An Introduction to Mah Jong
Mah Jong is considered an ancient Chinese game but some evidence seems to point to the game being developed in China during the 1870s. The game did not reach the West until it was launched in the United States during the 1920s. In its present form Mah Jong is most closely linked to rummy, the basic premise of picking up a card or tile to complete a set of three is common to both games. A game requires four players to build the Wall of China to commence play.
