Mah Jong is a challenging tile-based game that was developed in China during the Qing dynasty (1636 -1912) and has spread throughout the world since the early 20th century, even threatening to replace bridge in popularity in Europe and the U.S. during the 1920s. Folklore surrounding this game dates its origin back 2,500 years and links the game to Confucius and his love of birds (“sparrow” is part of the name). It remains quite popular today, and fine Mah Jong sets are much coveted by enthusiasts. Learn more about Mahjong sets here: https://www.mahjongsets.co.uk/origins-mahjong.html
