Play Mahjong at our live meetups!

We host free and open Riichi Mahjong meetups in person every week, and sometimes more! Every Sunday, you can join our meetup in midtown Manhattan, where you can get to know other players and compete for a spot in the monthly rankings. Our meetups are convenient to most subway lines, making it easy for players from Queens to New Jersey to reach us for games. See our schedule on the home page or in our discord, we hope to see you there!

We also host meetups monthly in Long Island for our players farther afield, and occasionally play is hosted in Brooklyn at the Club President's apartment featuring four automatic mahjong tables!

Our friendly club officers are more than happy to walk you through any rules or start a teaching table for you until you're ready to hop into our ranked games. We welcome everyone, and have brought many players from "Hey, what game is this you're playing here?" to "Ron, 12,000 points!" through our teaching tables!
