Crown & Anchor lessons on offer at Harbour Nights
Tourists will get the chance to learn how to play Crown and Anchor at Harbour Nights this evening.
The popular dice game, a major attraction at Cup Match, was traditionally played by Royal Navy sailors, British merchant marines and fishing fleets in the 18th and 19th centuries.
This evening’s tutorial will be hosted by Hattie Armstrong near Calypso on Front Street using “monopoly-style money”.
Kendaree Burgess, Executive Director of Bermuda Chamber of Commerce said: “This game of Crown and Anchor is as much a part of Cup Match as cricket, and knowing the rules of play will put you in better standing.
“Every year the Chamber looks to improve on the entertainment and this is just another activity we feel will engage both locals and tourists.”
