Strategy varies depending on where you are in the game. As you start to draw and discard tiles, there are dos and donts to remember. I Love Mahj created an in-depth Advanced Mahjong: Early-game Strategy article that showcases the following topics:

  • Resisting the urge to pick up a discard super early in the game
  • Dangers of exposing too early, especially when a joker is involved
  • Why you should not grow a pair by grabbing a discard
  • Discarding the in-demand tiles (flowers, dragons) if you don't want them
  • Why you should not panic and change your hand too soon

Check back with us next Saturday to learn all about mid-and end game strategy.
