The video, which was a news report by KNOE 8 News, showed a number of these middle-aged and elderly ladies expertly playing Mahjong and sharing why they love playing it. One of them was quoted as saying,

“It’s like no other game. And it’s got such history, such beautiful tradition, that if your grandmother played it and then your mother played it, it’s almost impossible not to want to pick up the tiles and start to play. The sound of them, the feel of them.”

“They chat, they bring a bottle of wine, they’re just having a really, really good time. It’s the camaraderie. It’s changed people’s lives.”
