Details

NOTE: Saturday instead of Sunday!

If you have a Mahjong set please bring it. I'll ask everyone to introduce themselves and tell us what Mahjong experience you have. Assuming there are beginners I'll explain what constitutes a Mahjong set, how to construct a winning hand, and the mechanics game play. This should take 10-20 minutes. The rest of the time we will break into groups of 4 and play Mahjong. Initially we will be playing what I call peasant rules, no points. If people are interested I can discuss strategy. Eventually, as people become accustomed to the game, I'll introduce scoring. Initially we will just identify the scoring elements of the winning hand but eventually groups can decide to require hands have a minimum number of points to declare Mahjong. I'll try to organize tables by level of experience so everyone can be challenged. I will make myself available to answer all questions while we play.
