Mah Jongg

It’s not just a game! Mah Jongg is definitely a social outing where laughs and

commiserations are shared. In part, it’s the camaraderie, but there is something else,

something unexplainable about the game, that bonds people. Some have summed up the

version of the centuries old Chinese tile game as a, ‘rummy-like game played with tiles

rather than cards.’ With unique rules and personal strategies one keeps to oneself. The

goal is to match your “hand” with one of several different types of “hands” on a National

Mah Jongg League card. There are 152 tiles played in one game, each player starting

with 13 tiles. The player’s tile combination constantly changes because he or she either

picks new tiles or, takes those discarded by another player. To win, a player must match

up 13 tiles and then pick a 14th tile to complete the “hand.” “Defensive playing,” where

you try to figure out what someone else is playing and hold those tiles back is part of

the game. And another interesting aspect is you don’t play with a partner. If you make a

wrong decision, it’s your wrong decision. If you win, it’s all because of you! Once you

learn the game, it becomes addictive. So if you’re looking for a fun, stimulating, social

game, Mah Jongg is just the game for you. The group meets every Wednesday at 9:30

a.m. at South Iredell Senior Center. Come learn Mah Jongg according to the National

Mah Jongg League rules, for the beginner or experienced player.

 

Men’s Billiards

Every Tuesday at 9 a.m. come join the guys in a good game of pool. It’s a fun game that

can bring out the competitiveness in everyone. It’s also a great way to stay in practice for

Senior Games. The billiards room is available to senior adults as an open activity through

out the week. Call for specific times.

 

Men’s Cards

Gather up those good old boys and come join in a game of cards the 1st, 3rd. & 5th

Tuesday of every month at 2 p.m. Bring some good jokes and your best poker face!
