On the 12th March, we are hosting a Mah Jong Day School at the Federation Office. This is a chance to learn the traditional past time, which is similar to playing rummy with dominoes. This game originated in China and is usual played by four people, which is the same for this course. However it is played differently in other countries such as Korea, Japan and Asia. There are 136 tiles with Chinese symbols on and each player receives 13 tiles to play with. Each player draws a tile and discards it depending on whether it is suitable for them or not.

There are 14 places left! If you are interested in attending please contact the Federation Office on 0113 2550810 or email on westyorksfed@gmail.com
