My students are always very inquisitive. Some questions are easier to answer than others such as those that are clear cut about Mah Jongg, with right and wrong answers, a definitive yes or no. In the past few weeks, I have received a flurry of inquiries that are ...

Posted by:

Most Mah Jongg enthusiasts are very excited about the 2015 National Mah Jongg League new card launching. However, if you are a new player(even just learning), this may be a dreaded event.

The important thing to remember, is that you are playing Mah Jongg. There are no Mah Jongg police that will swoop in and confiscate your set or disband your game, ...

To Sticker or Not to Sticker; that is the question!

Some of you may have seen my earlier post called “Thank you Bob Stern” which talked about a vintage set that Bob’s mother, Eleanor, used to play with, that he gave to me to continue the tradition.

Last week we played with it.  And it was grand to play with.  At the suggestion of Johnni L (a gal in California, who owns 400 MahJongg Sets!) we used the 8 Flowers that are ...

An Old Mah Jongg Set is Reborn

Last week our local newspaper highlighted www.MahJonggmentor.com and the partners who created it.  (If you didn’t get to see it, check out our facebook page or in our “testimonial” section of the website to read the article).  We’ve had some great feedback from it, and many new members join our site, but there is one person especially that I want to thank.

Bob Stern lives in my home town and contacted me after seeing the article, ...

More MahJongg New Year’s Resolutions – #1 – Tournament Play!

Posted by:

 

Are you Ready?

One of our www.mahjonggmentor.com  January newsletter articles reflected on New Year’s Resolutions, and related them to suggestions on resolutions about your MahJongg game.  They were great suggestions that Marcy made, but then, I saw a quote that is more like what my New Year’s Resolutions usually are:   “A one week to do list”.

Well here we are in our second week, and MahJongg is still on my “to do list”/resolutions.  I love improving myself – losing weight, ...

Do you play to challenge yourself or Play to Win?

Posted by:

I just got off of the NMJL on line site playing quick games for an hour or so.  I enjoy playing on line while sitting with my husband as he watches football.  We’re together, but both enjoying our respective games!

As I continued to play, I started to think about some of the hands I was playing.  Often while playing in our weekly MJ club, I win a few games and then start playing harder hands to challenge myself.  So instead ...

Embracing your Mah Jongg Personality

Posted by:

comedytragedy

Believe it or not, your personality traits impact how you play the game of Mah Jongg.

Are you a pleaser?  Are you aggressive/offensive minded?  Are you indecisive?  Are you defensive?

These are just a few questions to ask yourself.  There is no good or bad Mah Jongg personality.

However, if you know yourself, maybe embrace those tendencies.

The defensive person though they are interested in winning, can become obsessed with ruining their opponents hands.  Many times this ...
