Mah Jongg Mania

If Grandma-inspired fashion—like gigantic plastic-framed glasses, oversize sweaters and modest floral dresses—can make a comeback, why can’t your grandmother’s favorite game? During Mah Jongg Mania, the museum will screen two films that feature the game prominently: The Joy Luck Club and the documentary Mah Jongg: The Tiles That Bind. You can also learn how to play the game, which originated in China; four players compete at once using 152 tiles, each of which is emblazoned with one of four characters. Make your bubeleh proud by kicking your opponent’s tochis
