My mother loved playing Mah Jongg. She played in two groups, once a week in an afternoon group and once a week in a nightly group. I'd help her set up when she hosted the nightly group and she taught me how to play. We'd play a round before her friends arrived. None of my friends played, not that I know of, so my interest in the game waned. But I still love seeing the tiles and hearing the sound of them clicking together. They're ivory -- I had my own wood set -- so that's a no-no now.
