Mah-Jong is a 19th century Chinese game played with engraved tiles, traditionally made from bone & bamboo dovetailed together. It was introduced into the Western world in the 1920s. This website explains how to play Mah-Jong using British (BMJA) rules…… as well as containing a lot of other information about the world of Mah-Jong.
Playing aids & book
All the members of the Mah-Jong club that I belong to like to have my playing aid to hand.
If you live in the UK you can purchase it here, along with my book (which explains the BMJA rules, Mah-Jong strategy and gives answers to the many questions I have received).
If you live outside the UK you can obtain playing aids from my Zazzle store. They explain all the British (BMJA) rules on 5″ x 7″ (12.7cm x 17.8cm) cards. A larger card size is available for those who would prefer a larger print size.
The Mah-Jong Card Game
This allows you to play Mah-Jong using small cards – a less expensive option than tiles and easier to take on holiday.
All versions of the game can be played with these cards, including American Mah-Jongg and Riichi Mahjong.
The rules are kept as close to the normal game as possible, only differing to allow for cards to be used instead of tiles. The differences are explained on a playing aid card (and in the instructions).
The graphics created for this website have also been used to design a selection of gifts which, again, you can obtain from my Zazzle store. Here is a small selection:
