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 email@example.com to receive email reminders each month! Check the event calendar for dates.
