I have always been a spectator during mahjong games.
Mahjong is a game that originated in China, commonly played by four players (with some three-player variations found in Korea and Japan). Mahjong is a game of skill, strategy and calculation and involves a certain degree of chance. In Asia, mahjong is also popularly played as a gambling game (though it may just as easily be played recreationally). Source: Wikipedia
But during this last vacation, I was "forced" to play coz if not there would be no game for the rest being one player short.
Two of the players were professionals as they confessed to having played in the "pro league". The third was my husband who enjoys the game but has not played for more than 10 years, and he only plays in "friendly" games.
We played for two evenings after dinner last week.
And the big winner was the rookie, me!!! Yippee!
