Wow – such quick responses to the latest call-out for help…you are the BEST!
Here are a few of the replies:
In response to Do you have an orphanage, and do you sell individual tiles? Thanks, Erica:
First comes a response from Cat Hartman: My orphanage consists primarily of: Bone and Bamboo, Chinese Bakelite, French Ivory, Bone and Ebony, Met Games and Rottgames Catalin tiles. Let me vouch for Cat – she has an amazing knowledge of everything Mah Jongg and probably would be able to be successful in whatever you are looking to match. She can be contacted at email@example.com.

Shirley at firstname.lastname@example.org wrote: I do have a nice orphanage of tiles, mainly Bakelite and Catalin ,a few Chinese Bakelite and just a very small number of bone and bamboo. I usually buy when I see bits at reasonable cost.
Next, in response to wife8 who is looking for players in the Dix Hills, Deer Park, or Commack areas to play on Mondays, a response came in from Onebamtwocrak@gmail.com who said: To wife8 who was looking for players on Monday, while it doesn’t solve Mondays we have an open house for mah jongg players every Thursday from 1-4 at temple Beth -El of bellmore $3 donation and we serve refreshments. Come alone or with a game. Would love to see you.
Don’t forget – we still want to help out May who is looking for a game at Crossroads La Jolla and also from the very thoughtful Cindy D who is trying to find a game in the Mandeville area for her dear friend’s mother-in-law.
Lastly, I received a message from Clive G who wrote: I picked up your address on the web. I have been looking for a Mah Jongg score calculator – either something on the lines of the old Chad Valley cardboard calculator, or a stand-alone electronic device. Any ideas? An old Chad Valley calculator – any condition – would do. I haven’t seen any of these on eBay lately but if any of you have one for sale, let me know and I will pass your contact information on to Clive.
