中评社台北10月21日电/对美国人来说,中国的麻将已不再是老祖母打发时间的玩意儿。随着对1960年代初的怀旧风席卷美国,许多美国年轻人也爱上方城之战,甚至成为曼哈坦一些休闲场所的热门活动。

华尔街日报报导,以前的麻将牌是用象牙制造,现在大多是塑胶。德州一个网站出售的麻将牌,价格从80元到975美元不等,五、六年内生意成长四倍。

联合晚报引述报道,纽约犹太传统博物馆举行的麻将展览,吸引大批游客。展览会主管梅莉莎‧马登斯说,都市男性现在流行玩扑克牌,年轻女性则恢复打麻将。她与一些大多为二、三十岁的同事,经常在午餐时间打几圈。

纽约时髦社区是这股麻将热的中心,不过全国麻将联盟表示,他们在全国各地的新会员不断增加,连南达科州小村都有人加入,会员也从1970年代和1980年代初黯淡时期的10万人增加到大约40万人。

一批年轻女子入夜后经常聚在纽约市布碌仑一家酒吧切磋牌技;29岁的税务分析师黛文‧盖瑟则在亚利桑纳州史考兹谷号召朋友学打麻将。盖瑟说,朋友、男友和丈夫百般取笑她们居然玩这种老太太的游戏,可是她们乐此不疲。

麻将在1920年代曾风行美国,1950年代和1960年代初再度兴起,中产阶级白人妇女还流行举行麻将之夜,在家里挂灯笼,并穿着中国式服饰。但是,1970年代随着愈来愈多女性外出工作,许多人不再有时间流连牌桌。

现在的麻将迷经常在公园、酒吧和咖啡馆打牌。全国麻将联盟也主持线上麻将,还有网站协助玩家在附近地区寻找同好。但是,对于许多麻将迷,最高享受还是与三个好友围桌而坐,一边吃喝聊天,一边打牌。
