THE Full Course

Overwhelmed by Mahjong?

We make it easy to learn this complex and difficult game. We help you learn quickly and feel confident enough to play with others, or online. With our course it is easy to break into the game as a beginner.

Mahjong game play has so many components, it is easy to get lost. 

  • Do you get confused by all of the rules, hands, game play, terminology?
  • Is it really stressful to sit down with friends and family who expect you to play at a higher level?
  • Do you feel ashamed to have questions while playing because you do not want to annoy other players?

These are all experiences we have when learning to play and our course will help you overcome these barriers.

About Mona Stickley

Our founder, Mona, was born to parents from Macau and Hong Kong. She was introduced to Hong Kong Mahjong at the very young age of 3. Through the years she played mahjong with people from many different cultural backgrounds, generations, experience levels, and languages. She played with people completely new to the game, very high level players, and seniors in their 90's. She began teaching others how to play mahjong, and enjoys helping people learn the complex Hong Kong style of mahjong regardless of their background or skill level. 

Mona is a disability artist and multiple brain injury survivor. At times, she lost the ability to walk, read, and speak. However, she could still remember how to play mahjong. When her disability became severe, she tenaciously pursued progress by using mahjong to remember how to function and interact with others. Recalling the Cantonese mahjong terms helped her progress further. For Mona, Mahjong represents joy, community, resilience, longevity, and cultural connection. She is passionate about sharing it with others. Mona runs Mahjong Party with her husband, Jason.

Frequently Asked Questions

When do I get access to the course content?

You get immediate access to module 1. Additional modules are available to you as you move through the course. This is the Fast Track version so modules are ready when you reach them. You can go at your own pace whether that pace is fast or slow. You get lifetime access.

What if I'm not happy with the course?

We hope you will be delighted with the course. However, if you are unhappy with your purchase, we offer a 30 day risk free trial period. We can provide a refund within 30 days of the date of purchase.

Couldn't I learn from a friend or family member?

There are many ways to learn mahjong. You can learn from friends, family members, a local organization, seniors group, or from university club. You can also watch multiple videos online to access lessons, often for free. We offer our courses as another option, perhaps even in addition to your chosen method.

We built our course in response to our experience in teaching others, and our research into the problems people encounter when learning how to play mahjong. Sometimes people struggle to learn from family or friends. Sometimes organizations or groups may not include you if you are not at a certain level yet. We want to offer a way to learn how to play mahjong from the comfort of your own home, where you can take your time to learn, and go at your own pace.

Hong Kong style mahjong? Do I have to be from Hong Kong to learn how to play?

Not at all. This style can be played by anyone from anywhere. 

Do I need to be able to read Chinese characters?

English is the main language for the course.

Does the course include subtitles in Chinese or any other language?

We are working on providing some translations in Cantonese and in both simplified and traditional characters, but the translations are not up at the moment. However, with your lifetime access to the course you will get access to any upgrades we do to the lessons. If we add in subtitles or opt to provide additional materials to be included in the course, you will get free access to those as soon as they become available.

We would like to eventually offer our courses and our books translated into Cantonese, Mandarin, French, Japanese, Spanish, Portuguese and in other languages that our customers request.

Can I learn at my own pace?

Yes! You get lifetime access to the course so you can learn and practice at your own pace. The lessons are all online, short, and available 24/7, so you can move through them as quickly or slowly as you want. 

Can I go back through the lessons I’ve completed?

 Absolutely! You can go back through your lessons as many times as you want.

Will I only be able to play Hong Kong Style Mahjong?

 While we guide you through Hong Kong-style Mahjong, the skills you learn enable you to play any style of Mahjong with speed and confidence. You will notice in the beginning of each lesson that we specify what style that lesson pertains to. It will either say:

  1. This lesson builds skills for any style of mahjong – you can apply these skills to any style of mahjong
  2. This lesson is based on the Hong Kong style of mahjong – you can still learn these skills, when you play a different style of mahjong you just transfer your knowledge and change some elements to apply to whatever style you are playing
