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). 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 and Tom. 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. 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. It's a good idea to read FAQ 2 before contacting me, so you know which kind of mah-jongg you want to learn. Private lessons available; cost varies depending on class size. You can email me at . And more teachers are listed in FAQ 4a as well as below (search this page for your area).

[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.

Hi -
I am the organizer of the Peabody Mah Jongg meetup ...
The tournament is on Saturday, July 23rd, starting at 10AM. Anyone interested in participating should visit this URL in their web browser — http://files.meetup.com/11575862/PeabodyMahJonggTournament2016.pdf — for details, a registration form, and a listing of the tournament rules.

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.

Stacey, please check FAQ 4a (list of teachers by state) and the Find Players/Teachers Bulletin Board, including archived boards. I do not possess any contacts beyond those listed on the FAQ and the boards. Also see FAQ 15. There are links to the FAQs above left, and THIS (where you're reading this) is the Find Players board (and you can link to archived boards at the bottom). Here on this board, search for your zip code and search for Alexandria and Washington and nearby towns.
If you're on a Windows PC, best way to search is with Control-F. If you're on a Mac, use Command-F. If you're on an iPad and don't know how to search a text string on a web page, see http://www.imore.com/how-search-text-web-page-safari-iphone-and-ipad
Good luck! - Tom

The Fourth World Mahjong Championship will be at Jeju Island, South Korea, from Nov.11th to 15th, 2015.
This is first time that South Korea organizer organize such large tournament. It is obvious the lack of experience and bad communication had caused a lot of problems recently.

There are a lot of hotels in its vicinity, price range form low to high.

Hi Jeff,
I know that there are gay players in L.A., because I have taught some gay men how to play. I cannot give you any contact information (it would be prohibitively time-consuming to dig through my records, and that might not even turn up the information - and my policy is that I don't give out personal information anyway), but I can (and will) post this on the Find Players board as well as the Q&A board. You can look through the Find Players board to see if you can find male names in the L.A. area. If you want to take one of my classes, I will be running a class in October at American Jewish University: see http://wcce.aju.edu/
May the tiles be with you.

Moving your listing up to the top will not increase the likelihood of your finding players. You seem to think that the way people use the board is:

    1. Visitor comes to Find Players bulletin board.
    2. Visitor scrolls down looking for players in her local area
    3. Visitor doesn't find anything after scrolling through just a few entries (before ever getting as far down as June 7 - only a month and a half ago!), gives up and goes away.

But that's a terrible way to use the board! A much better way is:

    1. Visitor comes to Find Players bulletin board.
    2. Visitor reads instructions atop the board.
    3. Visitor uses the browser's search utility to find instances of "Lindenhurst" or "Nassau" or "Suffolk"
    4. Oh! The humanity is found!
    5. Visitor contacts you because she found you, by using a smart search method.

Because method #2 will work and get people to contact you, and method #1 won't work for impatient visitors, I see no need to "update" your post (i.e. move your month-old post to the top).
May the tiles players be with you.

Mah-jongg in Los Angeles question, part 2

>Hi Tom,

Hi, Melissa. I totally understand and I'm sorry. Normally, I never show a correspondent's last name. But there are exceptions to that rule -- when someone sends me a Find Players post is one of those exceptions (since those correspondents are specifically trying to be contacted). I'm editing your post.
To get back to your first email: there are a lot of questions you might ask, based on your self-intro, and I could not be sure which one(s) you wanted answered. If you were looking for players or teachers, the Find Players board is where you can find them. I can teach you Chinese Classical, but I need a minimum of 4 students, and I don't maintain running lists of students. If that's what you were going to ask. And I don't know of any other teachers in the L.A. area who teach Chinese Classical. (If that's what you were going to ask.) You might want to read FAQ 15. And, of course, scour the Find Players/Teachers board, and read FAQ 4a.
May the tiles be with you.

Subject: Mah-jongg in Los Angeles question
Dear Tom Sloper,
I am in Los Angeles, westside, for a month for work, and I am interested in learning and playing Mah-jongg. I have wanted to learn Mah-jongg for some time, and I spent this past June at an artist residency with an experienced player. We played Classical Chinese several evenings, so I am very much a beginner.
Thank you,
Melissa H

Hi, Melissa.
I didn't see a question, so I posted this on the Find Players bulletin board. If you have a question for me, fire away!

Hi, Linda.
I think you'll have better luck finding someone to teach you if you complete the "Which Rules Should I Learn" FAQ, "Frequently Asked Question" 2-A. You can link to the FAQs above left. While you're at it, I recommend you also read FAQ 15.
May the tiles be with you.

Here's how my website works: all the information I have that people might want is right here, available for you to find (I do not have, for example, any lists of tutors or players that are not listed here on this site).
I have three ways for you to find a teacher here on my site:
FAQ 4A has a list of teachers right at the top.
FAQ 15 offers ideas for other ways to find one.
You can also search through the posts on the Find Players/Teachers bulletin board (search for zip code or city name, and you can also click back and see even older listings).
(I apparently lied when I said there were 3 ways) You can also post an announcement on the Find Players/Teachers board - but you don't need to, because I'm posting your question and my answer there, as well as on the Q&A board. Maybe someone in your area will see your post and contact you.
You can link to FAQ 4A, FAQ 15, and the Find Players/Teachers board in the "site links" list above left.
Good luck! May the tiles be with you.
