Competitive convenience: mahjong


Recommended Posts






In the mood for a board game but can’t find a foursome to play with? Walk into a mahjong parlour in Tokyo and the staff will match you up with a set of opponents the minute you step through the door. Originally from China, mahjong has become Japan’s most popular table game. The rules can take a little while to learn but the time is worth investing. You can meet some pretty interesting characters in these places – and walk away with their money!


The games are action-packed but also surprisingly safe. Wagers are kept low by the parlours, which make money off the amount of time you play, not the money you lose.
