Mhing is a beautiful, elegant game -- a classical game. So simple that one can play it after few minutes; in addition, so varied and exciting that it can be enjoyed for years on end.
At first glance it looks like rummy: whoever can put all their cards in sequences or sets, makes "Mhing". However, you can really only win if you make as many valuable card combinations as possible.
You've got a choice: to be finished and make "Mhing" quickly -- or to form rare and valuable combinations, which are worth hundreds of points instead of just two. Lots of possibilities make the game entertaining and always exciting.
I bought this at a Toys-R-Us in the eightes. I've always been intersted in Mah Jong, but never had the cash to invest. We purchased this game and still play even today.
I can't wait for my kids to get a few years older so I can share it with them. Nice to know it has been reprited as my cards are quite worn.
A little pricy, but well worth the money.
As mentioned in the other reviews, this is a card version of Mah Jong. The difference here is that the 'hands' are rather different than in the tile version of the game.
I find Mhing to be preferable to the tile version, since there are nice player aid sheets provided, and a unique scoring system. Waiting to go out in favor of a more valuable hand is a tantalizing dynamic.The presentation is gorgeous, even if the cards tend to be a bit flimsy.
I am not entirely sure that regular Mah Jong could be played with these cards, as I do not know if all the tiles are represented, but this should be seen as a fine, evocative variant for those looking for something that can be packed away in considerably less space than a tile set. Highly recommended.
I found this game at an estate sale and picked it up. I hadn't played mah jongg before so it looked strange to me. After going through the rules my wife and I sat down and played a game.
After 8 years it's still one of our favorites.
We have introduced many players to it all of whom have picked up the game rather quickly. I would recommend this game to anyone who likes card games or people that enjoy mah jongg.
