who had never played before.

Several participants asked after the event whether it would be possible to play every month. The answer is yes! TWOQC members need to look for an announcement on the TWOQC GroupWorks page as to the time, date, and place.
