It shipped here quickly and is almost too beautiful to take out! The tiles are crafted excellently with the characters and symbols easy to learn even if one is unfamiliar with the foreign characters. I'm just a beginner, this is my first time ever even holding a tile in my hand so as soon as I can print the rules I'll be playing it with my Dad and Mom, might even start a Riichi club at the college I go to. If I do I'll definitely make all the purchases I need here! The only drawback I have is that it didn't come with instructions on how to play, but I can always find those online. This was a fantastic Christmas present from my mother. I thank her and thank YMImports for making this gorgeous set!
