Mahjong for everyone

By
From page A4 | March 07, 2014 |

In 2010 AARP called American mahjong the “fastest growing game among seniors.” If you are interested in observing, and then learning to play, join the March mahjong tutorials at the Davis Senior Center.

Every Monday, from noon until 4:30 pm, mahjong is played in the Games Room of the Senior Center. During the month of March, the public can observe these Monday games. Players will provide brief explanations of how the game is progressing, and the objectives of the play. If you remember playing mahjong in your youth, come learn the challenges as an adult. If you have never played, this is your time to discover the fascination with the game.

Tutorial days will follow. On Tuesday, March 18, Tuesday, March 25, and Thursday, March 27, from 1 to 4 pm, the mahjong group will provide student centered tutorials for any one who is interested. These tutorials will lead students through the intricacies of the distribution of tiles, strategies to build Mah Jongg hands, and the general play of the game.

The 2014 mahjong year will begin on April 1 and graduates of the tutorials, as well as any experienced players, will be welcome to join the group in Monday play.

If you are interested, you need only show up at any of the Monday mahjong games, or at any of the tutorials, and you will be welcomed into this most pleasant addiction.
