While ReachMahjong.com deals mostly in the business and leisure of Riichi Mahjong, we do support our fellow players in events throughout the world and even play in a number of those events ourselves. The next big event in the world of mahjong is the Open European Mahjong Championship (OEMC), 2011 and will be held in Mestre, Italy from July 7-10, 2011, just outside of Venice.

This is the 4th biannual OEMC and while registration for each country is strict, you can find all the information as a fan on the official OEMC 2011 website .

One of the best things of OEMC tournaments is the tile sets made specifically for the event. The set always includes special flower tiles made especially for the region that the event is held. This year images include the famous Duomo of Florence and the Leaning Tower of Pisa. You can read about all the special tiles on Mahjong NEWS:

You won’t find the RM.com team at this event but you can be sure we’ll be cheering on our friends who are venturing over to play. Players from all over the world, even as far as Japan, will join together at this event to share new memories and play a lot of good games of mahjong. Good luck everyone! Send us a postcard.
