A clear, illustrated explanation of the British Mah-Jong Association (BMJA) rules

  • What a Mah-Jong set contains
  • How to set out and deal the tiles
  • How then to play the game
  • How to score and settle the tally payments once someone has gone Mah-Jong

The basic rules of Mah-Jong are quite easily grasped (it’s a bit like the card game “Rummy”), but there are a number of complexities. So, for the beginner, there is a chapter which breaks the rules down into easy stages – taking you gradually towards the complete rules.

There is a chapter on Mah-Jong strategy – how best to play to increase your chances of winning – and another which answers a multitude of questions that visitors to the website have asked about the BMJA rules.
