The other day I received an email from Judy who brought some news about Atomic hands, such as this one:
On the Marvelous Mah Jongg 2014 card there really is an Atomic hand! It reads:
ATOMIC HAND: ANY 7 PAIRS: NO FLOWERS OR JOKERS…C30
So, what is the Marvelous Mah Jongg card, you might ask…well, here is their introduction:
Marvelous Mah Jongg’s innovative, ALTERNATIVE American Mah Jongg cards were designed and developed by a player and teacher who has created a challenging alternative to the other annual cards.
Marvelous Mah Jongg cards are released annually in January. They offer more hands, increased ability to “move around the card”, with varied playable combinations.
They are based on NMJL rules using 8 Flowers and 8 Jokers and have been widely played – receiving rave reviews.
Beautifully designed, easy to read and laminated!
It’s a good idea to order this card – and be sure to get enough for everyone in your Mah Jongg group – to have a fun change from the NMJL card. Also, the Marvelous Mah Jongg card comes out in January so it is nice to have a new card and some new hands to play with while you are waiting several long months for the NMJL card to arrive in April.
Much thanks to Judy for alerting me to the Atomic hand on the Marvelous Mah Jongg card!
