Whether you prefer the name, Mahjong, majiang, mah jongg, or ma jong, to name a few, playing this multi-tiled game can be more fun in person than online. Those of you who play regularly, probably even like the nomenclature, “game of a thousand intelligences”.
If you are a card player and enjoy those gatherings, you will catch on quickly and also enjoy the camaraderie of this game. We have a volunteer ready to assist in setting up a “club” for new, and experienced players.
Here’s some advice: according to kaleidoscope, Cultural China’s website: “Have you ever watched people playing Mahjong, and then yearned to join them? Have you ever been battled by the game’s rules? Have you ever considered learning to play? Here’s a secret: Learning to play is easy, learning to win, however, is the tough part! There is only one way to learn to win: Play, play again and then play some more.”
With the help of our volunteer, we are testing the waters for interest in a Ma Jong game playing group. Stop by our coffee hour on Thursday, October 1st at 9:30am to let us know of your interest and to find out more info about Ma Jong. We are willing to start a group on scheduled Thursday mornings if enough individuals are interested. Come let us know what you think.
