Mahjong or ma jiang
We had a mahjong evening tonight. Liz got a set for Christmas and has been to a couple of classes recently. So we invited over our Aussie friends, Colin & Vanessa, and a teacher, and off we went. There's a lot of mysterious ritual around it and the 70-odd tiles are a bit bewildering at first, but actually it's quite like rummy. Oh, and it's called ma jiang here. Whatever, it was fun, despite not winning. We'll be setting up Bridge clubs next.
