LEARN HOW TO PLAY MAHJONG 101
Mahjong is a tile game of both skill and luck that originated in China many centuries ago and was brought to the West in the 1920’s.
Mahjong is played with four people seated around a table with 144 domino like pieces or tiles marked in suits, counters, and dice. The object being to build a winning combination of pieces. The first person to match a hand of 14 tiles and thus “call mahjong” ends the game.
Barbara Bush will be teaching the American version of this fun tile game. She will break the game down into its pieces and parts and then quickly put it all together in a gaming format. Plan to be playing by the third class!
Class will be held on Tuesdays, January 8 – January 29, 2019, from 1:00 – 3:00 pm. Class size is limited, so call or stop by to reserve your spot!
