This title Explains The 81 Scoring Hands And Rules Governing The Official Rules Of Mahjong Which Were Standardised In 2002.
From the Publisher
The new international rules are becoming the standard for Mahjong players everywhere. Now everyone can stay ahead of the game with DB Pritchard's The New Mahjong.
This ancient game has entranced people right across the globe for centuries. It's in vogue now more than ever before as growing numbers of people wake up to the intellectual challenge Mahjong poses. Until recently, it has been played in scores of different ways throughout the world but all that is set to change. The Chinese government recently declared Mahjong to be an official sport, simplifying the rules and standardising the game throughout the country. These have been adopted as the official rules for all future international events. Previous forms of the game will inevitably give way to this, the new Mahjong standard, bringing players together where once the variations divided them.
This book satisfies beginners and accomplished players alike with clear descriptions of each phase of play, thorough instructions for the complete beginner, every one of the 81 winning hands clearly presented and fully illustrated, a guide to scoring and sample hands for practice.
Pritchard, a leading international games authority, brings Mahjong right into the 21st century. It is essential reading for players everywhere. It's time to play the new Mahjong.See all Product description

As a substitute, I would highly recommend Alan D Millington's 'Complete Book of Mah Jongg' for a definitive introduction to the traditional Chinese rules, strategy and philosophy of this fascinating and little-known game.
