Master the exhilarating game of Mahjong with this introductory guide.

Originally played with cards, and then pieces carved from ivory or bamboo, the Chinese game of Mahjong or "Mah Jongg" is well over a thousand years old. Said to have originated in the court of the Emperor of Wu, for centuries Mahjong remained a diversion exclusively for the royal class of China. Mahjong has been called "the game of a hundred intelligences." When played by experts it can be fast and subtle—even difficult to follow. Author Amy Lo, with the help and consultation of many master Mahjong players of different forms of the game, comes The Complete Book of Mah Jong.
