Learning how to play Mah-jongg

Thursday, May 16, 2024
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

According to Time Magazine, Mah-jongg is a relatively modern game that was developed in the mid-to-late 1800s, around the Yangtze River Delta. By the end of the 1800s, it was spreading in popularity in China, but mostly only in specific urban centers like Shanghai and Beijing.  But what is it exactly?

Mah-jongg is a Chinese game played, usually by four people, with 136 or 144 rectangular pieces called tiles. The object is to collect winning sets of these tiles, as in card games such as gin rummy.
