Mah Jong 2 -
Introducing Mah Jong
via Zoom


Could you be a future recruit to our Mahjong group? Since our players
last got together for a few hands of Mahjong, we have had a number
of players moving away so we have room in our group for beginners.

We would like to give anyone interested a chance to get to know this
intriguing 19th century game of tiles. You'd learn the basics to get you
started, enabling you to enjoy playing with us.

The game itself is very easy to pick up and has similarities to rummy. The intricacies of learning to deal the tiles takes a little longer, but beginners needn’t worry, everyone mucks in to help and it is mainly a game of luck and a small amount of strategy.

Should anyone want any further information, please contact Linda

Please contact the Group Leader if you are interested in playing this fascinating game.

The group has sorely missed our weekly “get togethers” to play
Mahjong. As we could be over eight households and sit closely
round a table, the Covid restrictions have curtailed play. Realistically this may continue for some time to come!! But there has been a light for us and we are now holding some Zoom meetings to play Mahjong
again. We are very rusty!!!!

We had a visitor last year who wished to learn to play and just
before Christmas she sent information regarding a book on how to
play together remotely:
“How to Play MahJong Remotely” by Peter Gregory
ISBN 9798668922994

We have now had two successful sessions, after a few practice
runs to iron out the vagaries of Zooming. The game is played with
some minor changes and each player has a set laid out in their
own home in view of the camera
(as pictured on the right).

Mah Jong 2

Activity

Still proving popular, our group of Mah Jong players continues to meet up to enjoy a morning of friendly banter and a few hands of Mah Jong; the real deal, no computers!!!. The game is similar to rummy but played with tiles, it is a game of luck and a little skill.

The basics are easy to learn, which means beginners and experienced players can therefore play together.
