Product Description

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.

We couldn't afford Mah Jong, but enjoyed this immensely.
December 09, 2003

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.

Mah Jong lite
October 10, 2002

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.

Gin with a twist
April 30, 2001

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.
