This is getting quite addictive! We love our Mahjong and we think you should try it too. Join us for a game of strategy and wit, and experience this old traditional game of Mahjong.

Mahjong is a strategy game that originated in China. It's similar to rummy, but it's played with tiles instead of cards. Generally, you play with 4 people. The goal is to form 4 sets or sequences and a pair, creating Mahjong!
Bring your thinking hats :)
