At a clubhouse nestled in the mountains, a once friendly game of mahjong was about to commence. The “regulars” took their usual seats while the more casual players sat at the first open table. There was hardly ever fresh blood within this room and for good reason — this was a close-knit group where small town gossip and drama ran amuck. This beloved Mahjong Club was forced on hiatus during the height of covid and, after a year of waiting, regulations were relaxed and people felt comfortable coming back while wearing a mask.
