Mah Jongg ~ Day & Evening

Mah Jongg for Beginners
One bam..two crack! Never heard those words? In this course you’ll not only learn what they mean, but will discover an exciting game that is experiencing a resurgence in popularity. When you take this class, you will learn from square one. Or should I say tile one! This primer is very basic and will have you playing in no time. You will learn rules of the game as sanctioned by the National Mah Jongg League. Please bring the National Mah Jongg League card to the first class. If you own a Mah Jongg set bring it to class (don’t run out and buy one). Come join me to learn this entertaining, social and most enjoyable game. Instructor Sybl Falik started playing Mah Jong as a young mother, as a way to socialize. Quickly Mah Jong became a passion, and she used this game to meet friends by teaching the game to women. I hope you will develop a love for this game as I have.

Mah Jongg Mixer
For participants who have learned to play Mah Jongg. Are you new in the area? Recently retired? Want to make new friends? Learned how to play Mah Jongg and don’t know where to go to play? Need to improve your skills or learn new strategies? From years of teaching Mah Jongg, I’m always asked, “How do I get into a game?”. So what I’m trying to do for you is get a group going of people that have a knowledge of Mah Jongg, but need to meet people in order to play. Sybl Falik will supervise the games and help with new strategies.
