Join us as we revive this key social pastime of the 1920s with a unique connection to Reynolda. Mary Reynolds Babcock’s husband, Charles H. Babcock, was Vice President of the International Mah-Jongg Corporation. Joseph Park Babcock, his brother and President of the company, wrote the influential Rules of Mah-Jongg (1920). The “Babcock Rules,” also known as the “red book,”was the earliest version of mahjong to be introduced to America and taught several generations to play the game. Explore this history as it relates to Reynolda, and learn enough of the basics to know “pung” from “kong” and “prevailing wind” from “dead wall.” Instructor Phil Archer is Director of Public Programs.
