Mah Jong Cards

version 3.0 (Canton 3d) by Gareth J M Saunders
Why Mah Jong Cards? While traditional Mah Jong tile sets are heavy, and therefore not the most portable, you can quite conceivably take a pack of Mah Jong cards anywhere. The Mah Jong Set This file contains enough cards to produce a full 144 card set, including seasons, flowers and an extra 8 jokers. Font Used I have used, in this version, the commercial Canton and Canton 3D true-type fonts from www.partae.com (US$49) which produces a clean, simple and universal design. Colour Scheme I have adopted the following colour scheme for cards, which keeps with the traditional association between the suits and dragons (with thanks to Tom Sloper): Bamboo Dots Characters Winds Dragons Seasons Jokers — — — — — — — Green Black Red Blue As Dragon Black Brown These cards are copyright © 20012003 Potting Shed Designs / Gareth J.

Printing Use thick card. If the card image shows through the card you can print a disruptive backing image on the reverse side of the card before cutting. An appropriate image is available in PDF format on my website. To produce a full set of 144 cards please print pages 2-5 (Bamboos; Dots; Characters; Winds, Dragons and Jokers) four times each. You need only print the Seasons and Flowers once.
