How To Become a Better Mahjong Player?


I love Mahjong. I enjoy playing it, watching it on TV and trying to figure out how to improve my game. I’m sure you do too if you’ve read this far! This is a short blog post about the best ways to improve your Mahjong game. If you want to learn more about mahjong in general, here’s a link to the Wikipedia page:

Read the entire section

To get better at mahjong, you should read the entire section. Don’t stop halfway through or skip ahead to the next one. The best way to learn is by reading the whole thing from beginning to end.

Don’t just read the first few paragraphs of each section either, even though they’re easily digestible and make sense on their own. You’ll miss out on important details if you don’t read through all of them!

Also don’t just skim through some middle paragraphs because they seem less relevant or interesting than others – those are often where most important information lies!

Watch mahjong videos

Watching videos of professional mahjong players can be a great way to improve your game. But it’s important to know that not every video will be appropriate for you. If you are trying to learn how to become a better mahjong player, make sure the videos show players playing at the same level as you or below.

If you want to see professionals play, check out YouTube or Twitch channels such as “Mahjong Time” and “Jouer Mahjong” for live streams of professional games and tournaments.

If your goal is just learning more about the game itself, these gaming sites have many videos from experts explaining basic rules and strategies as well as tutorials that walk through each step in an individual game:

Play with better players.

Play with people who are better than you. If you’re not at least a little bit better than the person you’re playing against, it won’t be fun for either of you. You might as well just sit down and watch TV instead of playing mahjong.

Play with people who are worse than you. These are your training partners – they will help teach and improve your game because they make mistakes that would never happen if they were good players (like leaving tiles exposed on the table).

Play with people who are the same level as yourself. Playing against other beginners is great because no one is really trying to win, so everyone has fun! However, if there are only beginners around then there may not be much learning going on for anyone – in fact it could get boring quickly if all three players are inexperienced. You also want to play against other players who have different skillsets so that one player doesn’t dominate every hand (or even worse: lose every hand).

Don’t be afraid to lose.

When you start playing mahjong, you will make mistakes. It’s inevitable. You may end up losing some games because of your mistakes and that’s okay! After all, mahjong is a social game and it’s all about having fun. The key is to learn from your mistakes so that next time around, you won’t make the same mistake again.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions or ask for help. If someone taught me how to play mahjong in a quick game when I first started out but I didn’t understand what was going on (and who could blame me?), then I wouldn’t have enjoyed playing mahjong as much as I do now because I would’ve been confused and frustrated by the complexity of the game instead of enjoying myself as much as possible during my first few rounds at home with friends or family members who already knew how everything worked within their respective circles (which means they didn’t need any explanation either).

Don’t be afraid! The more questions we ask ourselves about things like “What do these tiles mean?” or “How does this card work?”, then we’ll learn more about ourselves through learning new things outside our comfort zones which can help us become better players overall–not just at one particular aspect such as strategy but also at other areas including etiquette with others who are also interested in learning how best practices can improve their experiences throughout multiple scenarios involving themselves individually rather than just experiencing things passively without being able t

Take notes.

Writing down your mistakes and good plays is a great way to improve your mahjong skills. It will also make you more aware of what you are doing wrong, and can help you with remembering the winning strategy.

Here are some examples:

  • My opponent made a mistake in this game, so I should remember this next time we play each other!
  • I made a good play here; I should try to repeat it next time!

Practice is the best way to improve at mahjong.

One of the best ways to improve at mahjong is to practice. When you practice, you are playing mahjong and learning more about how to play well. You can’t get better at something if you never do it, so make sure that you play mahjong as often as possible.

Also, when playing with other people, take note of what they’re doing right or wrong and learn from them. Use this information when playing against other players and try not to make the same mistakes yourself!


I hope this guide helps you become a better mahjong player. It took me years to get where I am today and it wasn’t easy, but with these tips it should be much easier for you. I wish you luck!
