Hello and welcome to our blog! We’re working on expanding our presence so we can continue to reach out to those either interested in, looking for or wanting to play Riichi Mahjong, especially in the greater Seattle area.
We recently finished our work at Sakura-con, which was held over Easter weekend at the Washington State Convention Center. Our presence has grown each year, with our room being one of the highest traffic rooms in the convention, so much so that this year we had 2 rooms. In all we had 17 tables in action, which included 5 dedicated tables for teaching, and 2 automatic tables. We hope to continue building on our successes and have an even better 2018.
Sakura-con also provides us with a bump in our weekly meetings, and in the last 2 weeks we have seen 6 new people join our club. The interesting bit is that some of the new members have been as a result of our meetup group instead of from Sakura-con. Either way the new faces are always welcome, and if you’re reading this and have not yet come to visit us, we say “what are you waiting for?”. Come on down and see what it’s all about! And if you’re still learning, no problem! We have members who will be available to teach and get you on your way to playing the game!
And if you’re experienced, or want to test your mettle against some of the best from around the North American region, check out the link to the 2017 Seattle Riichi Open at the top of the page!
