American Mahjong Big Number Set "Easy Reader" w/ All-In-One Rack/Pushers
Brand: Yellow Mountain Imports
This set is made to be very easy on the eyes. The tiles have big and bold Arabic numerals in the corner for easy reading! Arranged similarly to a vintage Bakelite set, this American mahjong set has several innovations that will make it a pleasure to play.
The case is made of strong, roadworthy aluminum with shoulder straps for comfortable carrying. The mahjong tiles themselves are standard size, with crisp, colorful decorations engraved against an ivory white background. The trays and the inside of the case is lined with felt.
This set has 166 tiles, including all the 144 tiles for classical Chinese play as well as an extra 22 tiles for the American version of the game. With this set, you can comfortably play either version. To play the Chinese version simply use the red dragons as the 'hong zhong' and the green dragons as the 'fa' tiles.

Great set, but...
Love the big legible numbers, but the case is heavy and it’s tedious to reload the tiles after play. Should have ordered a set with soft bag carrier.
The game came quickly and was just as described. This version is awesome. Large type on tiles help weak eyes see the game better. And they are the larger (larger than 1 1/8 inch tall) tiles that are a little easier to handle - 1 3/16 inch tall. I love this set.
