    My grandmother had a very nice carved (ivory I assume) :( Mahjong(g) set and we used to play it when we were young. I don't remember what happened to that set after her passing.

        I have joined a Mahjong event that meets for three hours every other week. I am learning Chinese Mahjong which has no jokers. I have not been able to find out how to deal the tiles at the beginning of the game. I don't know what the dead wall is or how it's formed. I've only played one time. Can anyone advise me on this?
