Originally played with cards, and then pieces carved from ivory or bamboo, the Chinese game of Mahjong is well over a thousand years old. Said to have originated in the court of the Emperor of Wu, for centuries Mahjong remained a diversion exclusively for the royal class of China.

Mahjong is an integral part of their social activity. It provides not only an occasion to entertain friends, but also to celebrate or even to cultivate business clients.

Mahjong has been called "the game of a hundred intelligences". When played by experts it can be fast and subtle ? even difficult to follow.

The Book of Mahjong uses clear, accessible language and over 150 full color illustrations to introduce players to the fascinating play and captivating traditions of the game. It also includes detailed explanations of the games Cantonese, Shanghainese and Taiwanese variations, and a guide to game protocol.

Introduction

Mah Jong is a game for four players (although two, three or five may play) played at a table with a set of 144 tiles,

During the game the players hold 13 tiles. They play as individuals, not as partners. In turn each player draws one file at a time from a stack - known as the wall - or picks up a discard temporarily holding 14 tiles, then puts out one tile.

The objective of the game is to be the first player to obtain either a complete set of four defined groups of three of four tiles and one pair, or certain special hands.

The first player to achieve this structure, which need not bring the highest score, wins the hand.

Because of the absence of partnerships many find the game more attractive than some card games. It leads to less controversy. The tiles are 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.

The game still includes many interesting features of the old Chinese game but has been adapted to meet the demands of other countries. A core of enthusiastic American players has introduced limit hands with their own variations.

A problem exists with the interpretation of the rules, which may vary from one expert to another, for Clubs and groups a definite set of rules should be established at the start. The advanced player should refer to the specialized books listed in the Bibliography.

The intention of this book is to describe the play, clarify the scoring and give some alternative versions for Mah Jong , so that players may select the game that gives them most pleasure.

Editorial Review

This handsome game set, which comes in a suitcase-like carrier (complete with keys), is an ideal way to get into the ancient Chinese game of mah jongg. Played with 152 domino-like tiles (about 1.1 by 0.9 by 0.5 inches in this set), Mahjong proceeds on the throw of two dice but is no mere game of chance. The tiles consist of three "suits" (bamboos, characters and circles), two types of honors (winds and dragons), and "jokers" (flowers and seasons). The game's objective is to acquire tiles from an initial wall of face-down tiles and form them into one of several predetermined hands. Like any great game, there's a lot to learn before you can really get started, but the reward is years of playing pleasure that deepens with experience. Full instructions are included. Expert players don't turn tiles over to look at them--they just lift them far enough to rub the underside with the pad of their thumb, identifying the tile by its unique pattern of roughness. Being fluent in Mandarin is nice too, though it won't help you win. --Richard Farr
