The new cards are here!
If you are not a Mah Jongg player you won't understand our excitement when "the new cards" come in....but this was the week when Debbie, (our 'master' player) brought back the 2009 cards from the States. To use an American term...It's a whole new ball game, Ladies! The tile patterns that we have memorized over the past year are no longer the same. Those of us who are addicted to the game gather on Fridays at the AWC, set up the tables and tiles, and get out our special Mah Jongg purses full of 20 pence coins. We barely win or lose enough for a Starbuck's Skinny Latte. In the official rule book it states that it is a game of skill, strategy, and calculation but to be honest there is a certain degree of luck involved....you've got to have a few jokers to win....just like LIFE!
