Best Mahjong Tables & Tile Sets To Buy In Singapore (2021 Guide)

From portable, foldable mahjong tables to professional, automatic ones, here’s a list of tables and tile sets to buy for mahjong addicts in Singapore.

Mahjong is undeniably gaining popularity among younger players in Singapore — just open your Instagram app on a weekend night for proof of that. 

One of the reasons why this traditional Chinese game is so commonly played nowadays is because 1) only four people are needed to play (which doesn’t breach Singapore’s Phase 2 (Heightened Alert) COVID-19 laws), and 2) it’s fun for the group for hours on end (only if you don’t lose money). 

After playing at a friends’ house for some time, you might consider getting a set of your own — it’ll cost you less in the long run (imagine all the Grab rides home on top of your losses) and you can just walk back to your room after an all-night session. 

Last updated on 19 August 2021. Mahjong tables and tiles listed here are subject to change without prior notice.

What is mahjong?

For the uninitiated, mahjong is a popular Chinese game commonly played by four players. The game is played with a set of 144 tiles, with each player receiving 13 tiles each. In order to win, you’ll have to form a complete hand with the fourteenth tile either self-drawn or discarded by other players. 

How to pick your mahjong table

The type of mahjong table and tiles you should get all depends on how often and professionally you play. People who play often (more than once a week) can invest in an automatic table but the price can cost around S$1,000 and up. Such tables are fancier, with most of them including automatic shuffling of tiles and USB chargers. 

People who play less often can opt for a regular table (yes, the one with the iconic green top) with its price hovering around S$60 to S$80. If you’re living in a BTO with limited space, you can go for a foldable or portable table, which we’ll talk about later.  

From one mahjong player to another, here are the top mahjong table and tile sets, across a budget range, for you to choose from for your next mahjong session.

Portable Mahjong Table Foldable, S$265

I have the exact same mahjong table, and let me tell you, it’s one of the greatest inventions for mahjong addicts ever. This nifty product folds up like a suitcase, making it super convenient to bring almost anywhere, from a friend’s house to staycations

I love it because not only does it come with chip drawers, but it is also made out of wood, which makes it super stable. When set up, it becomes a regular sized-table so you don’t have to deal with mini mahjong tiles which, let’s be honest, are not as enjoyable as the normal tiles you’d usually play with.
