Join Donna Knapp at the Library to play or learn to play American MahJong. Mahjong is a game of both skill and luck that originated in China many centuries ago. American mahjong (also sometimes spelled "Mah Jongg" or called "Maajh") is unique from Asian mahjong in several ways. American mahjong utilizes racks, jokers, "Hands and Rules" score cards and has several distinct gameplay mechanics. Although an American mahjong set can be used to play Chinese Mahjong, the rules that we will follow are for the American game.Donna is a retired teacher who lives in East Oakmont. The sessions are free and open to the public. If you already play bring your Mah Jong set and your friends; if you never played, there will always be a beginner's table. It's easy and it's fun.
