We are a small group meeting in each other’s houses every Friday morning to play the fascinating game of Mah Jongg, ideal in that it can be played both by novices and seasoned players together, in groups of three or four. A tile-based game of skill, strategy and calculation involving a degree of chance - we don’t gamble, however! - It uses winds, dragons, flowers and seasons and includes games with colourful names such as Four Blessings Hovering Over the Door, Gathering Plum Blossom from the Roof and Plucking the Moon from the Bottom of the Sea. Originating in China several centuries ago and played widely throughout Eastern and South East Asia, it was imported to the West in the 1920s and has seen a recent revival of interest.
We also celebrate traditional Chinese New Year with a meal out. We are currently in the Year of the Dog and the Year of the Pig begins on 15th February 2019. (Beware if you were born in a previous Pig Year; apparently next year may be an unlucky one for you!)
Numbers are limited by the size of our venues.
