Mah-Jong Web Sites

 

Mainly English language Mah-Jong web sites are listed and I’ve tended to exclude those just giving descriptions of other rules.  There are many of them, and you can find an exhaustive listing of such sites here.   A number of the sites I have included do have good descriptions of many types of rules.

 

I’ve also avoided including many of the sites which only concern themselves with online and other computer based games.  A number of sites have been included which give plenty of entries into this side of Mah-Jong.

 

There’s a large body of  “Mah-Jong”  videos in You Tube.  I’ve just included a sample; those that I judged to be of most interest.

 

There are links to the Home pages of web sites  (click on the heading or banner)  but also links to particular topics  (see Keywords below).  However, in some cases it is not possible to give a direct link to a  topic and you will need to do some navigation within the web site  (usually just one click).
