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!
Please send info on where, how to order your card. Thank you.

This is a great idea for a variation in play. I’ll get some!
I think it would be interesting to have these cards although when we bought them last year we were very confused by some of the hands. It was fun to see an Atomic hand on the card.
I think we should get some of these for our group – I only have one. But I remember when we bought them last year we were confused by some of the hands. In any event, it’s fun to see an Atomic hand on the card (and I noted that Flowers are not allowed – it makes sense to me).
