The oracle and the game!

Do you have questions about your love life, career, health or future happiness? Well, now you can find the answers using this classic Chinese oracle from the Chou dynasty. Based on the best-selling Book-in-a-Box kits, Mah Jongg Book shows how to use the deck to give accurate answers to all your daily dilemmas and there are twelve sample readings to help you get started. Plus, there are instructions for playing the game of Mah Jongg. The original oracle from which the game evolved may be thousands of years old, but the advice it gives is as relevant today as it was to the Chinese seekers of wisdom all those years ago.
