 Description
This Oriental mahjong includes 9" x 6" vinyl case and 1 1/8" tiles. Mahjong, (also written or known as mah-jongg, mahjongg, mijang, Taipei, Morejongg, Mindjongg, etc.), is a game of Chinese origin. Dating to over two thousand years ago, Mahjong is said to have originated in the court of the King of Wu. This was roughly the time that Confucius existed, which was some five hundred years before the Christian era. Within this court, there lived a beauty in seclusion. To keep herself from utter boredom, she invented a game of her own. She began to carve domino-shaped pieces of ivory and bamboo. When she was finished, she invited three of her maids to play her newly invented game. Each person was to receive 34 tiles in which they would each create a wall with. The exact rules that were applied are unknown but the lowest score is said to have been 22 points and the highest 389,928 points. It involves skill, strategy and calculation and luck. Depending on the variation which is played, luck can be anything from a minor to a dominant factor in success. In Asia, mahjong is as popular as gambling. The winning tile completes the player's set of either 14 or 17 tiles.Find matching pairs of images at the left and right ends of the lines at the various pyramid levels. The object of the game is to build complete suits - or melds (usually of threes) - from either 13 or 16 tiles. The first person to achieve this goal wins the game. After playing few games you, the player, will start developing a technique to play better games and eliminate more pieces from the board. The elimination of some pieces will open more possibilities than others; it is part of the fun to develop the skill to "clean" the board game.
