It's takes a certain level of concentration and there is strategyy involved, but you can still enjoy yourself and socialize to some extent during the game. Typically the game is played with four people, but it can also be played with three.
The object of the game is to be the first player to use 14 tiles to make a mah jongg hand, one of many which are printed on a card. Once a year, a new mah jongg card comes out, so you play with this same card throughout the year. Some people even take their mah jongg card with them on a cruise, hoping to get a game going with others on board.
I enjoy teaching mah jongg very much and delight in seeing others appreciate the game as much as I do. I just completed teaching a series of four classes with a group of six lovely ladies in Litchfield Park, located west of Phoenix.
If you enjoy games, you might want to look into mah jongg.
Check with your community center, library, senior center,
golf club, or online to see if there are any groups in your area.
