Mah jongg has been a popular game of stacking tiles for hundreds of years. It has gained more popularity with younger crowds as they were introduced to it online and have since wanted to play with the physical tiles. There are all sorts of different mah jongg sets available and plenty of reasons as to why you would want to buy them.
1. Learn to Play
If you want to learn how to play the game of mah jongg (and not on the computer), then you will need the actual tiles, a rack, and a few other things. The game can be played individually or as a full team. Either way, before you can get started, it’s important to have all of the supplies, which can be purchased online with Where the Winds Blow.
2. Hold Tournaments
When you look to buy a mah jongg set for sale, it may be because you plan on holding a tournament. In order to play by all of the rules, there are certain supplies that you need. Rather than buying everything individually, it is more cost effective to buy a set that includes the tiles, dice, rack, and back to hold the tiles. There will often be rule books inside as well to show how the tournament should be played, taking the guess work out of the equation.
3. Teach Others
The rules of mah jongg are relatively simple once you familiarize yourself with them. Buying mah jongg sets can be a lot of fun as a way of being able to teach other people the game. The game can be broken down so that even young children can learn the game and no one is too old to learn.
Shopping for mah jongg sets can be a great gift idea. What do you get the person who has it all? Depending upon who they are, they may not have a mah jongg set because they borrow from someone else or they have yet to learn how to play the game. It can be you to show them how to play and indulge their senses with a complete set with a design on the tiles that fits their personality.
