Details

Handcrafted from raintree wood and painted with intricate characters, this striking game of strategy from Thailand is presented by Waraporn Khamsuk, featuring a box that houses 144 tiles painted with Chinese symbols in the traditional mah jongg style, often spelled "mahjong." Intended for up to four players, the objective of the game is to draw and discard tiles in order to craft a winning hand before the others do, with the player shouting "mah jongg!" when they win. A complex game of strategy and cunning, mah jongg is a game fit for beginners and experts alike, with a popularity stretching from East Asia to Western countries as well. The tiles are housed in a wood box for storage and travel.

Please note: This is the traditional Chinese-style mah jongg set, and not the American variant of the game.

"OK but disappointed"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I knew the tiles would be wood, however, the color is very different from the photo. My grandmothers old set was Ivory, it was lovely, however, you cannot get a set like that now. I thought this would make a good gift. Maybe I was mistaken but I thought it said it comes with 4 holders. You need the wooden holders to hold your tiles while you are playing. The dice roll OK. Over all pretty disappointed.

These puzzles are so creative, unique, and engaging! My 12-year-old puzzle-crazy student at school loves them. I have both the puppy and the piggy puzzles. I love that they are made of wood.
