Mah-jongg! Mysterious? Maybe? Fun? Definitely!
Accomplished players and interested participants alike are invited to
rattle the tiles and join the fun every Wednesday of
each month from 1 – 4 PM in the Dripping Springs Community Library
Meeting Room. Mah-jongg enthusiast Elizabeth Glidden will introduce you
to other players and get you started. Bring a current Mah-Jongg card
and your set if you have one.
“Mah-jongg is played with four players using tiles stamped with Chinese symbols,” said Elizabeth Glidden. “The goal of the game is to be the first to match your tiles to a specific hand from the National Mah Jongg League's (NMJL) annually distributed scorecard by picking and discarding. It’s rather like the card game Gin Rummy – only faster! I will provide my own set of Mah-Jongg and have handouts to teach the rules of play.”
Want to be included in the fun? Email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive email reminders each month!
