Mahjong at Unity Games XIX

Post by wavemotion » Mon Jan 28, 2013 2:27 pm

More of a quick report than a request for a Meetup since it just happened this past Saturday (26-Jan-2013)

I spent the day at Unity Games XIX (19) (this was the biggest turnout yet with 710 gamers). It's primarily a boardgaming event. I was fortunate enough to get in 2+ hours of live Riichi Mahjong with a number of folks participating (all of whom knew how to play) and kibitzing. Of special note is Reach Mahjong member Goldeneye whom I met for the first time and got to get in an East-only game with. My face-to-face Mahjong experience continues to climb!

I think next year I'll try to organize some Mahjong time more officially for UG20.

Well, that's great; and keep it up. And, this only means: I better step up my own efforts. :mrgreen:

Suddenly, I am curious if there are similar events near the Chicago area.
