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).
MAH JONGG CAN MAKE YOU RICH…AND NOT JUST IN MONEY!
I received an email today from my dear friend J. With the email came the photo below and an explanation. J has been playing Mah Jongg for the past few months with a very experienced and fun group of women who have a $30 pie and with the values on the card doubled up to the nearest quarter. While cleaning out her closet, and the purses inside, she came across her most recent winnings. WOW!!! Check out all of her winning coins and bills!And who says that Mah Jongg is a waste of time?!!!
But there is more to this story…just to show you that J is into the game not for the money (even though that is always an additional benefit) but for the friendship that we all enjoy when we play. She is now also in a group with a $4.00 pie. This week she won $2.00 and is as proud of those winnings as she is with all of the money in the photo because the people in this group are so special. Let me say it again…Mah Jongg people are the best!
Just remember…And the most important thing to remember:
Depending on the expertise of the players, and the ability to play at least 4 to 5 games an hour (no doubling or tripling) ….the points on this card require at least an $8.00 pie. I personally don’t believe anyone should “go pie” (deplete their purse) in a game. The game changes for the player who doesn’t have any money left in their purse; and they may play a more aggressive game – sometimes throwing all caution to the winds. With an empty purse, you aren’t going to be out of any more money; but your opponents will have to pay for your rashness.
I am new at MahJongg (7 months) and still have much to learn.I Iove it. I lead a very busy life and this game has helped me to be with my friends on a regular basis and enjoy the afternoons.
