Make the first step and learn this game because you’ll benefit from it for a lifetime.

Contract Bridge (Bridge): Contract bridge is a trick-taking game using a standard deck of 52 playing cards. It is played by four players in two competing partnerships, with partners sitting opposite each other around a table.

Chinese Chess: This game is a battle of wits between two armies. To achieve victory, you need to have patience, composure and serious tactical thinking among many other great qualities that a person has.

International Chess (Chess): Being one of the world's most popular game, chess is played by millions worldwide. "To see the infinity within the finite, that's beauty." ~ Louis Chin, 2007.

Reversi (Othello): Othello is an abstract, two-player strategy game played on an 8x8, 64-square board. The objective is to end the game with more discs of your own colour face up.

Weiqi (Go): Weiqi uses the most elemental concepts -- line and circle, black and white -- combining them with simple rules to generate subtle strategies and complex tactics that stagger the imagination.

The culture of our club can be described as friendly and recreational. We play, laugh and have fun together. No matter what your skill level is, feel free to join us since we play for fun instead of competition. There is no limit for the number of members that we take in each year.
