Mah-jongg

2012-Mah-jongg
Accomplished players and interested participants alike are invited to rattle the tiles and join the fun! Mah-jongg enthusiast Elizabeth Glidden will introduce you to other players  and get you started.  Bring a current Mah-Jongg card and your set if you have one.

“Mah-jongg is played with four players using tiles stamped with Chinese symbols,” said Elizabeth Glidden.  “The goal of the game is to be the first to match your tiles to a specific hand from the National Mah Jongg League's (NMJL) annually distributed scorecard by picking and discarding.  It’s rather like the card game Gin Rummy – only faster! I will provide my own set of Mah-Jongg and have handouts to teach the rules of play.”

Want to be included in the fun?  Email suzanne@dscl.org to receive email reminders each month!  Check the event calendar for dates.
