Mah Jongg is not just a game. It has become a part of my life that allows me to entertain my Mah Jongg-playing friends, cook great meals to serve to them and test my mental skills during our game play (which, hopefully, is often).
Stacey Rea has come out with a 2017 Second Edition of her fun and very helpful American Mah Jongg Flipbook Reference Guide. For those of you who can’t seem to find a Mah Jongg teacher in your area, or just need some brushing up on how to play, this flipbook will be all you need.
They are calling it YOGA JONGG and our good friend Leah Feigenbaum of MahJongg Mentor is all part of it! If you are looking for a Zen experience combined with the excitement of our beloved game of Mah Jongg all the while cruising the high seas in the utmost comfort, this is the cruise for you!

That Lynn Chorn from www.wherethewindsblow.com is one fabulous lady. And, in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, she carries this terrific Breast Cancer Awareness Mah Jongg Set.
I own this set and I can promise you that it is special and something that I treasure. It is a great gift for any and everyone, especially those whose lives – or the lives of loved ones – have been touched by breast cancer.
Check out these wonderful “Find the Cure” Jokers that match the pink glitter tiles of the set:
And look at everything that comes with this set, including the great pair of dice and pink racks with pushers attached!BTW, the set also comes with ten regular pink glitter Jokers, just in case you want to use the “Find the Cure” pink ribbon tiles for something else.
And now Lynn is selling these special dice alone for only $5. What a great gift this is for anyone who has been touched by this disease (and we all know at least one person, don’t we?)
Her most recent newsletter listed many of the rules for both types of games. I think these are important to know, especially for social games where we do not have a ruling director as we do in tournaments.
I agree with all of these rules. And, as a courtesy to your friends, please pay attention to #5 – there is no reason to wear perfume/cologne to your MJ game…please be aware of your friends’ sensitivities!
I spoke with Lynn at Where the Winds Blow yesterday and was left speechless when I heard that she lost her entire home during the hurricane. But, to my amazement, Lynn was upbeat and optimistic. She said the good news is that the store was untouched by Harvey and she had just received a huge shipment of new Mah Jongg items for her inventory.
Lynn is an amazing woman – I hope you always will support her for anything you might need Mah Jongg-related and especially right now while she and her family work on building a new place to live. BTW, when I told her that I was going to do a blog on this, she said, “I don’t want anyone to see me as a victim.” As always, Lynn was positive and thankful that nothing happened to the store. She really is wonderful and I consider her to be a very dear friend.
Here is the message she has sent out to the Mah Jongg community:
