My graduated American mah jongg learning system helps people who want to make new friends or strengthen existing friendships to gather into groups of four or eight by learning how to play a wonderful Chinese tile-matching game called American mah jongg instead of going it alone and missing out on great comradery.

May the jokers be with you!



American Mahjong is as old as the 1860's in China and then was expanded to Asia and then Europe in the 1900's.


Joseph Babcock brought Mahjong to the US around 1923, then Americanized it and in 1937 the National Mah Jongg League centralized the rules.


A great on-line American Mahjong game can be found at mahjong timedotcom. Beginners can start in the "school" and then graduate to competitive games. Think of a creative handle before you sign-up. Play against Zazzles if you want me as an opponent :).
