Steeped in the traditions of the Qing Dynasty, the classical Chinese game of Mahjong has undergone a popular resurgence throughout the 21st century. With such spectacular sets as those created by Jaques of London, it is no surprise that the tile-based title has continued to thrive throughout the world, even remaining the most popular table-top game, amongst players in numerous Asian countries.
The perfect strategic blend of skill and chance, mahjong challenges players with matching a selection of 14 tiles. Each tile is drawn at random and adorned with a numerically valued symbol. Players take turns to roll the dice and trade tiles, until counting the final points tally, to declare a winner.
Jaques of London’s Mahjong sets are exquisitely crafted. Each tile is beautifully illustrated, with vibrant colourings and high-quality materials utilised throughout the designs. Presented in leatherette and fine walnut hard wooden cases, each piece is worthy of new and experienced players alike.
Mahjong continues to pass new gaming traditions to a whole new generation. Rich in superstition, folklore and far-eastern mysticism, it is the perfect way to bring global gaming legacies into the 21st century.
