American Mah Jongg


We are awaiting guidance from the Governor and local health officials regarding the possible opening of programs for this season. We will update this page as we know more.

6 Bam… pair of green dragons… kong 9 crak… 4 flowers no joker… some of the words you’ll hear during a game of American Mahjongg! Come learn one of the most intriguing games to hit our shores. Originating in China in the 1800’s, Mahjongg is a game of tiles, beautifully painted with old Chinese symbols and pictures, American-ized with English numbers and “joker” tiles. The game draws you in with a little strategy, the visual and physical appeal of the chunky tiles, and the pleasure of mastering the rules of play. Join us to learn the “ins and outs” of a game you’ll want to play for many years to come. 

Participants will need to purchase this Required Paperback Text for homework and in-class participation: “The Beginner’s Guide to American Mahjongg” by Elaine Sandberg, ©2007.
