The Mah-Jong Card Game collection

  • Go to my collection called “The Mah-Jong Card Game” where you will find all you need.
  • Make sure that you are in the appropriate store for where you live. Check the flag at the top.

Note: Occasionally a collection may temporarily disappear because Zazzle is doing something to it’s database. Should this happen you can get everything you need for the game at Products – Mah-Jong set.

Put the items that you wish to purchase in your basket, then pay at the end.

You need the following for the complete set of game cards:

  • Game cards (1) – Flowers, Seasons, Dragons
  • Game cards (2) – White Dragon, Winds: E-S-W
  • Game cards (3) – North Wind, Bamboos 1–3

    • If you play Japanese Riichi Mahjong and wish to have the “red fives” then buyGame cards (10) – for Riichi Mahjong instead


You will also need cards to make some racks.
3 racks are required for each player. So, for 4 players you will need:

  • 2 x Card game racks
  • 1 x Card game rack stabilizers


There’s a ‘Card game dice spinner‘ if you need a dice



You will need a card which explains the differences between your normal game of Mah-Jong using tiles and  The Mah-Jong Card Game. These relate to the building of the wall and the placement of discards.

There are two versions of this:

  • The Mah-Jong Card Game – Differences  (12.7 cm x 17.8 cm)
  • Large Print – The Card Game – Differences  (16.5 cm x 22.2 cm) for those who want a larger print size

Settling up

Finally, if you don’t want to use Tallies there is a suggested way of settling up explained on another card:  The Mah-Jong Card Game – Settling up.
Again, there is a large print version of this:  Large Print – The Card Game – Settling up.

There’s an accompanying score sheet (a free PDF) which you can download then print. Click here to get it. Also a “Beginner’s score card” which can be printed.
