As I observe the Mah Jongg clubs around the country, it is interesting to see that the youth of today on college campuses are playing Riichi (non-American) Mah Jongg. Just like most of us, they have standing weekly games and have become fast and furious friends with their new playmates after meeting over this great game!
It is such a shame to think that the next generation of American Mah Jongg players won’t be here until they reach their 40s or later.
I don’t want to sound melodramatic or anything, but I find this very sad! Why don’t the “kids” like this game we love so? How do we cultivate this next generation?
I am interested in your comments/suggestions.Share
