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. (It's a box with up arrow on top, this will open 2 rows of possibilities, scroll over to “Find on page” which opens up a search bar at bottom of page, type in item looking for, and it tells how many matches and highlights them. - Thanks to Susan S for this detail!) 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 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, please include the year in which the event is to occur.

    Click to submit your own announcement,
    or just email webmaster at sloperama dot com.

    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 webmonster.

    Legal Notice: owner 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.

Looking for instructor of classic Chinese play

>From: Leilani Cronin <leilanicroningmail.com>
>Sent: Monday, July 30, 2018 9:50 AM
>Subject: Austin, TX Classic Chinese Mahjongg Instructor Needed
>I am looking for an instructor in the classic or traditional Chinese Mahjongg. I learned many years ago from my grandmother, and I have started a 14-person group but play a modified version and scoring version. I would like to learn the true game complete with scoring.
>Leilani Lum Cronin,

Hi, Leilani!
Pardon me for interjecting myself into your Find Teachers post. I just think you need to know what I have to say about your search.
Your first problem is that the "classic" Chinese rules are not widely played anymore. That game is scored in a way that caused a lot of upheaval in the 1920s when the game first made its way to America. In China, nobody plays that way anymore. So it's unlikely you'll find a teacher experienced in teaching the classic system in your local area.
Second, precious few mah-jongg teachers even know genuine "classic" rules. And when you find a teacher who teaches Chinese mah-jongg, she'll only be able to teach you a different "modified version and scoring" than what you already play - or maybe it's not that far off from what you play (but it certainly won't be "classic").

I don't know why you want the classic rules, but if you really want the classic rules, your best bet is to learn it from a book or website. Since you already play, you aren't likely to get confused by the slight differences you may find. I list books in FAQ 3 (but I can tell you now that the best book on classic rules is Millington), and websites in FAQ 4B. You can link to the FAQs above left.

But to get back to your reason for wanting different rules. Why don't you tell me what it is you want to accomplish? If you just want "genuine," be prepared for disappointment (your skilled players and your unskilled players are going to grow to hate one another). If you want "better than what we play now," then you'll have to tell me what's wrong with the system you use now - what does "better" look like? I wrote FAQ 2A to help people choose the best variant, depending on what one wants from a rule set. If you want simple scoring, go Hong Kong style. If you want more tiles and simpler gameplay, go Taiwanese style. I really don't recommend Classical scoring.

May the tiles be with you.

I wish Zoe would have told you about my Find Players Bulletin Board. I posted your email there so you can either (a) be contacted by players near you, or (b) find players who've posted their availability.
I don't keep a database of players, and I don't try to play matchmaker. Everything I have is on the BB.
Next time you see Zoe, please tell her about the BB. Hope you find a game!
Oh - if you don't want your contact info on the web, I can delete the post on the BB, and I can sanitize the one on the Mah-Jongg Q&A Bulletin Board.

Hi my name is Alexis. I’m located in the Homer Glen-Lockport area and would like to join a Mahjongg group that plays regularly. I’ve been playing for about 15 yrs, have played in tournaments and enjoy playing for money. I play quite often at temple Beth Shalom in Florida and friends homes.
I’d like to find a friendly group to enjoy the game with. ??
Thank you, Alexis

"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative, there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and endless plans: That the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves, too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it! Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. "~ William Hutchinson Murray
"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares drop off like autumn leaves." John Muir, Our National Parks, 1901
To laugh often and love much, to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affections of children; to earn the approbation of honest critics; to find the best in others; to give of one’s self, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exaltation; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived…this is to succeed. Ralph Waldo Emerson(1803-1882)
"This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness." The Dalai Lama

I would like to recommend you two upcoming MCR Mah Jong tournaments: Both are part of the traditional Austrian – Italian Gourmet Cup which takes place this year for the eighth time.

Both tournaments are MERS1, 7 rounds 120 minutes each.
We’ll play in very nice locations with delicious food and drinks – of course it’s a “GOURMET CUP”.
We are looking forward to your participation.
Have a nice time and best regards

Seeking mah jongg players in SE Wisconsin. I'm just north of Milwaukee and willing to travel to the Wisconsin southern border, Madison, Manitowoc. Weekends only, day or evening. I play American NMJL, but would enjoy learning traditional Chinese style as well. I'm a good player, and I don't care what level you are.
