Mah Jongg classes

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.
