The game Mahjong originated in China and is traditionally played using 144 tiles or cards that represent five different suits: bamboo, circle, dragon, wind and written characters. Most versions also include several “bonus tiles.” Players must match the images on the tiles in order to collect them, however matches can only made between tiles that are “free.” The player who collects the most tiles wins the game.
