This is fantastic!  I'm really impressed with your painting job, and how nicely everything came out.  Smiley

wow, those are beautiful! great job with all of the complicated Chinese characters, and the flowers! Have you played with those tiles yet? It seems like the shape might make it difficult to play with them, because it would be hard to stand them up in your hand, so I'd be interested to see how that works out.  really gorgeous work, though!

We haven't played with them yet (our friends who taught us just had their first baby and they're the only other people in the area we know that know how to play!) and it does worry me a little, but I've seen some mahjong sets that come with tile holders... kinda like the ones you get in Scrabble. We may just steal the Scrabble ones just in case!

Wow, this is truly fantastic.  What a lucky man your husband is to receive such a beautiful and thoughtful gift.  I love Mahjong, and this set is just superb.  If you can't find anyone to play with (how sad does that sound!!) how about playing solo,  I often play this on my own and find it helps me win down/chill out, whatever you want to call it, as it can get so engrossing, and you really can't 'cheat' to make things easier for yourself.

Oh this is great. My boyfriend has been looking for a nice mahjong set lately. Maybe I could make him one too. Smiley I wonder if you could paint different things on them. Like when you play Mahjong online you can pick different tile themes. Maybe make it Nintendo themed or something geeky and fun. lol

I didn't even think about using tile holders! They'd probably work pretty well for those. Our set has really thick tiles so it's easy to stand them up on their own and we don't need the rack things.  It's too bad you can't find anyone to play with! It's such a fun game. Whenever we can't find people to play with we just teach more people. Tongue Out of curiosity, which version do you play?
