is a skill game
for four players that originated in China. Mahjong
involves skill and strategy
as a certain degree of chance. Depending on the variation which is played, luck can be anything from a minor
to a dominant factor in success. In Asia, Mahjong
is also popularly played as a gambling game. Today you can
play online Mahjong
for money. In the game, each player is dealt either thirteen or sixteen tiles in a hand
(depending on the variation being played). On their turn, each player draw a tile and discard one, with the
goal of making four or five melds (also depending on the variation) and one pair, or "head". Winning comes
"on the draw", by drawing a new or discarded tile that completes the hand. Thus a winning hand actually
contains fourteen (or seventeen) tiles.

Chinese, and májiàng
History of Mahjong
: One of the myths of the origin of Mahjong
suggests that Confucius, the great Chinese
philosopher, had developed the game in about 500 BC. Also, this myth claims that Confucius was fond of
birds, which would explain the name "Mahjong
" (sparrow). However, there is no evidence of Mahjong's
existence before the Taiping era in the 19th century, which eliminates Confucius as a likely inventor.
Due to the solid form of the tiles, Mahjong
is sometimes classified as a 'domino game
'. This is unrealistic
as the tiles are not double-headed like a western domino. Mahjong
is more similar to western-style card
games such as rummy
with the unusual extra characteristic of having a 'hard' card.
