If you've ever walked into a Singaporean household during Chinese New Year, chances are you've seen a group of family members huddled around a table, tiles clacking and laughter filling the air. This beloved game is none other than Mahjong, an ancient Chinese tile-based game that has become a staple in Singapore's culture.
Mahjong originated in China during the Qing dynasty and has since gained popularity worldwide. The game is played with a set of 144 tiles adorned with various symbols and characters. The objective? To be the first player to complete a winning hand by collecting sets of tiles based on specific patterns.
