Mah-jong is not merely a game, but also a Chinese method of fortune-telling. There are 46 tiles in the Mah-jong set. The images on these tiles contain certain symbolic meanings that make Mah-jong such a fine online oracle – making use of ancient Chinese symbolism: things such as circles, bamboo, dragons of different colors, and other symbolic animals. As with tarot, dominoes, and other methods of divination, the reader mixes up the tiles, ordinarily done in perhaps a cup or bag, selecting the number required for the particular layout, arranging them in the proper order.
