The minimal line is our version of the traditional mahjong playing sets. We gave the artwork a mid-century modern design so that beginners and seasoned players alike will enjoy the simplicity.
These playing cards are for when you are traveling far flung and don't want to lug around the whole kit and caboodle around (shout out to all you Carry-On Road Warriors). We did some market research and, by far, the top priority for people was the fun/unique artwork that is very easy to read in many different lights (fireside in the mountains, beachside at dusk (these babies are waterproof!), at a rooftop bar in Marrakech so these are NOT like normal playing cards. We like to do things big, bold and beautiful at TML.
They are carried in a sturdy box that also functions as a card holder for your wall stack. Here are some tips:
- Bring your NMJL card if you are playing American Mahjong.
- Shuffle, cut the deck, and deal just like a regular card game.
- No walls, but instead stack the cards in the carrying box and that becomes your communal wall.
Travel and play has now become easy peasy. Yes, we know there are many die-hard players that will always want to travel with the Real Deal tiles and to you, we salute you and we made the perfect bag traveler just for you. This is for those leapfrogging the globe, light as a feather.
Who is our minimal gal?
Clever with a dry wit, this girl loves a good Eames chair, the smell of coffee shops, abnormally long walks on crisp days, and the pulse of NYC. Countless friends claim her as their “best” because her loyalty is only surpassed by her discreetness. Many a secret she has kept. Her penmanship is essentially modern art, and she never makes an error. You want this girl in your foxhole. Steady as she goes.
