The Chinese game of skill, luck, clattering tiles, and "100 intelligences" is more popular than ever with a growing cross-cultural audience. This handsomely illustrated pop culture celebration of the gamethe first of its kindtraces mah-jongg's storied history from its roots in China through its immense popularity in the U.S. in the 1920s to its popularity in the Jewish community and resurgence among a whole new generation of players. Packed with information for experienced as well as beginning players, this invaluable book includes features on the meaning and beauty of the tiles; mah-jongg tournaments, cruises, and online play; crystal clear explanations of the basic rules for the American and traditional Chinese games; points of etiquette; a handy resource section; and recipes for Chinese and Jewish food to nibble while players pung, chow, and kong.
