Amsterdam — 9 November 2017: It’s one of a kind. Puzzling out classic, intriguing Mahjong leads you to expose the truth in the world’s most famous murder mystery, Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express. 

Available for free from today on iOS and AndroidMahjong Crimesexclusively combines the classic tile game with the lavish period settings of Agatha Christie’s great detective story.

The plot thickens In an all-new take on one of the world’s most popular games, 250 levels of Mahjong Solitaire unlock clues as you travel through 5 different scenarios within Agatha Christie’s iconic mystery. As you climb into your elegant compartment aboard the Orient Express, you’ll be faced with 1 of 7 inscrutable varieties of the classic tile-matching game.

Or the tiles may have letters rather than Chinese characters, and matching those letters spells out an important facet of the case. It is endlessly entertaining and is the only Mahjong game to feature an Agatha Christie murder mystery.

“It’s amazing to see Agatha Christie’s story taking shape so brilliantly in this 21st century medium,” says James Prichard, Chairman and CEO of Agatha Christie Ltd (who also happens to be the extraordinary writer’s great-grandson).

I know so many of you are interested in teaching your children and grandchildren the wonderful game of Mah Jongg but just are not sure as to how to do it. Well, good news is here! Sally Jo Rudnick of has developed a wonderful Mah Jongg Junior card offering Mah Jongg fun for all ages. Not only is it well-designed to attract the (much) younger generation, but it definitely will help children ease into the game. Perhaps it also might work for the very senior people who want to learn the game but are having a difficult time understanding the suits, the Dragons, the hands on the card, etc. 

I am so impressed with Sally Jo and her great idea. The card is hot off the presses and to be among the first to get yours and start teaching the next generation of Mah Jongg winners, contact Sally Jo at

Some of the benefits of the card are:

  • Easy to Read Card Design.
  • Fun and Challenging Hands.
  • Rules are included on the back of the Card.
  • New Yearly Cards are mailed to you each November.
  • FREE Shipping!

Here’s a preview of Sally Jo’s creation (I have redacted the better part of the hands as the card is proprietary – get your own to see these wonderfully easy and teachable hands for yourself). And, as an added incentive, by purchasing this card you will be helping to support the JCC and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

To receive your card in time for Chanukah and Christmas, be sure to place your order NOW!


Oh, YUM! Look what I got – a very delicious chocolate coin that couldn’t be more perfect for Chanukah gelt or stocking stuffers for your favorite Mah Jongg friends (each coin is individually packed in a sweet little clamshell). Along with being absolutely adorable, they are delicious too (they are dark chocolate so that means they are good for you!). What a wonderful idea and the perfect little gift for the holidays…and beyond!

If you are interested in purchasing, contact the very creative Anna at


Our dear friend Jeri is in Japan and look what she found…private club MahJongg rooms! Don’t we wish we had these here? I know that I would be joining!
