Mahjong is a game of both skill and luck that originated in China many centuries ago and was brought to the West in the 1920's. It is always played with four players seated around a table using tiles. The first person to match a hand of 14 tiles and thus "call mahjong" ends the game. The excitement of mahjong lies in the decisions that you will constantly have to make. Like poker, you will learn a lot about your opponents and adjust your strategy according to their strengths and weaknesses.
