2nd World Mahjong Mind Games (Updated)
« on: May 28, 2018, 09:33:19 pm »
As a prelude to future Olympic events, the 2nd World Mahjong Mind Games (WMMG) is announced to take place in Taipei from the 17th to 25th of November, 2018.

The American Duplicate Mahjong Association (ADMA) is planning to have a demonstration event of American style mah-jongg during the WMMG, and all interested players are encouraged to participate, helping to showcase your American-style heritage in the home country of mahjong: China!

Interested players should contact millersintexas at gmail.com.

American players are also invited to compete in the many other events taking place during this prestigious WMMG, including the team event of MCR (the official Chinese competition rules), and individual events of MCR, SBR (Sichuan Bloody Rules), and RCR (Riichi Competition Rules).

The International Mind Sports Association and the Mahjong International League host the Taipei event with the co-host Chinese Taipei Mahjong Association.

This is the same event that was originally announced as the WMSG (World Mahjong Sport Games) to take place August 4 to August 12, 2018 in the city of Suzhou, China. The dates and venue were changed to their current time and place in Taipei to allow better international participation. Taipei images from Wikipedia.
