Virginia Chan, founder of Humid with a Chance of Fishballs, will lead you through via Zoom an Introduction to Mahjong workshop, from the history to simple gameplay.
During the workshop, Virginia will briefly give an overview of the 144 tiles of Mahjong, how to build sets and will teach students how to build a winning hand. At the end of the session, students should be able to play independently on their own on a Mahjong app*.
Founded in late 2016, Humid with a Chance of Fishballs Tours, as recently seen in Netflix Restaurants on the Edge series, is a small grassroots company that strives to offer authentic and off-the-beaten path local experiences so you can get a taste and glimpse of true local life, culture and traditions in Hong Kong.
*Please note that we will be using a Mahjong game app to enable all the students in the class to be able to play against one another. This game download is optional but the game will be used during the workshop. The Mahjong app will ask you to sign in using either your Google, Facebook or Twitter account. Virginia is not affiliated with the app and anything you do from this 3rd Party App will be at your own risk. Any use of the 3rd Party App will be subject to and any information you provide will be governed by the terms of the 3rd Party app, including those relating to confidentiality, data privacy and security.
