ABOUT US ... well us is actually just me ... I am a Mah Jong player, playing Chinese rules Mah Jong. I learnt as a child in the late 60's. I have run a Mah Jong group teaching others to play since 2001.

I started collecting Mah Jong games sort of by accident in 2002. My father and I were chatting about the game we used to play with in the 60's (which my father still owns by the way) and wondering if there were others online that we could look at.

So the pair of us sat at the computer and headed to E-Bay to take a look. As you can imagine we were overwhelmed by the number of games that popped up when we did our first search. But staring at us on page one was a lovely little Milton Bradley game. It looked to be in good condition and didn't seem to be too expensive. We smiled at each other and decided to bid. The auction was due to end that evening and we both mentally noted the end time and were back at the computer to watch the auction end together.

We had no doubt in our mind that this was going to be "our" new game. The seconds ticked by and we watched the price increase. Then the auction was finished ... by shear luck we were the highest bidders ... the rest as they say is history.

I collect both Bakelite, Bone & Bamboo and when I am lucky enough to find them real ivory Mah Jong games plus a smattering of stone, card and other types of games.

I am currently re-organizing my collection and selling off any duplicates I may have and taking the opportunity to finally catalogue all my wonderful treasures.
