Thanks to Gwyn Headley and Yvonne Seeley for explaining the finer points of the game and for their many helpful responses to my questions.
Thanks to the visitors who have contacted me with questions about the rules and for pointing out the occasional error.
Thanks to Ann and Malcolm for the alternative way of paying when settling the score.
The fine bone and bamboo Mah-Jong set used to illustrate these rules was owned by Mr Joe Lees. He told me that he purchased it in a London second-hand shop in 1948 for £1.
My grateful thanks to him for the loan of his set, to other members of our U3A Mah-Jong Group and to friends who have also loaned their sets.
Sloperama’s Mah-Jong FAQ for much advice and many links.
