Find Mah-Jongg Players, Teachers, & Tournaments HERE

Want to find players (or mah-jongg teachers) in your area? This bulletin board is one tool you can use; FAQ 15 describes more ways to find players, and FAQ 4A contains a dedicated list of teachers. In addition to players and teachers, you'll also find events and tournaments listed here on this bulletin board. Please do not ask me if I have any names of players or teachers that I am secretly withholding from this board and from FAQ 4A - why would I do that?? I post all players and teachers who contact me, and I am not withholding any names. So, please, don't ask!!

HOW TO USE THIS BULLETIN BOARD:

    FIRST, SEARCH THE PAGE FOR PLAYERS IN YOUR AREA:

      A lot of people have posted announcements that they are looking for players like you! You could scroll through the entire list, but a better way to find people in your area is to use the Find/Search function in your Browser to search by city or state. If you're on a Windows computer, press Control-F (Command-F if you're on a Mac). If you use an iPad, tap the Search box in the upper right corner of your Safari screen. You may need to try different key words for your search. After your search, if you don't find anyone, I'm sorry, but this is all the names that I have. I swear that I am not withholding additional names, so please don't ask me if I have more names in your area, because I do not. If you don't find anyone on this list or in FAQ 4A (teachers) or FAQ 15 (players or teachers), write your own announcement and email it to me and I'll post your announcement below. That's the best I am able to do.

    SECOND, POST YOUR OWN ANNOUNCEMENT:

      EMAIL YOUR ANNOUNCEMENT to Webmaster@Sloperama.com or click the picture below to submit your Find Players/Teachers post. In your email, you must specify your location (just city, state, and maybe zip code; do not state your street address) and what kind of mah jongg you play (most American female players play "American/NMJL" mah jongg - if you do not know which variant you play, read FAQ 2b). Due to the actions of spammers, all users' posts go through me; I post them manually. That means you cannot expect your announcement to appear within a few minutes of your sending it to me; allow several hours at minimum. Entries that do not provide sufficient information will not be posted. No information you provide through this website shall be deemed confidential.

      Don't ask questions here. If you have a question to ask, use the Q&A Bulletin Board. This board is for announcements only.

      NO SHOUTING. Nobody is allowed to shout on this site except the webmaster. Typing in all capital letters is regarded as "shouting" on the internet. If you use all capitals in your post, it will be converted to lower case before being posted. Non-mah-jongg advertising may be blacked out or deleted.

      EVENT ORGANIZERS: Please send your announcement in text-only form for easy posting. No PDFs. We can post an image here (just one image per announcement), but the image must not exceed 400 pixels in the largest dimension. Images must be JPG or GIF or PNG attachments in an email (not a link, and not pasted into the email; no DOC files, no PDFs). Links must show complete URL in the link title (not like this, but rather like this: http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/struct/links.html#h-12.1.4). When announcing an event, you must include the year in which the event is to occur, so that you don't get bugged by inquiries a year later and then come back to me and ask me to do more work for you and delete your old announcement. That can make the webmaster grumpy.


    Click this picture, or email the address above, to submit your own announcement. Depending on what email program you use, clicking the picture might not work for you.

    If you have already posted on this board within the past year, and if your post is still visible below, PLEASE DO NOT ASK US TO PLACE A NEWER ANNOUNCEMENT unless you have moved to a different city, or your game has changed to a different day of the week, or some other substantial change has occurred in regards to your posted information. It annoys the webmaster and he responds gruffly to frivolous repost requests. [Please read the preceding announcement. Thank you - Webmaster]

    Legal Notice: Sloperama.com accepts no responsibility for verifying the accuracy of any of these listings--please use your discretion in contacting fellow potential players. "When you email me, I own it." The price of the information I give is that it is given only in this public forum. Emailing me with a question or comment on the topics covered here constitutes permission for your email to be made public. (Business inquiries and scholar/journalist queries are of course treated with all due confidentiality.) Thank you.



Live in Los Angeles and want to learn? My name is Tom Sloper, and this is my website. They call me "Mr. Mah-Jongg." I wrote the definitive book on mah-jongg East & West, "The Red Dragon & The West Wind." I will teach you ANY kind of mah-jongg (American, Chinese Classical, Chinese Official, Japanese, Hong Kong, Taiwanese...!). Classes at your home or at a neutral location. Private lesson cost varies depending on class size; you need to have a minimum group size of four students. You can email me at . I also teach classes at AJU's Whizin Center (wcce.aju.edu/) two or three times a year; contact AJU through their website. And more teachers are listed in FAQ 4a as well as below (search this page for your area). Before contacting me or another teacher, it's a good idea to read FAQ 2, so you know which kind of mah-jongg you want to learn.

Hi, Alan. I'm posting your request on the Find Players bulletin board. Interested people might send you an email to learn more about your friend - but it would probably be best for you to be pro-active rather than wait for emails. Look for the search term "Brooklyn" (or your friend's zip code) on the Find Players bulletin board, then email those from Brooklyn who are looking for players to join them. Good luck!
May the tiles be with you.

[Anne, this board's image size limit is 400 pixels (as it says in the instructions for event organizers above). Your image was incredibly huge, and two programs were unable to even open it. Photoshop was able to open it and shrink it to 400 pixels high, but the resizing has rendered parts of it unreadable. It is easier to simply send the information in text format. Good luck with your tournament! - Webmaster]

SCAM ALERT

Someone using the name "James Graham" and using the email address james.graham115@outlook.com has emailed mah-jongg instructors listed on this site, attempting to perpetrate a scam. All readers are advised to delete emails from this scammer, and from anyone offering a transaction involving funds which are doomed to be "confiscated" unless a partnership is formed. It's hogwash, and he's trying to get money from you.
Good luck! May the tiles be with you.

I have been playing Mah Jong for about 3 or 4 years and really enjoy the game. Unfortunately, my regular group broke up and l have just been filling in with other groups. I would love to play with a group on a regular basis. I live in the North Shore area of Chicago. If anyone is interested my email is twalnercomcast.net. My name is Terri Walner and my home phone is 847-432-1372. Hope someone needs a player.

Hi, Andrew. You wrote:

No. I'm sorry, but I don't have any leads on anything or anybody, anywhere, other than what's in the Find Players bulletin board and FAQ 4A. You can link to the boards and FAQs above left. I did teach a group in Coachella Valley seven years ago (http://www.sloperama.com/mahjongg/column403a.htm), but I don't have the time or energy or desire to try to dig up old contact information. I recommend you try the Find Players board and FAQ 15. Maybe try inquiring at senior centers, country clubs, etc. Good luck.
May the tiles be with you.
