Join in on the fun playing mahjong!
New to the game? No worries, no experience necessary. Once you RSVP, we will send you the name of our mahjong teacher so you can sign up for classes before you come and play if you want. This can be very helpful. Or, if you are a complete beginner and want to come learn from observing, please feel free to do that as well. We can use more players so do not delay in reaching out to us. The more players the better!
American mahjong is played with four players using tiles stamped with Chinese symbols. The goal of the game is to be the first, by picking and discarding, to match one's tiles to a specific hand from the annually distributed scorecard published by the National Mah Jongg League (NMJL) and American Mah-Jongg Association (AMJA). Scoring is done by matching the points assigned to each pre-determined hand on the annually distributed NMJL card & AMJA card.
