About this course:

Mah-Jongg is a game of both skill and luck that originated in China many centuries ago and was brought to the West in the 1920s. It is played with four players seated around a table. Tiles are shuffled, die are cast, and rituals involving the allocation of tiles and then the exchange of tiles begin. The first person to match a hand of 14 tiles and thus "call mah-jongg" ends the game, whereupon tiles are scored and a winner is declared. This course introduces the beginner to the basic rules and simple strategies. Each player must purchase a mah-jongg card from the National Mah-Jongg League at their website: www.nationalmahjonggleague.org before the beginning of class. The large size card is highly recommended for beginners. Learn to play this enjoyable, social, and thought provoking game!
