THE TILES :

American Mah Jongg is played with 152 tiles, eight of which are Jokers. There are three suits, commonly referred to as Bams, Cracks, and Dots.

In addition, there are Wind tiles (North, South, East, West) and Flower tiles.

Craks Bams Dots

Each suit has a  Dragon.

The Dragon is NOT WILD. It is simply another tile, just as a queen or king in cards.

On the NMJL card it is referred to as a "D".

Bamboo Dragon = Green

Crack Dragon = Red

Dot Dragon = White or "SOAP"

 

Note: The White Dragon (SOAP) is also featured on the card as "0". When it is used as a "0" it becomes suit-neutral so that it can be combined with

cracks, bams, or dots.

BEWARE:  The #1 Bamboo is a picture of a bird, not a bamboo. It is therefore referred to as "Bird Bam" and looks very similiar to a FLOWER.
