Mahjong is a very popular gambling game played using tiles and small wagers. The game is Chinese in origin and has been around for hundreds of years. It first became popular during the Qing dynasty in the middle of the 17th century – and people have been playing it ever since.
While mahjong is an old game, that doesn’t mean that every mahjong set has to look exactly the same. In fact, devotees of the game take pride in the appearance of their personal sets much in the same way that bowlers take pride in their bowling ball bags and other accessories.
