The Game of Mah Jong Illustrated by Betty Maloney, Patricia A. Thompson
An invaluable handbook for Mah Jong newcomers and experienced players alike, with fifty-one fully-illustrated hands.
Although Mah Jong has been played by many nationalities through the ages, there are few books on the game. Some early books, translated from the Chinese, make hilarious reading and are virtually impossible to comprehend. Most books for beginners assume that the reader has some elementary knowledge of the game. In this book, the player is introduced to every phase by a clear explanation accompanied by illustrations, which enable an easy step-by-step development of the game. Scoring is set out in simple tabulated form, with illustrations of scoring for specific hands.
