'Mahjong' is a Chinese Word that interprets clattering sparrow, flax sparrow or perhaps hemp bird. This is due to the fact that tiles when mixed up make a musical noise suggestive of the noise several sparrows squabbling over the strewn food crumbs make.
The origins of this tile game dates back around 2000 years, as a game enjoyed by the royal classes of China. For centuries, mahjong remained exclusive of the royal class. It was against the law for commoners to play. The penalty for commoners who dared to play mahjong was decapitation. Around 500 A.D., the penalty was lifted. Anyone interested in playing MahJong who desired is able to do so.
The depression of the 1930s sparked the revival of many table games, card games and board games. Among them, MahJong was being discovered by non-Chinese. Experts speculated that the resurgence of certain games came about because many were bored with movies, concerts and radio. People desired the mental agility that games of the past had to offer. If a mental challenge was what people wanted, mahjong was definitely the game, for it was often called the "game of a hundred intelligences" simply because it required much concentration. Although the game never reached its initial popularity, mahjong was revived after 1935.
As Computer games grew popular in the 1990's, MahJong became even more popular as played on a PC. you could create many tile variations and tie the game to a story, as a puzzle within a puzzle. This addicitive game has become extremely popular among PC gamers of all ages.
