Vintage ROTTGAMES Mah Jong game - 152 tiles - from my personal collection
I am delighted to offer this beautiful traditional turkey style Rottgames from my collection for adoption. I really love the colour of the tiles and the 152 tiles match really well. You will notice the tiles are slightly curved on the corners and are simply wonderful to handle and play with.
There are 3 main styles of Rottgames' games: Turkey style, Chicken style and Soaring Sparrow style. Some people confuse the Soaring Sparrow style with other manufacturers but if you look closely at the one circle tile you will spot the trademark Rottgames design.
This game is the most easily recognized Rottgames style - the Turkey bam. It was made in 3 colour options: Mono, 2-colour and 3-colour. This particular game is a 2-colour. The game is from the 1940's.
The original game would have come with 144 tiles plus 2 blanks. Rottgames tiles from a partial set have been added to this game to make it ready for NMJL or Chinese play. As you can see in the pictures the tile match is very good.
The white dragon style found in this game is only found in the Turkey bam game and was not copied by other manufacturers.
This game has 8 flower tiles, 2 bouquets numbered 1-4, plus 8 stickered tiles that can be used for jokers. The racks are a lovely swirled burgundy Bakelite. The case has its original leather handle and is in good condition. Tokens are included in the game.
