Somehow my wife and I got interested in mahjong, but had never played the real thing. We wanted a game that predominantly would be played just by the two of us. Well everyone knows that you need four players to play mahjong. But why? I read the different rules on line, and other than the Japanese version which can handle three, you must have four players. But why? So we decided to try it. So I looked on Amazon for mahjong sets. Whoa! Here is the one we wanted American Mahjong Game Set with Red Wood Case but $85? That's a lot of cash to find out, yeah you do need four players. So we looked at the cheaper traveler's set, but what if we do like the game and can play it with two, then we got $20 tied up in a possibly junky set. Then I spotted the cards. Seven bucks and you are playing mahjong. It is just as mahjongy (game wise) as the tile sets but without the expense. Yes you don't have the romance of the clatter of the sparrows, but to find out if you like the game, you can't beat the cards. Also there is something to be said for portability--the cards are about the equivalent of three sets of playing cards verses a 15 pound set of tiles in an elegant wood box. So if you want to play mahjong on vacation, take the cards. The cards are good quality and attractive and I would think just as durable as any deck of playing cards. There are additional flowers and jokers so the cards can be used for either traditional Chinese or American play. Of course there are no instructions so you will need a book and a National Mahjong League Card if you want to play the current 2011 American version.Read more ›

I purchased these cards to make it easier to practice mah jongg. They are great!!! No more setting up walls (which took too much practice time). The book "Mah Jongg Made Easy" tells you what you need to know about playing the game with "kards". The only thing that was a little trying was how slippery the cards are. But, a lot of practice will take care of that. I highly recommend this product. 178 kards and jokers are included.

This set of Mah Jongg Kards is just the ticket if you can't go without a Mah Jongg game while traveling or in a space that is too small for an actual set with tiles. The only problem for my baby boomer hands was trying to hold 13 cards in my little hands. You can purchase card holders and I suggest you do that if you plan to attempt using these cards.

I found myself without my Mah Jongg set when the new cards came out for 2010, so I thought I would order these "kards" and try them. They worked out pretty well. The west winds cards were blank, but Yellow Mountain sent me replacements right away.

The cards just arrived today and I have yet to get 4 people together to learn to play. (I got the less expensive cards just to see if I'd even like playing.) I was very pleased to find:

1) All the cards were in the box. (I saw one person had a complaint that a card was missing.)
2) They were all solid plastic (I prefer them as they tend to stay nice much longer than paper)
3) There were two complete sets of both red and green dragons. One set used the Chinese symbols seen on classic sets and the other had drawings of dragons. There were THREE sets of white dragon cards: Box symbol found on some sets, totally blank cards and then a drawing of a dragon to match the red and green. Having choices like that is a nice touch.
4) As advertised, there are 8 jokers for American style play.

The only problem I had was there was a tool mark along the edge of one end of about 1/3 of the cards but I think that will go un-noticed after the deck gets used.

I suspect the cards might not be to the liking of people who love the physical dynamics of the tiles. The "wall building" and other activities in the traditional game will be reduced to simply drawing from a draw deck, but that won't bother me any. I expect to get some good fun out of this inexpensive deck.

Followup 3 years after initial review:
I'm happy to see my review got unanimous positive responses. Since my initial review I bought a real Mah Jongg tile set and have made some friends with actual Chinese players. Lucky me! IMHO the sellers of this card set provide a quality product as well as a good introductory product.

Very good cards for practicing the game of Mah Jongg. Especially now that the new 2011 CARD is arriving. I can sit with the cards and practice each hand without taking out the game with tiles. My husband appreciates the less noise!!!! Great tool for practicing the game of Mah Jongg without the expense of $50 or more for the actual tile game.

The real Mahjong has much more fun. This is good for travel when you don't have access to the real one.

These cards are a help in learning to play the tile game of Mah Jongg, especially in laying out the hands on the official card.
