Re: Time for an upgrade? (ultra-luxury tiles)

Joke's on them, mahjong isn't even a board game (unless you count junk mats).

Re: Time for an upgrade? (ultra-luxury tiles)

Four weeks after seeing this and I'm still getting served ads on Facebook and Reddit for posh chess and backgammon sets. :roll:

A quick browse through some stores and a Google image search shows how unusual this is, although I did find this stock image: https://www.vectorstock.com/royalty-free-vector/mahjong-tiles-vector-50138 There's a question on Tom's Q&A (FAQ 7e) about why the 5, 7 and 9 have ...
