The Wilton Senior Center has a new card game, Five Crowns, and it’s quite a hit.
On Tuesday, Aug. 18, six senior ladies gathered around a table for a Five Crowns session — the second one held at the senior center.
“It’s fun — easy and fun,” said instructor Nerina Klobas, who introduced the game to the senior center.
“It’s a lot like rummy, but with different cards and wild cards,” said Wiltonian Rita Caruso, who has played Five Crowns for two years.
Aside from Caruso and Klobas, two seniors at the table were learning the game for the first time, while others — like Sonja Drummond, who Caruso said “picked it up quickly” — had just recently learned how to play.
