The Chinese Program in Asian Studies organized an interesting Mahjong night on October 8th.
Mahjong is a traditional Chinese tile-matching game played by four people. It can be traced back to 3000 years ago. At the beginning, only the kings and noble people could play this game, but very soon it was widely played by many Chinese people.
Today, Mahjong is still very popular in China. Chinese people view playing Mahjong as a social game where you can hang out with friends, and at the same time beat them in the game by making “perfect hands” to win.
