Mahjong originated in China, likely in the mid- to late 18th century, according to HowStuffWorks. Ya Pei, a similar game using wood and ivory cards, originated during the Sung Dynasty period of 960 to 1279 A.D. Ma Tiae, which built on the rules of Ya Pei, is closer to modern Mahjong and originated during the Ming Dynasty period of 1368 to 1644 A.D. Mahjong's popularity grew in the early 20th century, and the game was brought to the United States in the 1920s by Joseph Babcock, an oil employee working in China.
