Mahjong is a game played with tiles among four players (or a different number depending on the rules). It is a slow-paced game that requires skill and calculation, as well as time to learn and understand the rules. Players seek to create a 'legal hand' using no more than 14 tiles in their pile.
Although Syria is a war-torn country at present, the good aspect is that the residents here are not giving up hope for the future. In 2011, Syria accepted gambling as a legal activity, but technically, it is still considered illegal. For those who can access the internet, some do gamble online.
