Yesterday was Mah Jongg Wednesday with the OMs and S1 hosted. Look at the beautiful table with a spectacular fall centerpiece that was waiting for us:
Lunch was so delicious – spicy chili, three different and wonderful kinds of cheese, cole slaw, and – YUM! – corn bread!
Read on to see the very special gift I received…
And then we started to play – and look at this spectacular enrobed set…if you read this blog then you probably know that I have frequently written about how I yearn for an enrobed Mah Jongg set. G.F., a reader of the blog, very generously, thoughtfully, wonderfully, amazingly sent me a gift of this fabulous enrobed set. I still can’t get over this incredible gift! I just love it! G told me that she bought it for me at Where the Winds Blow and so this is a doubly wonderful gift since I love everything and everyone (especially the owner, Lynn) at this fabulous Mah Jongg site.
So fabulous! Hurrah!!! I own an enrobed set!!!! Thank you G.F. – I am so happy with this gorgeous set – and it is so easy to read on top of being beautiful.
We played many hands today – here are some of them:
S2 won with this Atomic hand although we suffered through two wall games at first.
X won the next few games with the following hands: Another Atomic hand
A Consecutive Run hand of 111 2222 333 4444
And another Consecutive Run of 11 22 333 444 5555
I finally was able to declare Mah Jongg with a CONSECUTIVE RUN hand of 11 22 111 222 3333 – I loved playing this hand and found it to be challenging.
S1 came roaring back with this ADDITION HANDS of FFFF 6666 + 7777 = 13 – another very challenging hand.
S2 declared Mah Jongg with a LIKE NUMBERS hand of FFFF 1111 11 1111
I won another hand with this 2468 hand of 22 44 444 666 8888
J joined us late in the day – hurrah – she’s back! – but just in time for her to win with this 2468 hand of 22 44 666 888 DDDD
I noticed that there were many Atomic hands played today and I am working on getting the OMs to cut down on these hands that so dramatically change the dynamics of the game. I am lobbying for Atomic hands NOT to include Jokers OR Flowers. So far I haven’t been successful. Do any of you play Atomic? If so, do you allow Flowers?
