Popular instructor and longtime Darien resident Donna Holt is at the Darien Community Association (DCA) to teach two different classes to learn and play Mah Jongg based on your ability.
Summer Boot Camp in July: Beginners – Learn to Play Mah Jongg in Four Days!

From Monday through Thursday morning, you will learn the basics of understanding the tiles and the Mah Jongg card, and how to select and strengthen a winning hand. Rules and strategies of play as well as game etiquette will be covered.

Summer Boot Camp in July: Guided Play – Mah Jongg till You Drop!
For newer players (who have completed a beginner class), playing Mah Jongg four days in a row will cement the rules and strategies you’ve learned, and pull the whole game together for you. For regular players, what could be more fun than a heavy dose of Mah Jongg to see you through the summer when everyone is away?
Keep your mind and your Mah Jongg game fresh with four consecutive days of guided play.
This class offers lots of playing time, with instructor Donna Holt on hand to help with all aspects of the game, from building your confidence when passing, to guiding the group through any rules or etiquette questions that arise.
Come meet others mad for Mah Jongg, and improve your game with a seasoned teacher in an encouraging atmosphere.
