A player's experiences playing National Mah Jongg League mah jongg
I guess I'd better study up.
Great little quiz. Thanks for sharing it here!
I missed on a couple simple ones. One I'd like to know is If I call and expose but change my mind can I do that? And a related question is if in that call if I put up a joker and don't need it can I put that joker back in my hand?
Once you have exposed your tiles you cannot change your mind. You must follow through with an exposure. You may, however, change the number of tiles in your exposure before discarding - so if you wanted to put the joker back in your rack you could do that.
thanks for clearing that up

I was taught that you should not put your Mah Jongg tile in your hand, but only on the top of the rack. I may need to talk to our tournament leaders.
Placing the tile on top of the rack is a tournament rule, not an official NMJL rule. It is at the discretion of the tournament directors who feel it is good practice to prevent cheating; i.e., taking a tile other than the called discard. (It has been known to happen)
A player in our game this week discarded a tile. She still had her hand on it when she realized she could exchange it for a joker. There was a bit of a debate as to whether that was OK. When is it too late?
Once a tile is named or it touches the table it is considered discarded and it is too late to make the exchange.
Great little quiz. Thanks for sharing...
I want to start playing the game and want to know how many tiles are in a mah jong set?
If you want to play by National Mah Jongg League rules, you will need an American set, which has 152 tiles. Make sure the tiles have Arabic numerals on them and there are at least 8 flowers and 8 jokers. You can see what the tile set consists of at: https://sites.google.com/site/mahjrules/home/rules
