Want to learn to play games of mahjong like a Crazy Rich Asian?
What is mahjong?
Mahjong is a game commonly played with four players and special tiles originating in China during the Qing dynasty. Now played all over the world and most widespread in Eastern and South Eastern Asia, this skillful game of strategy is sometimes compared to rummy, the Western card matching game.
Become an expert in reading minds and faces using more than 100 tiles based on Chinese characters and symbols. Draw or “rob” a piece from another player. Enjoy a Burmese meal, make new friends, or act quickly and buy out the whole table!
What to expect:
Join Toli Moli all Mondays in May for a special AAPI Heritage Month weekly game night. At each two-hour event, expect a full lesson and a supper social at the bodega.
