American Mah Jongg

We hope to run this program again in Spring 2020, please check back.

6 Bam… pair of green dragons… kong 9 crak… 4 flowers no joker… some of the words you’ll hear during a game of American Mahjongg! Come learn one of the most intriguing games to hit our shores. Originating in China in the 1800’s, Mahjongg is a game of tiles, beautifully painted with old Chinese symbols and pictures, American-ized with English numbers and “joker” tiles. The game draws you in with a little strategy, the visual and physical appeal of the chunky tiles, and the pleasure of mastering the rules of play. Join us to learn the “ins and outs” of a game you’ll want to play for many years to come. 

Participants will need to purchase this Required Paperback Text for homework and in-class participation: “The Beginner’s Guide to American Mahjongg” by Elaine Sandberg, ©2007.
