Mah Jong Afternoon
Welcome to Mah Jong
The game of Mah Jong originated in China centuries ago but it is only in recent years that it has been widely adopted in the Western world. The Eastern and Western games vary somewhat but the general principles of play and scoring are very similar. When Mah Jong was introduced to the West the rules were altered and amended to make it more interesting and exciting. Furthermore individual Mah Jong Groups may opt to use their own interpretation.
At first the game seems most complicated but actually once the basic rules have been mastered a player has learnt all there is to know about Mah Jong – the rest is Luck.
Mah Jong is played with tiles which are both a joy to behold as well as to handle and play becomes more interesting as the nature of the hand changes with each exchange of tiles.
Mah Jong is a game for the individual which does not involve partners and does not lead to the type of controversy sometimes associated with certain card games. Each player accumulates their own points which make it an intriguing and thrilling game and enormous fun to play.
