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 lists a LOT more teachers. You'll also find events and tournaments listed here on this bulletin board.

HOW TO USE THIS BULLETIN BOARD:

    FIRST, SEARCH THE PAGE FOR PLAYERS IN YOUR AREA:

      A lot of people have come here and posted announcements that they are looking for players. Scroll down below to see them. You can scroll through the entire list, looking to see if any are in your area. Or you could use modern technology to your advantage, utilizing the Find/Search function in your Browser to search by city or state. Be sure to check abbreviations too. You may need to wait a moment for the entire page to load before searching. After your search, if you don't find anyone, then open your email program and write your own announcement.

    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 (city and zip code) 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, without images. 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 me 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: The Maj Exchange cannot be responsible 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).

>Hello Mr. Sloper,

Do you have a reference for a tutor in the San Gabriel Valley that we might contact? We live in Hacienda Heights. My e-mail address in jdef426 at aol.com. Thank you - Jackie Brearley

Jackie,
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.

Looking to set up a So. Cal. mahjong group

>Subject: Southern California Mahjong Group
>Hi!
>My name is Weijie, and I've been looking to set up a Southern California Mahjong group (riichi, MCR, Hong Kong rules) and a friend of mine who's more into the Mahjong circles posted a link to your site that you posted back in 2009 here: http://sloperama.com/mahjongg/column430j.html
>I was wondering if there's any information regarding that Jansou, and whether or not you know of anyone who would be interested in joining this mahjong group? I've setup a Meetup on Meetup.com http://www.meetup.com/Southern-California-Riichi-MCR-Group/ here and I'm looking for more players and organization to get this on the road.
>Thanks in advance,
>~Weijie

Hi, Weijie,
I have not been to that jansou in years, and I don't know if it still operates. My friend Ricky Shiraishi moved to Japan, and I have not gone the extra mile to try to cultivate new contacts with the local jansous, if they still exist. The way I found them before was by looking in the テレフォンガイド (Terefon Gaido=Telephone Guide, which I picked up at the corner Mitsuwa) and looked in the yellow pages under "Mahjong." I tried that just now with the current テレフォンガイド and there was no Mahjong listing. If you want, you can try going to the old jansou locations and seeing for yourself if they're still there:

Tokyo Kaikan Nago-ya*
1648 G Carson St.
Torrance CA 90501

Ryozanpaku
1555 W Sepulveda Blvd. #P
Torrance Ca 90501

As for people who might be interested in joining your group, the best I can do is post this on my Find Players bulletin board (so I'm doing that, as well as answering your question about the jansou on my Q&A bulletin board). I would be interested, but my schedule is just crazy. I might check out your meetup (no guarantee I can ever join a game with my schedule).

May the tiles be with you.

Hi, Abby.
Do you mean the post on http://www.sloperama.com/majexchange/findplayer-archive1.htm from August 15, 2010? Took me a while to find it - and I didn't find any other posts mentioning Spring City anywhere on my site. There was an email address in that 2010 post. Did you try emailing it? I didn't see any mention of three players in that post.
