Mahjong is the quintessence to the Chinese, as cricket to the British.
Mahjong is a game of strategy, probability and luck.
Mahjong is an ancient game, which originated in China some 2000 years ago and is still a favourite pastime today.
The game was initially played by the elite in the palaces. The game was then introduced to Britain, USA and Asia in the 1900s.
You will learn the history, the name, the material, the set, the three different suits, the honours suit, the game of Pongs and Chows, the Hands, and the scoring.
Over the two Beginner terms (Level 1 and Level 2), you will learn both Eastern and Western Hands.
After the beginner's classes, you may join our Social class to continue enjoying the game and practising your skills.
