Drawing inspiration from the traditional version of Chinese mahjong, this whimsical, nonsensical design of the Mother Nature mahjong set was made for play with most of the different rule sets of the game in mind.
Mahjong is a family game for me. My late mother, Mary Ann, taught my siblings and me how to play mahjong as children fifty years ago. At the time, we ranged in ages from five to ten. This set was designed from my heart, with my beloved mother in mind, and is a loving tribute to her.
Within the Mother Nature set, you will find fairies working in the garden, birds playing in the bamboo, fluttering butterflies in the dots, junk ships at sea… All part of the whimsy that I hope brings you, your family, and your friends many smiles through the years as you play with this set.
