Mahjong is a game for four players that originated in China. A Korean variation allows for three players as well as some variations in Japan and Malaysia. It is known as three player mahjong. By far, the most common form of mahjong is that played by no more nor less than four players.


Mahjong involves skill, strategy, and calculation, as well as a certain degree of luck (depending on the variation played, luck can be anything from a minor to a dominant factor in winning. In Asia, mahjong is also popularly played as a gambling game. The stakes can be low, to keep the game interesting and competitive, or can be very high resulting in aggressive gambling and some social problems, as poker can be a friendly game or high stakes competition. Played with the right attitude, it is a very enjoyable and addictive game.
