Mah Jong Group

 

This Mah Jong group was formed in October 2015 for both beginners who have not played before, and those who already know the game and have some experience.

In the early stages, a very experienced colleague, Anne Long from Chinnor U3A, is assisting with tutoring the beginners.  Thos who have started playing recently are finding it to be a very interesting and pleasant game to play.

Please indicate whether you are a beginner or have some experience of the game.  Do you already have a Mah Jong set - if so, you may be asked to bring it along occasionally. Don't worry if you don't have one - we should have enough for each session.
 
For those unfamiliar with Mah Jong, it is a game that originated in China in the 19th Century which is played by four players with 144 tiles. Although the tiles are traditionally inscribed with Chinese character and symbols, we have found it quite easy to pick up their meanings. For those familiar with the card game Rummy, you will find similarities between the two games.

 The group meets on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month, AND on the first and third Fridays. When there is a fifth Friday, we also play if there are enough takers. Thus it is possible to play each week if you wish. You may choose which days you wish to play, or just "dip" in and out.

 

Costs

A charge of £2.00 will be made at each session, to cover the cost of hiring the Youth and Community Centre and for refreshments etc. Any surplus will be ploughed back into the group in the future.
