Mah Jongg Instructions

Mah Jongg is a game of strategy and requires the ability to shift between two or more possible solutions to a problem. A bit of luck also helps! It can be somewhat addictive — you have been warned!

The Mah Jongg instructional tutorial is shown below. Just click on the link. These instructions are based on the American version of Mah Jongg which contains Jokers. In order to win the game, one player must accumulate the 14 tiles required to make one of the sequences (or hands) shown on the card which is available from the National Mah Jongg League.

Have fun! Enjoy!

Here is a one-page Help Sheet that you may want to keep handy while you are learning. I have taught many players who seemed to have difficulty with certain aspects of the game, so I created this sheet to help them.
