  • Damien M.

    I have 1 Mahjong table and 2 sets of tiles. 1 set has english numbers in the corners. Just need another table.

    September 2, 2013

  • shinie

    Wow the spots filled up quickly! Will you organize another one?

    Darn. I joined hoping to get in on this event but it's full already. Hope it'll happen again sometime

    May I offer a suggestion? Perhaps you could include more than 8 people and have rotations going so people take turns playing MJ and socializing on the side as well. That way you won't need to have exact multiples of 4. In my experience, having extras who know how to play helping people from behind is better than having the others in the same game looking at your tiles

    I can totally picture the people on the side playing Big 2 or something too... for fun, of course =p Just an idea

    At any rate, I:
    -know how to play HK style
    -SORT OF know JP style
    -would like to learn TW style

    Hi Yan and Irene, just a kind reminder. :-) Remember to indicate your mahjong experience for the quota of 4 experienced players and 4 newbies fills up quickly.

    August 26, 2013
