Mahjong is a Chinese ancient invention of the game game, licensing class entertainment appliances, with bamboo, bones or plastic made of small rectangular box, engraved with patterns or words, each pair of 136 (some areas of 74). The rules of the game in different regions are slightly different. Mahjong’s card is mainly “cake (money)”, “( cable )”, “million (million)” and so on. In ancient times, most of the mahjong is made of bone, can be said that the mahjong card is actually a combination of cards and dominoes. Compared with other forms of dominoes, mahjong play is the most complex and interesting, its basic play is simple, easy to use, but which changes and very much, with the combination of people vary, so become the most attractive in Chinese history One of the forms of the game .
Mahjong origin
We commonly known as ” cake “, it is actually a granary Tuen (Tuhua) is above the top view, that is “tube” is an abstract screenshot. We can combine to search a granary map (temporarily did not find a suitable top view for everyone). When food is stored, people use mats to form a barrel-shaped column space, where food is stored, and in order to prevent rain, the top is two laps of straw mat to form a concentric circle. Therefore, from the top of the granary overlooking down, we see the abstract thing is a “tube”, two granaries is the two “tube”, and so on to “Nine tube. “Later, after the war came to the south, the name appeared on the” cake “of the pronunciation, is a picture to talk about the reason, but this error is also very common to follow down, let people understand the history of mahjong further and further.
It is also an abstract figure. Careful people will find that there are two strange things inside the mahjong: one is that it is not “one”, but “one” was “bird (unitary chicken)” instead. These two questions first sell off after that. First said that the first mahjong is a “one”, then what is a Why the shape of the bar seems to have texture. The pattern of the “strip” is also a barn, but unlike the “tube” of the top view, “bar” is a side view of the barn. That is, we stand to see a barn, abstract to see it is a cylinder, then the cylinder flat, is a rectangular with a texture. And those textures are mats layer of a layer of bundles, ligation out of the formation of the pattern.

Instead of “one”: the unitary chicken appears in the mahjong, and it is very strange to replace the “one”, of course the reason is because the warehouse hugged the sparrow. As the ancient has long been the habit of armaments, food as the most important strategic material, care is a strict rule, grain loss is also a strict limit, once the loss will exceed the provisions of the head. But Chen grain, wet grain should be drying, and the barn in the sparrow too much, they not only to “grab food”, and even in a seat barn village repair their own nest, the birth of a group of the next generation. Then the warehouse grain was gone, because “into” (birth) the sparrow. This also reflects how the warehouse manager who hate the sparrow, so with a sparrow instead of a, in order to inspire (remind) their own.
The earliest carrier of mahjong is the strip of bamboo, the wide bamboo cut into 18 cm long piece, and in the above painting mahjong elements, similar to the 80’s popular in the rural card.
