• A Mah Jongg set (tiles, racks and dice). The group organizer will bring 1-2 sets to each meetup. As our group grows, it would be great if members with their own sets can bring one as well. If you want to buy your own set, they run roughly $100 for the tiles, racks and carrying case. A great source for sets is wherethewindsblow.com (http://wherethewindsblow.com/).
• Enthusiasm and patience. It takes a while to learn how to play Mah Jongg, but it's definitely worthwhile. It never gets boring and will give you years of enjoyment! Some members are new to Mah Jongg, and we'll help them learn the rules and get practice to hone their skills.
