What is Mahjong - can anyone play?

Mahjong is a traditional Chinese game, played by four people around a square table. The game is played with tiles rather than playing cards. The aim is to be the first player to get a complete hand - four sets of three and a pair, or variations of this. The rules for playing and scoring vary a great deal between different areas of China. The EAS holds mahjong afternoons every Tuesday.  All Members are welcome to come along.

The EAS provides mahjong sets, tables and information.
Beginners are specially coached until they feel confident to play independently.
Mahjong is a social and fun game which can be played at all levels from beginner to international competition standard.
There are many sets of rules and variations. The EAS usually plays Shanghai rules.
