Mah-jong is a tile-based game created during the Qing Dynasty in early 19th century China. Learning to play is a great way to connect with others as you’ll need to negotiate, communicate, and cooperate to play successfully. Luck is a small factor in the game with tactics, observation, and memory being the most important parts to winning.

Learn how to play the game from an experienced player, or join us to find partners of all levels to play with.

Days: Mondays
Time: 10:00am to 11:30am
Location: Victoria Centre, 1911 Quadra St
Cost: $2 M, $5 NM
