Product Details

This set includes 164 tiles, 4 wood tile racks, dice, chips/money, and instruction booklet and a vinyl case. It is suitable for travel or serves as an inexpensive entry-level game for those not ready to purchase a full sized or premium set.American Mahjong is a form of Mahjong standardized by the National Mah Jongg League and the American Mah-Jongg Association – and makes the greatest divergence from traditional Mahjong. It uses Joker tiles, the Charleston, plus melds of five or more tiles, and eschews the Chow and the notion of a standard hand. Purists claim that this makes American Mahjong a separate game. In addition, the NMJL and AMJA variations, which differ by minor scoring differences, are commonly referred to as Mahjongg or Mah-jongg (with two Gs, often hyphenated).
