Welcome to the Seoul Club Mahjong Group!  We are a group that was formed in the early 2000s and has grown considerably due to our common interest…Mahjong!  The Mahjong group itself is made up of ladies (although men are welcome, too) from many different countries.

 

All players are welcome!  If you are new to the game or are a beginner, we have plenty of ol’ hands who are only too happy to teach and guide new members.   On the other hand, if you have played for years and are experienced, I can guarantee some hefty competition. We pride ourselves on being an open and diverse group, no inhibitions!

 

Our group uses “The Mah Jong Player’s Companion” by Patricia A. Thompson and Betty Maloney as our resource.  If you do not have a copy, I have extras you can use until you obtain your own. The book is available through many websites such as Amazon, Book Depository and Ebay.  

 

We meet on Fridays at 10:00am at the Seoul Club* in one of their meeting rooms.  Although we do not pay for the room, we do contribute 10,000 per person at each session, as this fee covers tea and coffee.  Twice a year, in December and late May, we organize a special tournament with fun variations of the game, and hand out a prize to the winner of the preceding season, as well as the tournament winner.

 

I organize the group on a week by week basis.  We have a Facebook page where the weekly invitations can be found. Please ask to join the Seoul Club Mahjong Group on FB.  It is important to RSVP by Thursday noon, so I can confirm with the Seoul Club as to how many tables we will require and how many sets we will need to play.  

 

Mahjong is not the only reason we meet. It is a fun group with lots of laughs and good times.  It is also a great way to start your weekend!  If you would like to come along or just have a chat about it please don’t hesitate to contact me on 010-9578-7721 or email me at marieke_doherty@yahoo.com

 

Cheers,

Marieke
