Anyone know where can I find cheap mahjong tiles? Just to play for fun, mainly cos read about its health benefits. No need very good quality ones. I have checked out carrefour at Suntec and Giant at Parkway and they no longer have stock. Thanks in advance. :)

I paid mine for $280 for a quality set at People's Park .... but my friends said the same set can be had for half the price in Hong Kong ....

cant be right.. the cheapest should be 20-30 dollars iirc. The cheapest tiles are those that's 2 colours tiles.. In truth, i won't buy the very cheap type as it might split if you accidentally drop it and the colour will fade a little after much use. Also, choosing a smaller size tile will be cheaper.. Largest i think is A1, then A2,A3 etc..

If u are a serious mahjong player, the money that u win or lose in 1 game is about the cost of the whole mahjong set already.

i think my skin too thick, cannot feel the tiles even though i have been trying the last 5 years..

only thing i can feel is "bai ban". haha.

to TS: get a good set. dun just get any lousy set, as MJ is very addictive, and soon you will be using it soo much, you will regret not getting a good set in the first place.. haha.

Thanks for the all the inputs so far.

Just to clarify. It is just for leisure and I have no intention of gambling. In fact, as of now, I still dunno how to play it. :embrass: My main intention is to play with my grandma as I have read it is good for elderly pple as it helps to stimulate brain activitiy. :)

I used to play with my grandma while she was still around, it does help with the brain activity. We had to simplify the game rules to make sure its not out of her reach. Its a good bonding activity.

On a related note, you can also consider getting her a Nintendo DS if she is into such stuff and her eyesight is not bad. I got my parents one and they really enjoyed the simple card games.
