Chinese Mah Jongg is basically a card game played with tiles instead of cards. The tiles have suits, flowers, seasons, winds and dragons. It is easy to learn but the intrigue and skill of the game improve with time, especially the scoring. One component is crucial to the game . . . Luck! Newcomers Club Chinese Mah Jongg is played twice a month, on Thursday afternoons, in various locations. We usually play with 4 players per table, but it’s also possible to play with 3 or 5.
