Professional Chinese Mahjong Game Set - Standard
Professional Chinese Mahjong Game Set
Standard
by Yellow Mountain Imports
This is a traditional Chinese mahjong set designed for Chinese mahjong rules. It does not contain joker tiles or racks and has only eight flowers tiles! If you are buying this set as a gift and are unsure whether the recipient plays American or Chinese style mahjong, your best bet is to purchase an American set. American sets contain all the tiles for the Chinese version of the game as well as additional tiles for the American version.
