Mahjong is a ancient table game that was created in China. As with any quality product it was adopted by many cultures around the world. Evidence from Chinese researchers claim that contemporary Mahjong originated from Kiangsu, Anhwei near Shanghai around mid- to late 19th century, while others still contest the origin of the game even today. Mahjong isn’t very well know prior to 1905 in the rest of the world, however during the early 20th century it gradually spread to the Western world. By 1920, Mahjong spread in the states feverously.
The expatriate population of Shanghai picked up the game in the cafes that they frequented and brought it back to their home countries. In Japan, Mahjong clubs formed in the early part of the century and the rules in that country remain close to the classical game. There are 136 tiles in a set which includes 36 characters, 36 circles, 36 bamboos (each of these suits are divided into numbers one to nine), 16 Wind tiles and 12 Dragon tiles.
The longest mahjong match lasted 33 hours, and this record was set by Russian players, not Chinese. On 16 Dec 2012, four Russian players, Oleg Pretov, Nickolay Demyanov, Anton Khantimirov, and Mark Efremov sat down and dedicated 33 hours of their life to the longest mahjong match.

Today, there are actually now two Mah Jong organizations in the United States. The National Mah Jong League has been joined by the American Mah Jong Association. This association has put on Mah Jong tournaments all over North America. They are perhaps most famous for their signature tournament, which is held at the prestigious Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort which is located in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The NMJL, who conducted their first Mah Jong cruise tournament in 1986, is also known for their hosting of the 25th Silver Anniversary Cruise in 2010, where players came from Canada and every part of the U.S. to compete.
