It was love at first sight, the cool clicking tiles, the beautiful designs, the exotic names Pung and Kong‚Ä¶I just could not get enough! I have always enjoyed strategy games, but this WAS THE BEST!
After playing for a few years and teaching a few more, I kept thinking, why are the NMJL hands so similar year after year? As a pattern and number junkie, I thought I would give making a card a try. I gave them out to friends for the holidays‚Ä¶..it was a hit and soon players from around the country were calling and asking for a copy. Marvelous Mah Jongg was born!
I have taken all the the tiles and created a card that can offer you many hands with the combinations you turn over when you divide the wall. Winds are no longer relegated to just a few hands, but are incorporated around the card, so if you have NEWS you can use them in the EVEN section, ODD section‚Ä¶..all over! You can also change your hand much more easily with a few exposures up on your rack‚Ä¶‚Ä¶players usually have 3 or 4 different possibilities. We also use numbers and letters to spell words, (think of texting) making it extremely fun!
Our cards are released annually in January, and are themed around the Chinese Lunar New Year. Our 2016 Marvelous Mah Jongg Year of the Monkey card will be our 8th annual card, and is eagerly awaited by thousands of players around the US and Canada. It is a barrel of fun! I will be answering strategy questions and hand questions in this forum, if you have one, let us know!
