An Overview for Newbie’s on Mahjong Online Games

Mahjong, a game traditionally played in China, uses a set of tiles. These tiles are quite similar to dominoes, that is, one side is smooth and the other is printed or embossed. Each set of Mahjong tiles is divided as follows:

First come 36 character tiles, then 36 circle tiles and 36 bamboo tiles, followed by 12 dragon tiles, 16 wind tiles, 8 season tiles, and finally 8 flower tiles.

Although there are now many variations of this game available, this game is generally played with 144 tiles and includes 4 players. The main objective of the game is simple; each player must remove the tiles and discard them.

Mahjong Solitaire is another variation of the Mahjong game that involves a single player and a computer. The player can select a design and the computer generates a game based on this design. The player has to make pairs of identical tiles and remove them from the board. You  cannot select any tile that is under another tile or that is partially covered by another tile. To win the game, the player must clear the board completely. This game involves strategic thinking and players must focus and plan their moves if they want to win.

Mahjong is a very popular game, more in the east than in the west. The World Mahjong Organization (WMO) located in Beijing, China, is responsible for organizing the first World Championship tournament.

This game originated in China, but was brought to the West in 1920, although an American anthropologist named Stewart Culin has found written accounts of the game as early as 1895. Beginning in the 1920s, Abercrombie & Fitch sold the first Mahjong games in When this became a hit in New York City, Ezra Fitch imported more Mahjong games and sold a whopping 12,000 games. In this way this was introduced in the west and a Mahjong craze took over the whole country. Games scholar David Parlett believes that even Western card games like Rummy and Conquian have been derived from the game of Mahjong, as these games also involve the concept of drawing and discarding tiles.

As the internet gained popularity, the online version of the game also became a hit, as it does not require four players and can easily be played by a single person on a computer, where the computer generates a game based on the preferred layout. .
