Mahjong Player's Companion

Welcome to the Seoul Club Mahjong Group.  We are a group that was formed about 10 years ago and has grown considerably due to our common interest…Mahjong!  The Mahjong group itself is made up of ladies (although we welcome men too) from over 10 different countries.

All players are welcome!  If you are new to the game or are a beginner, don’t worry, 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 does use “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 that 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 the Cheesman room.  Although we do not pay for the room we do contribute ₩10,000 per person at each session, this fee covers tea and coffee.  Twice a year we do try to organize a special event which we hope you can attend.

I organize the group on a week by week basis and usually send out an email every Wednesday to see who would like to play that week.  It is important to RSVP by Thursday noon, so I can confirm with the Seoul Club as to how many tables we will require.  

Mahjong is not the only reason we meet, just between you and me, 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 010-8804-4243 or email me at t.polglaze@gmail.com.

Cheers, 

Tania
