Mah Jongg is a very old Chinese parlor game for 4 people. Supposedly, Mah Jongg was played some 4000 years ago, but only by kings and high Chinese castes. As a result of numerous political upheavals, this gambling game also came among the people over the years. In the 1920s, Mah Jongg was the number one fashion game. Whether in Europe or America, there was a real Mah Jongg boom. And just as fast as it came, it disappeared around 1930 again. Since then, it has only been played by a manageable number of lovers. Mahjongg's gameplay is similar to the character of Rummy and Canasta.
