The Felicity memorial mahjong special hand

Each Monday lunchtime at work, a group of us get together to play mahjong. Mahjong Mondays we call them.

Sadly, however, one of our colleagues, Felicity, is leaving shortly so we invited her to leave us with a Felicity memorial special hand.

This is what she came up with, we could call it “Wild winds”:

  • One each of the three dragons (red, green and white)
  • A pair of each of the winds (east, south, west and north)
  • A pung (or kong) of terminals of any suit

I wonder if there is already a special hand like that out there.

A couple of months ago I came across a set of the most beautiful mahjong icons created by web developer and icon designer Martin Persson.

I got in touch with Martin because the set was almost complete: it had everything for the Western game apart from flowers and seasons. After a short conversation by email I sent Martin scans of the flowers and seasons from my Gibson’s mahjong set and a few weeks later he made his new icons available for download from his website.

Martin Persson’s set consists of 37 mahjong icons in both 64px and 128px sizes, which are free for both personal and commercial use, provided that you link to his site.
