 Mah-jong (or mahjong) is a game which originated in China, probably in the late 19th century.

It is generally played by four players who use a set of between 136 and 144 mahjong tiles which depict various Chinese characters and symbols. It is essentially a game of skill and strategy, but also involves an element of chance.
