Description: Flowers Updated!! The only 3D Flash Mahjong on the web. Mahjong is a Chinese game of skill, which involves four players. Although the game play in general is similar in all of the versions of mahjong, the game pieces and scoring, however, slightly differ depending on the regional variations.
Almost similar to gin rummy, the object of mahjong is to build sets, as well as get the highest point value. In order to do this, each player selects and discards tiles (the game pieces, bearing different designs) until an entire set of combinations has been made. There are still scoring variations to be corrected for this HK edition.
Instructions: The most popular variation, is the Hong Kong Mahjong style. This version has been made even easier to play with a variation of winning methods.
So let's start the ball rolling (in this case, the dice), and begin playing Hong Kong Mahjong.
The Hong Kong Mahjong set
The basic Mahjong set has 136 pieces, which contains 36 distinct kinds of pieces (4 of each kind). There are three suits, which run from one to nine.
