Mahjong Advice

    Selecting Mahjong Game

    There are two different kinds of Mahjong games that are played. Before buying any Mahjong purchase, do your home work so you will get the one you want to play. There is Western and American Mahjong games. It is not that difficult to learn how the characters are paired with the Chinese symbols on the tiles of the Western version. The more you actually play the Western game of Mahjong, the easier that will seem. Even the young children who can play a matching game can play the Western Mahjong game. The American Mahjong game has recognizable symbols that are easier to match as the game is played for entertainment.

    Buying the Mahjong Case

    Mahjong games come with cases at times. Some of the cases are like a suitcase in style and open as you would that piece of luggage. These cases can be made of leather, metal, plastic or wood. Keep in mind that the 155 or 166 Mahjong tiles are heavy. With this said choose a case that will keep your tiles safe from spilling as you transport your Mahjong game from room to room in the house or outside the home for entertaining your guests with the game. There are soft sided cases for mahjong too. Make sure that case has handles that go around the entire case ending in the handles being used for security of your Mahjong game.

    Number of Mahjong Tiles

    It all depends which Mahjong game you choose that governs the number of tiles you get in the set. Now some games give you 155 tiles while others have 166 tiles. Some of the tiles are for beginners while another set will be vintage and a bit more complicated. The number of tiles will either include jokers or not. Make sure you get the game tiles you want to play the Mahjong game you want to play. Read the descriptions of the number of tiles and then if you want a specific game that does not have the jokers in it, consider buying the additional joker tiles you desire for your game.

    Construction of Mahjong Tiles

    Mahjong tiles can be several construction materials. Be sure to get what you want. Consider the tiles that are embossed so the characters will not wear off during a game playing of several years. The size of the tiles might be a consideration while you get the correct construction of the tiles too. Some travel Mahjong games could have very hard to see characters and the tiles will be smaller to be called a travel set. Mahjong tiles can be plastic or melamine or wood. Determine what you want for the tiles you want to handle and play Mahjong with during your entertainment.

    Contents of the Game of Mahjong

    Not all Mahjong games have the same contents when you buy one. If you want a complete game consider getting di (two or three dice), slides that hold the tiles and the number of tiles you want for the Mahjong game you want to play. Having a rule book in English will be most helpful to instruct you and your guests how to begin and successfully completely play Mahjong. A tablecloth is not necessary so should not be considered in the contents unless you get it as a free gift. A case might be a big help to carry and store the game of mahjong.
