Mah-jong – beginners welcome

The game of Mah-Jong is similar to the Western card game of rummy. It is a game of skill, strategy and calculation and involves a degree of chance. The game is played with 144 tiles based on Chinese characters and symbols. Estimates of the age of the game vary but some claim it dates to the time of Confucius 551-479.

The word Mah-Jong means “The Sparrows” and refers to the clinking of the tiles as they are shuffled face downwards on the table.

The Ravenshead U3A Mah-Jong group meet in the Brammer Room at 1.30 pm on the lst and 3rd Tuesday of every month and costs £1.50 per session. Beginners and/or those with absolutely no knowledge are very welcome to join us and discover for yourself what this all this talk of dragons, winds and flowers is all about! No experience is necessary but, be warned, it can be very addictive!

(if you have your own Mah Jong set, please bring it along)
