Mahjong is one of the most popular Chinese gambling games. This gambling game is played with a mahjong set consisting of tiles carved with corresponding characters, a pair of dice, sheets of paper for scorekeeping and a mahjong table.
A mahjong table is a table specifically made for this game. A standard mahjong table is an 88 x 88 x 76 cm square table with drawers on each side of the table. Drawers are present on each side of the table because this game is to be played by 4 people who will occupy all 4 sides. The drawers are there to allow each player a place to put their money, papers or extra tiles in. The surface of the table is covered with a green felt paper (similar to what a billiard table looks like). Felt paper is used because the tiles can easily slide on its surface. Green is the standard color of a Mahjong table but other colors are also available.
There are also electronic Mahjong tables that no longer require you to roll the dice and arrange your tiles manually. The electronic Mahjong table can do that for you. Electronic Mahjong tables allow faster game play because it minimizes the time you spend in arranging your tiles.
