Happy Christmas from the Weitzs and Mahjong News!   

weitz2014

KIRKLAND, Quebec (Canada) - Even though their Christmas Card has to travel all the way from Canada to Holland, Allan and Lila Weitz never fail, like Santa. For years, they have been the first to get their Christmas card in the postbox of Mahjong News. And then, we mean a real postbox, not a digital one.

Allan and his wife Lila Weitz are long time collectors of mahjong sets. They always picture themselves on the card they send their numerous friends, in Canada and world wide. E.g. last year, we saw them shopping and wearing T-shirts with the text ‘Mah-Jongg Sets Wanted’. This year, they pose behind some of their most beautiful mah-jongg cases.

Thank you so much for your faithful Season’s Greetings, Lila and Allan. Mahjong News seizes the opportunity to share your pretty card with all mahjong friends on the globe who are the visitors of the Independent Internet Mahjong Newspaper: Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


Congratz #2, Adrie!

Adrie, you have conceptually solved mini mystery #1. Congratulations! Although I must correct you. My version is "Chi"+"Hua"+"Hua" where "Hua" stands for FLOWER. Please check it with "Green Book". Here are excerpts from it: "3.4.20 Flower replacement ("Bu Hua") When you pick a Flower Tile, you may expose it, declaring "flower" ("hua") and take a replacement tile from the back end of the wall, until there are no more Flower tiles in your hand." "3.6.1 Regulations governing verbal calls during the game During the progress of game, the player must verbalize all claims for discards, to make a chow, pung, or kong, and when picking a flower or declaring mahjong. ... When taking a Flower replacement (Bu Hua), the player must say "Hua". He should not call out the names of the tiles when discarding, and is forbidden to discuss, gossip or communicate in his native language or other foreign language."
