American Mahjong is generally played with four people, but can also be played with three. The game is played with tiles. There are three suits – bam, crack and dot. The goal of Mahjong is to build a winning hand. Each hand is made up of a combination of tiles. Tiles are chosen and used or discarded until a player completes a hand. Some hands are more difficult to make than others. Understanding how winning hands are constructed is part and parcel of learning how to play Mahjong.

Mahjong, which originated in China, remains an incredibly popular game today. American Mahjong is based on the original Chinese games but differs in a few key ways. In American Mahjong rules a "Charleston" occurs after the initial deal. This step is obligatory. Unwanted tiles are discarded in the ‘Charleston' sequence, generally resulting in a player being much closer to a winning mahjong hand. A courtesy pass may also follow the Charleston if two players sitting across each other agree. In American Mahjong rules there are more special hands than in the Chinese form of the game. The hand consists of a combination of quint, pung, kong, pair or single tiles. Another key difference is that jokers are used in the American form of the game.
