Learn to Play Mah Jongg

Mah Jongg is a game of both skill and luck that involves strategically matching tiles. The excitement of the game lies in the decisions that you will constantly have to make. Is it preferable to discard a tile and thus gain an advantage, or would it be more prudent to stay with a decent hand? Once you learn basic skills and strategies, you will be on your way to a fun and enjoyable time with other Mah Jongg enthusiasts. Registration deadline: January 10. Min. 3. Max. 5.
