The number of sessions depends on the needs of the group.  Each lesson starts with a 4-hour, intensive BOOT CAMP where players learn all of the basics of the game.  The multi-session lessons allow time for tactical decision making, strategy and game-play with coaching.

We offer two types of lessons:

For beginner players:  Our beginner lesson plan starts with a brief history of the game.  Next, we model different ways of combining the tiles to make valid hands.  After that, we set up the game and play the game with coaching.  Finally, we share First Principles of Strategy. 

For intermediate players: Our SKILL BUILDER lesson plan starts with exercises designed to hone tactical decision making.  Next, we share First Principles of Strategy.  After that, we work on Speed Training.  Finally, we play the game with new skills learned.  There is also a BOOT CAMP VARIATIONS lesson available upon request.
