Playing a Fun Game

Posted by:

 

The game of Mah Jongg is fun.  Whether you win or not is based on your own skills but also there is a factor of luck. It is based on who you play with and it is all about making the right decisions at the right time. Will the tiles you need come your way at the right time or will players at the table keep the tiles you need for their own hands?

There has been talk in the FaceBook groups and we have received some questions on what do you do when you have someone at your table that you do not want to play with? What do you do when someone at your weekly game is constantly slow, constantly holding up the game ...

It looks small, almost like a travel set.  I don’t think I could bring myself to let people touch ...
