Santiago's Mah Jong Page

That cool Chinese game with all the little tiles...


Mah Jong, for those of you who do not know, is a game that has been played in China for several hundreds of years, and has spread to other areas of the world. In its modern form, it is played with a set of 144 (or 136, depending on the variation) tiles divided into three suits and honor tiles. Play has often been compared to western games like Gin Rummy. This section of my site expounds upon my way of playing Mah Jong, which is fairly close to the original Chinese. However, there are hundreds of variations, with the other more popular ones being the screwed-up Japanese version and the really screwed-up American version, but you won't hear about them from me...
