Singaporean Mahjong Scoring Rules
39,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online.Singaporean Mahjong scoring rules are similar to that of the Chinese Old Style / Hong Kong system, but accounts for the different set of tiles used therein. The Singaporean Mahjong tile system consists of 148 tiles, and is slightly different from that of other regional Mahjong tile-sets. It therefore follows that the rules of the game somewhat vary from other scoring systems in the region. Points are scored generally from the level of probabilistic difficulty in amassing the winning hand. If monetary rewards (and losses) are involved, it is common that playing parties will agree upon a monetary value awarded to a one point winning hand. Subsequently, for each additional point scored, this value is accordingly doubled. There is a typical maximum scoring limit of five points, though this has to be agreed-upon collectively by the playing parties. This point limit is simply known as limit, and will be used to describe the points awarded by certain tile-combinations from now on. In other words, if we describe a certain tile combination to award the limit, it automatically scores the maximum number of points, as agreed upon before the game.

'China has been a source of fascination for the West since the early days of the China trade, and the country's importance to the world grows with every passing day. China's renowned art objects and traditional manufactured products have long been sought by collectors--from porcelains and finely detailed paintings, silk fabrics, and furniture to the lacquered or ebony-and-bone chopsticks that are a distant relation to the ones you'll find in most Chinese restaurants. Things Chinese is the next book in the newly redesigned series that includes Things Japanese and Things Thai. Like them, it presents sixty distinctive items that are typical of Chinese culture and together present a very special window onto the people, the history, and the society of the world's largest nation. Each object is a collectible in its own right, and each has a different story to tell. The objects are grouped into six areas: household items, arts & crafts, personal possessions, eating & drinking, games & entertainment, and religious items. They include some items that will be familiar and many that are unfamiliar--some new and some old--from painted cabinets and calligraphic scrolls to painted opera masks and moon cake moulds, and from Golden Lotus shoes once used to encase tightly-bound fee to snuff bottles, Mao memorabilia, mahjong sets and even kites. Renowned architectural historian Ronald Knapp describes the history, cultural significance, and customs relating to each item, while award-winning photographer Michael Freeman has taken superb photographs to illustrate them. Together, text and photographs offer a unique look at the material culture of the Chinese and the aesthetics that inform it'--
