Texas 42 at HPL

Texas 42 - a dominoes game similar in style to bridge and spades - is coming to the Huntsville Public Library at 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. on Monday, April 3rd. Studies show playing dominoes can be beneficial for the mind as attention to detail and strategy are essential to play.  So come to the Community Room each week and strategize your winning moves. We’ll supply the dominoes and refreshments. Please register here or call Mary at 936-291-5471 for more information. Games will be played weekly if 8 or more players register.
