Learn the game you hear so much about (that’s not nearly as involved as bridge!). Originally from China, Mah Jongg is a game of skill, strategy and calculation and involves a certain degree of chance. Played with a set of 136 tiles based on Chinese characters and symbols, 4 players methodically select, pass and discard tiles, each with the hope of creating a legal hand. The DCA provides the tile sets required for play in all Mah Jongg classes.

Supervised Mah Jongg
This class is perfect for those who have completed “Beginning Mah Jongg,” but are nervous to play alone. Our instructor will be on hand to answer questions and offer suggestions.
These classes are not scheduled at the moment. Please contact the DCA should you wish to be notified when this class is next offered.
Regina has been playing Mah Jongg for 40 years, teaching for many of those years, and loves to share the game – which she calls “a cheap form of therapy” – with others.
