Mah Jong ~ Day & Evening

Mah Jong for Beginners
One bam..two crack! Never heard those words? In this course you’ll not only learn what they mean, but will discover an exciting game that is experiencing a resurgence in popularity. When you take this class, you will learn from square one. Or should I say tile one! This primer is very basic and will have you playing in no time. You will learn rules of the game as sanctioned by the National Mah Jong League. Please bring the National Mah Jongg League card to the first class. If you own a Mah Jongg set bring it to class (don’t run out and buy one). Come join me to learn this entertaining, social and most enjoyable game. Instructor Sybl Falik started playing Mah Jong as a young mother, as a way to socialize. Quickly Mah Jong became a passion, and she used this game to meet friends by teaching the game to women. I hope you will develop a love for this game as I have.
