Product Description

Black tile version of our popular and economical Japanese standard mahjong set. This modern variant is commonly played in Europe and used with the European Mahjong Association. Rarely seen in the United States, this game set is for the Japanese version of mahjong. Japanese mahjong makes use of ''riichi'' scoring rules, and a unique tile called the ''Dora'' tile which throws an element of luck and uncertainty into the game. Japanese mahjong is also the standard mahjong game in much of Europe. Tiles are made of strong, scratch resistant melamine and are jet black.

The people at Yellow Mountain Imports are really nice. They do their best to ensure that even after your product gets to you, everything is right with it. I had a missing riichi stick, and they sent me a replacement in a timely manner without any added fees. Besides that, the product itself came in a nice clean case, and was good for playing with. I've played with it at least 20 times since I received it. As a side note, the only downside about these sets is that you can't tell what the 'top' is. This leads to a problem with the white dragon, but it is something that can be worked around without any hassle. The set is easy to transport, and not heavy at all, compared to my other sets.

This is a great Japanese Riichi "Reach" Mahjong set. The pieces are large enough to stand vertical for your hand, so no need for racks. The characters look even better in person than in the pictures! Comes with everything you need to play except the rules (there is no documents shipped with the set), but that's what the internet is for.

Great case to hold everything in as well.

One thing of note: the black will show dirt/smudges much more than the white set. But the set is so pretty who cares!

I just played this again last night, probably my 5th game with this set.

PROS:
Construction quality of all the game pieces (not the case itself) are all very strong and durable. The trays that came in the case are also rigid and seem quite durable.

The paint colour choice makes all but the red tiles very easy to read even at a distance.

CONS:
The case itself should be handled fairly carefully.

For the picky, there are a number of places (dice, bones) where the paint does not well match the molded-in area where paint should be applied. To be clear, this did not affect the tiles at all for me. Each tile looks quite carefully painted.

This set is gorgeous. The blocks are sleek black as is the case. At first I didn't know what some of the tiles were in relation to our older set [particularly the red 5] but after deducting what they weren't it wasn't difficult to figure out [I haven't played with this set in a while since it was a gift for my sister so I don't remember which tile it is].
The only negative comment I have is that the picture should probably show these tiles directly next to a normal sized mj tile since these are miniature sized. I realize the dimensions are in the description, but having the picture show it would just make things less complicated/suggestive.

I asked for Mahjong set, but I recieved a book teaching me how to play Mahjiong. That does not make sense at all.
