Tag Archives: Quints


Lisa is one of my star students – she is playing the game now like a true pro. And when the new 2016 card came out, she studied and analyzed it and her hard work paid off. Look at that smile on her face as she declares Mah Jongg with a quints hand of FFFF NNNNN 11111!IMG_0214

BTW, I have received emails from people looking for MJ games in Lower Westchester County, Martha’s Vineyard, and Omaha, Nebraska. If you know of any games in these locations, please let me know.


Our dear friend Shirley out east in Canada sent this photo – unfortunately, this was not Shirley’s hand but instead, was a Mah Jongg winning hand from one of her friends. My advice, tell this woman to play the lottery tonight – she clearly has lots and lots of luck!!!

Here’s another angle of the photo which might give you a better look at this lucky lady’s hand:

What hand do you think she was playing?
It could be from the Consecutive Run group: FF 1111 2222 DDDD using her Flowers, Dots, and Soaps.
Or from the 13579 group: FF 1111 9999 DDDD again using her Flowers, Dots, and Soaps.
She also could have done a grouping of Pungs instead of all Kongs and put together a hand from the 2015 section: FF 222 000 111 555 (and it’s a closed hand so worth a bit more) still using her Flowers, Dots, and Soaps.
With all those Jokers I would have gone to the Quints section of the card although I can understand why she wanted to use her Pair of Flowers, her Pair of Soaps, and her Pung of Dots; it makes perfect sense why she went in the direction she did, which was FF 1111 2222 DDDD
How many Jokers have you ever had in one hand? Tell us your stories!
