There are many variations of Mahjong played in China and other parts of the world. Our group uses the new International Rules (sometimes called Mahjong Competition Rules) devised by China in 1998 after analysing many different forms of play and scoring. It was used for the first World Mahjong championships in Tokyo in 2002.
If you are new to the game, you will play Mahjong in its simplest form (Pungs, Kongs & Chows) for a few weeks in order to get used to the tiles and the form of play. Then a variety of proper scoring hands will be gradually introduced, and this is the real appeal of the game.
