I want to come, but don’t know if I’m ready for a tournament. Can I still play?
Of course! If you don’t think you will be able to keep up with the pace of tournament play, we offer the option of “Social Play.” You will be assigned to a table and play three rounds of Mah Jongg during the day, but you don’t have to worry about getting through four games in every hour. You and your tablemates will go at your own pace and play as many games in an hour as you can.
New this year: A Teaching Room
