Mah Jongg & More!

Introduction to Mah Jongg

Originating in China, Mah Jongg is an exciting and engaging game using tiles to form hands, much like rummy. You will learn to play the American version using the National Mah Jongg League rules and card. Neilia Makadok, an experienced educator, will explain the basics in simple terms and guide you as you play. A minimum of six players is required with a maximum of eight to ensure the best learning experience for all. Mah Jongg sets will be provided to use during the class, but feel free to bring your own.

Learn to Play Canasta

Canasta is one of the most widely played card games in the U.S. It can be played with two to four players, in partnerships or individually. Players form melds of seven cards of the same rank and aim to score points by creating specific combinations and completing objectives. It’s a fantastic game to play with friends!

Learn to Play Hand & Foot Canasta

Expand your Canasta know-how. Learn to play Hand and Foot Canasta—a variation of the classic Canasta card game. In this version, players work in partnerships, managing two sets of cards each – the "hand" and the "foot." The goal is to meld and lay down cards from both sets to score points, employing strategic gameplay and teamwork.
