Learn to Play Mag Jongg

The Engineer’s Club flourished in the current building starting in 1918 with ever increasing membership and activities during the decades that followed, but most especially during the 1920’s, 1930’s and 1940’s. As it just so happens, that is exactly the same time frame when the game of Mah Jongg was growing in popularity in this country. The evidence for this rapid growth was the opening of Mah Jongg parlors, restaurants, newspaper and magazine articles, songs, music, parties, shops etc., during this same time period. Surely the Wright Family and other prominent members of The Club knew about Mah Jongg (and maybe even played) because it was such a popular leisure activity during these decades, and even into the decades that followed. While these early Dayton Industrialists were constantly thinking, inventing, and doing, they must have had “some” leisure time” for rest, relaxation and companionship. Mah Jongg provides all that and more.

While the game died off quite a bit in popularity during the 1980’s and l990’s; it’s coming back these days with gusto! We have introduced the game of Mah Jongg into The Engineer’s Club on Wednesday’s starting at 11:00 and welcome ALL Club members to come learn this challenging game, enjoy the Club’s delicious lunch buffet service and to have fun. You are on your own for the lunch charge, and there is no charge for the Mah Jongg lessons. You will need to purchase an official National Mah Jongg League playing card that costs either $8 for a small card or $9 for a large version (easier to read text). These cards will be available for purchase. 

If you have any questions you are encouraged to call Gina Papa at 937-429-4380.
