Mahjong, also known as "mah jongg" or "majiang," is a four-player game similar to rummy except that it uses special tiles rather than cards. The game requires skill, strategy and a bit of luck. It can be difficult to locate one definitive set of rules, as there are many variations of the game. In addition to the traditional Chinese version, there are British, American and Japanese varieties. There is also a version that can be played with three players.
