Mah Jongg
Information Sheet
We play Mah Jongg on Monday evenings beginning at 6:00 PM. If you don't know how to play please contact Linda Clark or Cheryl McClain and they will help get you started! Since this game may be unfamiliar to you here is a brief history.

This game was first played by the ruling class of China and dates back to the time of Confucius. In 1937 the National Mah Jongg League was founded so that all players would be playing the same hands and by the same rules. This game is played with ceramic tiles and each person uses a playing card that lists the 52 possible hands. The playing card is changed yearly so that the game remains exciting for the players of this game.
