Bridge Boosts Brain Power at PVE

Some of us gave it up after college or played sporadically with other couples while our children were asleep. Even if you haven’t played in years, the game comes back to you, just like riding a bicycle.

Bridge is a game that many of a “certain generation” learned from watching their parents play or taking lessons before entering college since that was how down time was spent in their dorms.

It keeps your mind active and can be one of the last things you forget as you age. That’s why PVE sponsors a social bridge game twice a week in our Card Room. Foursomes are put together on a first-come first-served basis. Everyone is welcome.

For those who crave a little more competition, we meet twice a month for duplicate bridge. Duplicate bridge has the reputation of being a much more serious game than social bridge, but we’re quite easy and fun to play with. You and your partner play the same hands as everyone else and the couple receiving the most points on their hands wins. While some may prefer finding their own partner, we can usually find a partner for you too.

It’s all about a little friendly competition and  exercising our brain power.
