Military Mah Jongg

Military Mah Jongg

Have you heard of the ancient  Chinese game of Mah Jongg?  Military Mah Jongg is a similar, standardized version created by the Air Force Officers’ Wives Club.  This way the same game could be played all over the world wherever you were stationed.  It is a slow paced, enjoyable game, and will be taught at introductory level.  The rule book can be purchased for $5 on the first day of class, provided by the instructor Kathryn Kabat.  It costs $17 for residents and $22 for non-residents.  There will be 4 classes from 2 pm to 3:30 pm Tuesdays, starting on January 31st.
