My mah-jongg question or comment is:
I would like to post a comment, if I may, on the Mah Jongg sets for the visually impaired available in the market today. As you may recall, my firm offered these sets for the first time many years ago long before any other vendor since I have been visually impaired since birth and saw the need for sets that could help those of us who have a problem with the regular tiles.
Over the years, we offered different types of sets to help those with visual problems but found some of them too heavy or too cumbersome to carry. Some of our customers were elderly with back problems and some of the sets made it difficult for them to carry their game.
Our current set has been overwhelmingly welcomed by customers nationwide because not only are the tiles larger and easier to see but they are thinner and lighter. We use regular racks with the metal ends and a soft burgundy case so the whole set weighs less than 9 lbs.
You can view our set at www.funwithmahjongg.com For questions, please call us directly at (561)308-1278 We have customers with macular degeneration and other low vision problems who have successfully used our set. Naturally, we cannot guarantee that everyone who is visually impaired will be able to use the set since the level of impairment varies from person to person.
Thanks, Tom and... Have a Great Mah Jongg Day!!
