Marbella Mahjong

Hi and welcome to the Marbella Mahjong Club!

The Club is for people who want to learn and play together. Mahjong is an exciting and addictive game, but also stimulating. We welcome everybody, men and women; beginners and experts.

Chinese Mahjong (think “Joy Luck Club”) is a game, deeply ingrained in Asian culture, played by both men and women at all social gatherings. In fact, many scholars of Chinese history claim that Mahjong was actually created by Confucius in 500 B.C.

Mahjong is a unique turn-based game involving strategy and calculation, and a certain degree of chance but we insist on Mahjong being a challenging game of skill, not a game of luck!

The game is played by drawing and matching tiles in combinations that grant you the most points, and you must be as aware of your opponents’ (hidden) hands as your own.

In spite of being of Eastern origin, Mahjong is a game that translates into all languages. If a mental challenge is what you want, mahjong is definitely the game, for it was often called the "game of a hundred intelligences" simply because it required much concentration.

Are you a fan of bridge, gin, whisk and other card games? Then Mahjong is your game! Play for yourself! No partners to glare at you for wrong bidding or play!

We welcome everybody, men and women; beginners and experts.

We aim to meet every Friday. Visit us at or email for more information.

Mahjong in Nerja
by: Jane Marsh

Hello I’m going to be renting an apartment in Nerja for a few months and wondered if there are any Mahjong players there or people who would be interested to learn (I can teach the American mahjong game and could have a go at teaching the International game which is a variation of Chinese mahjong (I think)

My email is if anyone would like to get in touch !

Thank you

Looking for Mah Jong players on the Costa del Sol
by: John


My name is John Laslo. I play a style of Mah Jong which is a combination Chinese/Japanese/Hawaiian
Version. There is no card required. I have played on cruises with many others who use similar rules.
If anyone is interested in getting a group together, I would consider organizing it with help of others.

I will be back in Fuengirola on 18 August for 4 months so maybe we could work together and form a loosely, organized game for people who want to play whenever they are here… all levels.

My phone is +34 656 84 73 54. Please contact me if you are interested. Leave a message if I am not able to answer. Or email me at

Let’s do this and have fun!!
