Mahjong is a true gem, an Asian classic imported to the Western world in 1920's and loved by generations of players since then. There are many varieties or flavours of Mahjong: American style, old Chinese, new Chinese, classic Japanese, modern Japanese or Reach, Vietnamese, Taiwanese... All different, yet fundamentally the same.

Whichever is your choice of Mahjong, you'll need Mahjong tiles to play the game. As with styles of play, there are also a large variety of different types of tiles available. The material varies — do you want bone and bamboo, classic bakelite or modern plastic? With Western indices or not? Do you need American Jokers or Japanese red fives? There are plenty of options.

For many the vintage sets are the favourite option. Mahjong stormed the Western world in 1920's, and there are plenty of vintage sets from that era. These are the sets your parents, grandparents or their parents used to play Mahjong when it first was popular in the USA. Here you can find the best vintage Mahjong sets from eBay auctions.
