In Asia, Mah Jong is also popularly played as a gambling game. In the game, each player is dealt thirteen tiles in a hand. On their turn, players draw a tile and discard one, with the goal of making four melds (three of a kind or a run of three) and one pair. Winning comes “on the draw”, by drawing a new or discarded tile that completes the hand. Thus a winning hand actually contains fourteen tiles.
We are a small friendly group who welcome newcomers to join us. It is easier to play than it looks, so why not give it a try?
Thanks to The Drama Group moving their meetings we are now able to have the room on alternate Fridays, which means we can meet more often.
We will be having our first meeting since the pandemic on Friday 2 July. All members of U3A are welcome.
This is dependent on the Governments Lockdown procedures.
