The Bryan Main Library Adult Dept. will be holding Mahjong Club, each Friday at 10:00 am. Adults, age 18 and older, are invited to gather, play, or learn how to play Mahjong.
Mahjong is a card game that originated in China. Four players play the game using numbered tiles or cards. In all, there are 144 tiles, of which 36 tiles are in the Bamboo suit, 36 in the Circle suit, 36 in the Character suit, 16 Wind tiles, 12 Dragon tiles, and 8 bonus tiles (4 Flowers and 4 Seasons). Depending upon the game, the number of tiles may vary. Four players collect tiles with similar pictures and numbers. At the end of the game, the player who has collected the maximum number of sets is the winner.
Mahjong Club is open to all skill levels. Whether you are a Mahjong expert, or are playing the game for the first time, you are welcome to attend! All supplies will be provided by the Bryan Main Library, which is located at 107 E. High Street. For more information, please call 419-636-6734 ext. 221.
