Mahjong is kind of complicated. If you’re still baffled despite your friends trying their darn best to teach you, why not sign up for a two-hour mahjong sesh where you’ll be taught the basics by a long-time player? No time will be wasted on shuffling and arranging the tiles either - an automatic mahjong table will do everything so you can start the next round asap.
From $55 per person. Book here.
