Mahjong is the quintessence to the Chinese, as cricket to the British.
Mahjong is a game of strategy, probability and luck.
Mahjong is an ancient game, which originated in China some 2000 years ago and is still a favourite pastime today.
The game was initially played by the elite in the palaces. The game was then introduced to Britain, USA and Asia in the 1900s.
