Join instructor Dorothy Drennen and learn the exciting game of Mah Jongg.

Mah Jongg is a rummy-like game played with tiles rather than cards. The game is believed to have originated in mid-19th century China and spread to America by the late 1800s. By the early 20th century, there were many versions of Mah Jongg in the United States.

In this course, you will learn about game-play, strategy, tile symbols, winning hands, the use of suits, dealing, rules and more. The American game differs from the Asian game with the use of jokers and exchange of tiles among the players (the “Charleston”). We’ll play with a card listing the hands included for that year by the National Mah Jongg League.
