Mah Jong

Harriet Appleby; Tel 07773 623655; ha@blurrededges.co.uk
Wednesdays, 3pm – 5pm at The Hare & Hounds, Burnley Road, Todmorden, OL14 8EA.


The group is nearly 2 years old, with regular weekly attendances of 10 – 12 members.  There are many variations of the winning combinations of 14 tiles out of 144 tiles, so the challenge remains. However experienced the player, it’s a combination of chance and skill, also speed of thought now that we’ve imposed time constrictions on our game!  It’s a game that has many variations of its rules, and we’re beginning to think about how our rules might reflect Tod U3A.

Beginners are welcome and if you’re interested, please contact Harriet for more details. We play the U3A British version of the game. There are usually 3 tables of 4 players, and the venue works very well, tables and chairs are reserved for us; we’re ‘curtained off’ upstairs, so it’s nice and private.

1st Anniversary Celebration
14 members were able to attend our 1st anniversary lunch (excellent service and good menu from Wetherspoons), followed by some lively exchanges of Mah Jong tiles.

One of these pictures shows Jean Pearson with her winning hand – that happens to be called ‘Unique Wonder’ – most appropriate and well done, Jean!
