Majiang Mania

Over the holiday break, all of our grandparents stayed at our house. During this time, Julie and I had the chance to introduce some more Chinese culture into our grandparents' systems. We took the time to teach them how to play Majiang, basically a Chinese version of cards using tiles.

We started by teaching our grandfathers the rules, instructions, and what each tile means. Afterwards, Julie and I played several games, helping them until they got the hang of it. Soon they were able to play without any help or advice from the two of us.

Several days later, we taught our grandmother how to play. After playing many games with her and our grandfathers, she got the hang of it. One night, Julie, Mom, Grandma, Grandpa, and I played a marathon of Majiang. With snacks and drinks near by, we played for several hours. At around midnight, we decided to hit the sack, as we all felt tired. We wanted to be rested for another day of Majiang!

Best game ever! My brother and I have the best time playing with my grandmother. We finally got our cousins into it too. After we get tired of playing by the real rules, we make up silly ones.
