Mah Jongg

I received a proper Mah Jongg set for Christmas. It came in a nice cherry case. All together it's somewhat heavy--like carrying around 4-5 sets of dominoes or so. Today I sat down with a couple of friends and Cliff and proceeded to learn how to play.

First, I must state that it is very hard to learn a game when the instructions are in Engrish. We struggled through those instructions until I proclaimed I was going to google some instructions in English. I found a decent page to print off and we muddled through both instructions. After my friends left, I discovered Mahjongg.com. That site had illustrated and easy to understand rules. Though don't be mistaken to think Mah Jongg is a simple game.
