Mahjong

(We deleted Amazon affiliate links from here, thanks for understanding.) Mahjong is a game that originated in China, finding its way to America and Japan in the early 1920s. Its name is derived from the sounds made by the tiles clicking together during the game: 'mah' meaning flax or hemp plant is a reference to the sound of the plant's leaves clicking in the wind; 'jong' meaning sparrow, recalls the chattering of the birds.

Even though mahjong is easier to learn than chess, many find the intricacies involved in mahjong to be more interesting.
