It's a mahjong set that works. The tiles look nice, and feel sturdy.
First ever Mahjong set, arrived safely and as expected. The case is great for portability. The tiles are relatively small, so it's an easy fit for most square tables. Not sure if I would use the point sticks at the moment, but would be useful for when I get friends together and everyone learns. Dice are tiny and I prefer using other d6 dice, but good for determining order and fits with the rest of the pack. East/South marker is good for keeping track of winds. Probably recommend a wheel or something to supplement the set if you want a more orderly tabletop. If you have large hands, probably advise trying a different set, but it's fine for most people. The colors are more black than green, the reds are pronounced with dora tiles, and the character tiles and non-green bamboo/dot segments are like a maroon.
This was a gift for our son. He was so excited when he found out we got exactly what he asked for! Thank you for making it so easy on your website, shipping so quickly and being true to your product descriptions!
My husband and I love this Mahjong set. We recently got interested in the Japanese style after inheriting an American style set from the grandparents. The case is stylish and the perfect size for travel. For beginners, if you aren't sure which crack is which or the difference between north/south/east/west, I would suggest downloading a cheat sheet to follow along with until you're comfortable. We're still getting used to accurately scoring but the betting sticks are so cute and fun to dramatically throw down when you call Riichi. This set is all you need to get started playing mahjong with your friends and family! Shipping was quick, efficient and I got every update I needed. It came in time for my husband's birthday and arrived safely. If you're on the fence, you should just order it. It's a blast.
This is a very good set of mahjong tiles. They make a nice noise on use, and are a good weight, with a solid feeling. My one qualm is that the green tiles are black, not even a dark green, but that is made known to the customer through the pictures, and isn't a problem with the product.
