This class will teach you how to start playing the American version of this old Chinese game that swept the United States, England, France and Japan in the 1920s and is currently having a renewal of interest. We will learn with the National Mah Jongg League rules, so you can play with anyone in the US. Unlike partner games such as bridge, you play your own hand and won't disappoint a partner. Mah Jongg is usually played with four players and is a relaxing and social game. An ability to pay attention as well as luck and skill are needed to succeed. If you can play gin rummy, you can learn Mah Jongg.
