F50 Mah Jong for Beginner

On Mondays, you can see a group of ladies in the library at Springwood engaged in the ancient game of Mahjong, also spelled majiang, mah jongg and numerous other variants. It is commonly played by four players (with some three-player variations found in South Korea and Japan.)

The game and its regional variants are widely played throughout Eastern and South Eastern Asia and have a small but growing following in Western countries, including Australia.

The game is played with a set of 144 tiles based on Chinese characters and symbols. It is a game of skill, strategy, and calculation and involves a degree of chance.





The group meets on Monday between 1:00pm - 2:30pm at the Logan North Library at Springwood.
