Community-Led Lifelong Learning: Mah Jongg
Tuesday, January 28, 2020 - 1:00pm
For Adults

Join us Tuesdays from 1:00 - 2:30 pm as we learn to play the exciting game of Mah Jongg. You will learn American style Mah Jongg in the “immersion method” which means we start playing the first day and you learn as you play. If you know Gin Rummy, you’ll have a basic idea of the goal of making melds. If not, you’ll soon get the hang if it. Most of all, it’s a fun game and one in which the goal is to enjoy the learning process.
