Happy Christmas from the Weitzs and Mahjong News!   

weitz2014

KIRKLAND, Quebec (Canada) - Even though their Christmas Card has to travel all the way from Canada to Holland, Allan and Lila Weitz never fail, like Santa. For years, they have been the first to get their Christmas card in the postbox of Mahjong News. And then, we mean a real postbox, not a digital one.

Allan and his wife Lila Weitz are long time collectors of mahjong sets. They always picture themselves on the card they send their numerous friends, in Canada and world wide. E.g. last year, we saw them shopping and wearing T-shirts with the text ‘Mah-Jongg Sets Wanted’. This year, they pose behind some of their most beautiful mah-jongg cases.

Thank you so much for your faithful Season’s Greetings, Lila and Allan. Mahjong News seizes the opportunity to share your pretty card with all mahjong friends on the globe who are the visitors of the Independent Internet Mahjong Newspaper: Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


Mahjong Competition Rules?

mcrbookletUTRECHT - In the World Mahjong Championship 2010, ‘Mahjong Competition Rules’ are applied.
These rules were formally established in 1998 by a Chinese state committee, after the government had lifted the ban on mahjong, which dated from 1949, when the People's Republic of China was established. The rules of the ‘new mahjong’ were initially called ‘Chinese Official’, but also ‘International Rules’.

The first world championship where the CO rules were used, was held in Tokyo, Japan, 2002; the second in Chengdu, China, 2007.
The rules are controlled by the Beijing based World Mahjong Organization, which cooperates with the European Mahjong Association, an umbrella where the European national mahjong leagues are associated with.
