Mah Jong is a game played with tiles, which originated in China, and there are similarities with Rummy. You will find out about pongs, kongs and chows, about wriggling snakes and heavenly staircases. You don’t need to have played before—you’ll soon learn. There are currently vacancies in the Mah Jong group.
