Mah-Jong is a very popular board game on the Asian continent. The game appeared in the second half of the 19th century in China and has conquered the hearts of players around the world. Traditional Mah-Jong consists of 144 tiles and is played by four people. At the beginning of a game, the tiles, composed of different symbols of varying values, are distributed. A game consists of several rounds. The goal of the players is to make the highest combination by swapping tiles.
The player who achieves this wins the associated points. To make a Mah-Jong, a player must make four combinations (Chow, Pung and Kong) and one pair. When a player declares a valid Mah-Jong, the round ends and each player's score is counted. The tiles are then redistributed and a new round begins. The player with the highest score in all rounds wins the game.
