Something that is as old as mahjong cannot help but change. This gambling game has a long history and has gone from one country to another. You should not be surprised to learn that there are more than one kind of this gambling game.

Some of the known types of mahjong today include, of course, the original Chinese mahjong, the American mahjong, and the Western classical mahjong. You should not also forget about the Hong Kong Mahjong, also known as the Cantonese Mahjong. Aside from that, there also exist the other types like Fujian mahjong, Taiwanese mahjong, Filipino mahjong and Vietnamese mahjong.

Most of these variations follow the fundamentals of the original gambling game, with the exception of the American mahjong. American mahjong has the most major alteration made with the classic gambling game that some gambling fans argue that American mahjong must not be considered to be under mahjong anymore.

What were changed in this gambling game since its inception? Some variants of this gambling game have different rules in scoring, while others just use more tiles.

A lot of gambling people welcome these changes with open arms because they believe change can do good to all of us. They believe that for something to, it must change, even a little bit.

However, conservative gambling fans do not want a lot of changes to happen to their gambling game. They believe that once a gambling game undergoes a major alteration, it loses its essence.
