Learn the wonderful game of Mah Jong. Renowned Mah Jong teacher (and Village Member) Bob Hoffman has agreed to provide free lessons for all Washington DC Village members. Beginners (and other levels) will learn to play this ancient game, invented in China and brought to America in the mid 20th century. The game is similar in some aspects to the card game Bridge and uses beautiful tiles that need to be arranged in certain patterns. It is easy to learn and offers lots of fun. Typically a game involves players per table. Please contact: Bob Hoffman, hoffharmonica@gmail.com , 202-320-6252
