On yesterday’s posting I showed you a number of hands from our most recent Mah Jongg Wednesday. But I accidentally omitted the hand I was most pleased about – my winning Atomic hand!

This was an exciting win  – Atomic hands are always exciting when they are winners – but if you look carefully in the picture then you will see how early on in the game I was able to declare Mah Jongg. There really aren’t that many discarded tiles. Here is the hand:


I must admit that I don’t think Flowers (and of course, no Jokers) should be allowed in an Atomic hand but in this particular case I was very happy that the OMs have a table rule allowing Flowers to be used! By the way, check out those exquisite One Bams from this Bone and Bamboo set – the carving is so beautiful on them – they are almost three dimensional.
