Learn American mahjong in Forest Hills
There are two opportunities to learn American mahjong, a variant of the Chinese game mahjong, in Forest Hills. The goal of the tile-based game is to be the first, by picking and discarding, to match one’s tiles to a specific hand from the annually distributed scorecard published by the National Mah Jongg League (NMJL) and American Mah-Jongg Association (AMJA). Scoring is done by matching the points assigned to each pre-determined hand on the annually distributed NMJL card & AMJA card.
