Until the COVID-19 pandemic closed the Centre, the CB55+ MahJong group was enjoying a very successful year, with as many as four or five tables of enthusiastic players enjoying the Friday afternoon sessions.
Almost from the beginning our group has played a modified version of Western MahJong. Because we enjoy the game in a social rather than competitive context, we have eliminated the building of walls and tallying of scores. This speeds things up considerably, enabling us to play three to five games in the time it would take to complete one game at the official level. And there are always people willing to play if someone wants to score or build walls.
We all look forward to resuming play once table games are again allowed at the Centre. We are always glad to welcome new players who are interested in learning to play the game. If enough people sign up, formal classes may be offered; otherwise members of the group are happy to mentor new members on a one-on-one basis.
