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!

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 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 is a VERY nice set of tiles. We are a big board/table gaming family, and I was looking for something a little off the beaten path for us. The case seems sturdy enough for storage, and compact in that it holds all the tiles with no movement inside. The tiles and other playing pieces are all secured in various trays, keeping everything tidy. There's nothing that bugs me like opening a game to get ready to play and having to sort all the pieces inside.

The only thing that I think would be an improvement for this item would be to include a brief instructional pamphlet.Before ordering, I researched mahjong a bit and learned that there are many, many versions of the game. I will go back to those notes and select a set of rules for us to play by. Beginners should keep in mind, however, if they order this set, they should seek out a set of rules and instructions separately.

I received this item at a discount in exchange for an honest review.

This set has been my introduction to the game of Mahjong. This set is for following the Riichi rules but I've started out with the classic Japanese rules which I've found a little easier. So far I've really enjoyed it and I will keep playing.

The set is very nice, all the pieces have a good feel to them and they look very good. I like the coloring of the individual pieces. The case is the only detriment. It's not bad but it is lightweight and I'm afraid that it may break. I'll just have to be extra careful with it.

The shipping was extremely fast and everything was packaged very well. I purchased this set a discounted price in exchange for a review.

This beautiful Mahjong set came in a great case that makes organizing the tiles easily, there's even a slot on the inside top of the case where you can put your game instructions once you've printed them out from the internet. It was very well protected during shipping with a form fitted foam box. Shipping was much quicker than I'd thought it would be. I absolutely love this set and plan on using it for many years to come.

First a note on the shipping packaging ... Before I even got to the case and game itself I was excited. A company who takes such care in their packaging must be proud of their product. They did not disappoint ! This is a fantastic and beautiful set! The case is artfully and expertly arranged. The pieces are painted with care. The plan was to save it for Christmas... but I may not be able to wait !
