Mahjong is a four person Chinese tile game of skill, strategy, and luck, similar to the card game, Rummy. The tiles have three suits, bamboo, dots and cracks. Other tiles include: dragons, winds, flowers, and jokers (wild cards). Each class will start with the beginner lesson so learners are able to review what they have learned the preceding week. Each lesson includes: an explanation of the tiles, an explanation of the card, practice hands, and guided play. Information about play dates and times will be provided to learners who wish to continue after this class is completed.
