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 Tom,
I'm out in West Hollywood for the next few weeks while my brother goes through cancer treatments, and I'm looking to find a group nearby that won't mind if I drop in and play with them. Back home in York, PA, we meet at the Temple on Friday mornings to play and at Starbucks on Wednesdays and Sundays. They are open to anyone who wants to come and play. I don't know of you have something around here that is similar.
If you have any leads for me, I'd appreciate it. I've been out here for several weeks already, and I really miss the game!!!!
Thanks for your help,
Dale Reden

I know it seems early, but some people like to plan ahead. A cabin can be reserved for $100 fully refundable deposit if done by Feb 28, next week.
Thank you.

Hi, Diane Susan! Welcome to my website. I have a bulletin board where people post announcements that they are seeking other players. I call it the Find Players Bulletin Board. Your request has been posted there, so maybe someone will see your request and contact you. And you should search/scan through the board to find other players in your area. The Find Players board is at http://www.sloperama.com/majexchange/findplayer.htm. Wait for the page to load completely, then scroll down to see your post. And read "HOW TO USE THIS BULLETIN BOARD" atop the Find Players board. The board is organized with the most recent posts at the top, and oldest posts at the bottom. Good luck!
May the players be with you.
