The popular group meets up each week to play Mahjong, a tile-based game that was developed in China during the Qing dynasty. Commonly played by four players, it’s fast paced, social and great fun.
“We take beginners through to experienced players,” says organiser Sue Chamberlain. “You might join to learn Mahjong, but it’s also a good way to meet a great group of people.” New to the game? Someone will sit with you and teach you the basics. It’s fairly easy to pick up the rules and is very addictive once you get the hang of it! “Mahjong is a challenge to the brain,” says Sue. “And you get to enjoy a traditional part of Asia that you can take home with you.”
These are various days and locations around the island. ANZA Mahjong also offers a Monday evening session.
