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.
Next Meetings: 31 January & 7 February.
