The game of Mahjong appears to many to be a game from ancient China
, but it might not be anywhere near as old as that. It's precise origins in terms of age, location are still unknown and currently no one person or group is associated with it's creation. It's very likely that it existed in earlier forms, maybe as card games, before the version we currently know and love came into existence.
This particular set has been manufactured to extremely high standards. The graphics on the tiles are especially nice. The tiles are made from a very well finished resin that is tactile and free of manufacturing marks. It's typical of the sort of quality you would come to expect from the Italian producers.
Today Mah jong is as popular as ever. There are many online versions of the game available as well as app based versions and we've even seen people playing a version of it in gyms while using high tech treadmill machines. It's a classic game that has become firmly established in the west despite it's relatively recent origins from the East. This Mahjong set is one of the very best versions available. It's presented in a lovely card box which will be robust enough to last as a permanent storage solution.
