Mahjong

Group Leader: Willie Webster
West Lothian 50+ Network
Meet: Thursdays at 2.00 – 4.30pm at Rosemount Gardens Complex, Bathgate

Mahjong is a tile-based game which was developed in China in the Qing dynasty and has spread throughout the world since the early 20th century. It is commonly played by four players and is similar to the card game rummy. It is a game of skill, strategy, and calculation and involves a degree of chance.

The game is played with a set of 144 tiles based on Chinese characters and symbols.

It is very seldom that we have everyone there at once – generally 6 – 12 turn up. Some can only manage every second week, some frequently fall foul of that dreaded scourge of retired members (holidays) and others pop along when they feel like it. All are welcome when it suits with no pressure on attendance. The only real rule is to enjoy it. The members are friendly, sociable, helpful but also, very quickly, as skills develop, they become determined to win.
