Event Description:
WHAT IS MAH-JONGG? - Class Limit 16
 Ann Powell, 8 Sessions, Mondays, September 17 - November 5
 
Mah-Jongg is a game that originated in China and is similar to the Western card game rummy.  It is a game of skill, strategy, and calculation and involves a degree of chance. The game is played with a set of 144 tiles based on Chinese characters and symbols. Three or four players play the game using numbered tiles.
During those first years after its introduction a real craze developed around Mah-Jongg, but like all fashions it came and went. However, recently a growing number of people are realizing the intellectual challenge Mah-Jongg possesses and the beauty and excitement of the game itself. Come learn and play. This class will lead you step by step into the wonderful world of Mah-Jongg.   In order to provide the necessary materials, students must register for this class no later than September 10.  There will be an $8 materials fee collected the first day of class.
 
After living in various places: Pittsburgh, PA; Spartanburg, SC; Upper Saddle River, NJ; Chicago, IL; Charleston, SC and Franklin, NC, Ann made the retirement decision to live in Blairsville, GA in 2017.  Ann learned how to play Mah-jongg 10 years ago.  While growing up in the Pittsburgh area, Ann did see and hear the tiles “clickity, clickity” on the tables while her friend’s parents played Mah-jongg. Never did she ever think she would one day learn to play and teach this exciting game.
