Mah Jongg Mavens
'Mah Jongg' is a Chinese word that
interprets as, ‘clattering sparrow’, ‘flax
sparrow’ or even, ‘hemp bird’. This is due
to the fact that when the Mah Jongg tiles
are being mixed they create musical sounds
suggestive of the noise sparrows squabbling
over strewn food crumbs make.
Combining strategy and luck, American
“Mah Jongg” offers an intellectual
challenge, while playing with the beautiful
Mah Jongg tiles offers tactile enjoyment.
We meet weekly on Tuesdays from 1pm to
3pm at The Placitas Café.
