Mah Jongg Classes

“Great classes taught by a very knowledgeable instructor. I’ve taken and enjoyed them all. Now I’m hooked!!”
—Jean R., student

American Mah Jongg is an exciting four-player tile game with Chinese origins. Using 152 tiles depicting Chinese characters and symbols, players pick and discard in turn to form combinations found on the National Mah Jongg League’s annual card of hands. Strategy, skill and luck are needed to be the first player to complete a hand and declare “Mah Jongg!” The DCA provides tile sets for all classes.

Mah Jongg classes will be listed here as they become available.

“Donna does a terrific job introducing Mah Jongg. Her enthusiasm is infectious! I am very grateful to the DCA for providing these classes.”
—Shelley S., student

“Donna is a gifted teacher. She teaches the basics of Mah Jongg in a well-structured manner. She also builds on a player's game through Guided Play sessions, new card classes, and tournament play. With Donna, players are always improving.”
