I bought these and I'm not sure they are worth the original 9.99 I paid plus shipping. Shortly after I received them, I saw the exact same deck on a mahjong website stating the webmaster can buy them for $1-2 at Chinatown in LA. The second time I gently put them back in their case, the case split all the way down the side. If you aren't near a Chinatown and are going to keep them in a different case, then you would probably be happy with them. All directions included in the deck are in Chinese, so you need to know how to play or get directions to play from some other source.

I bought these for $2-3 to take with me cross country to teach family how to play mahjong, since bringing a full set of tiles would have taken a lot of space and weight. Overall I'm pretty happy with them, and they got the job done.

Pros:

-Lightweight and portable

-Cards are narrow, which makes it easier to hold 13 cards in your hand.

-Cards are stiff and well laminated. They felt solid when playing and showed no wear after 2 full 4-player rounds (though with enough play, I expect them to soften/wear out like other playing cards).

-Easy to set up/put away; we just shuffled and dealt cards, and left a pile in the middle for drawing rather than taking time to set up walls.

-Could write arabic numbers and wind directions on the cards in sharpie (since people didn't know how to read Chinese). Side benefit was that people could learn some Chinese characters;)

Cons:
-The narrow format and stiffness, while nice for holding a hand, makes it hard to shuffle with a normal bridge shuffle, and tall piles can fall over more easily than other playing cards; recommend shuffling by mixing everything in the middle like you would with real mahjong tiles, and stacking into a couple piles for drawing.

Things to know:
-No instructions - only cards are included, so you definitely need to know how to play mahjong outside of this deck.

-As another reviewer noted, the box IS flimsy. However, I think it may actually be designed to come apart fully to make it easier to put the large deck back in and fold up around it. It was actually helpful for me for putting things away. If you prefer a solid box that stays a box, tape around the edges for this or find another box.

The deck arrived in the mail today and I quickly checked the product out. First thing you'll notice is how small the cards are compared to regular playing cards--about half the width. Allows for better placement of the dead wall and dora indicator spots in my opinion, not to mention since a Mahjong hand is twice as large as a poker hand the smaller size makes the hand feel much less bulky.

Cards are very lightweight and portable. Probably wouldn't be a good option to use for outside play since even a light breeze could ruin a game, but are nice to bring along for an inside venue, such as a family get-together or some kind of small party. Assuming, of course, that everyone there knows how to play (Mahjong can be complicated to learn).

A good alternative to the tiles if you don't have the money to get them, or would rather have something more portable. At first I was a little confused on how I should set up the dead wall using cards, but just using the top or bottom 14 cards and setting them up like you would with tiles seems to get the job done.

As far as educational values go, Mahjong scoring is good for math, and the critical thinking skills you'll use in building your hand and deciding on your waits/discards really exercise your brain. If you don't come from an east Asian background, you'll also be learning a popular game from another culture along with some Chinese or Japanese terminology depending on the ruleset you use.

I should point out that this deck will work with either the classic Chinese Mahjong or Japanese Riichi Mahjong. If you don't mind marking up your cards, you can even mark one set of 5's with a red dot (red dot stickers would do great) to play European Mahjong Association (EMA) Riichi.

We purchased Mahjongg Kards so we can play while camping, without having to haul our big tile set. We like the Kards so well, that we purchased more decks! A deck to have in the house, and decks for family members who don't have a tile set.

the red package of the cards gave up immediately, as the glue does not work at all. it's merely like a wrap, not a package.
and the cards are too long (over two times larger) in comparison to the width so it's so prone to breaking.
