Four Winds Rule Collection European Classical

Introduction

These rules are based on classical Chinese Mah Jong, which is no longer played in Asia, but is very popular in the European countries, especially in the Nordic countries.

Compared to Chinese Classical rules, the scoring is slightly simplified, and some of the classical Limit hands have been omitted. Flowers and Seasons are not used, either. As these rules represent a kind of a common denominator amongst the dozens of different ways Mah Jong is played today, they are particularly well suited for getting familiar with the game. After learning the basics it is also easier to get acquainted with modern Chinese and non-Chinese national versions and see how they differ from the classical Mah Jong.
