Mahjong (májiàng 麻将) was developed in China somewhere in the 19th century, based on the draw-and-discard card game pènghú.
And here’s something to think about:
In life, like mahjong, we don’t have control over which tiles we begin with — whether they’re dots, bamboo or characters, or wealth, talent or beauty. But we may draw better tiles as we go on, or receive them from others. We don’t live or play in isolation. So pay attention to fellow players. And if we play the tiles we’re dealt well, we can still win the game.
