MahJong games are said to have originated in the territories surrounding Hangchow, Nanking, Shanghai and Ningpo. The immediate ancestor of the mah-jong tile games is actually popular card-game called Ma-Tiao ("Hanging Horse"). Ma-Tiao was a simple set-forming card (or tile) game, which at first consisted of four suits from 1 to 9 and four bonus cards. Later in the 19th century This early version of mah-jong was played with a total of 108 cards of 3 suits, named Ping (cash -> circles), So (string -> bamboos) and Wan (myriads -> characters). This game seems to have evolved into a proto-version of Mah Jong, or mah-jong, late in the 19th century, probably in the hands of scholars, officials and aristocracy.
Mahjong is a tile game that can be played in a group session but Mahjong Solitaire is also a very popular type of play.
