Does anyone know where I can find a modern Vietnamese mahjong set (176 tiles)? I've looked high and low online but can't seem to find anything. Interested in playing with more restricted 'joker' rules. Also like the larger tiles...

Thanks!

Like this one?


This is a Vietnamese set, at least it was marketed as one and has 160 tiles.

If you're desperate, I can make you a set of the vietnamese tiles.

I have a pantograph machine and templates for the vietnamese tiles. To make them requires 16 blank tiles that match your current set, and you'll have to hand paint them yourself. When I get back from Paris (I'll be refereeing the World Riichi Championships), I'll take a picture of mine to show you what they look like. They really are indistinguishable from factory cut... considering the same style machine is used to make them.

Hi Gg - Yes, similar to this one. This looks like a classic Vietnamese set (144 + 8 special flowers + 8 special jokers = 160 tiles). I'm specifically looking for a modern Vietnamese set (144 + 8 special flowers + [8 special jokers x 3] = 176 tiles). Where did you find the one in the picture?

Thanks, SDMiller! I would love to see what they look like. Btw, I had to look up what a pantograph machine was... very cool.

This set was obtained from Yellow Mountain Imports about four years ago. I haven't seen it offered anywhere since, and it is for sale or trade.
