As Chinese New Year approaches, it’s time to… mahjong!

Mahjong is gaining popularity among the younger crowd in Singapore, as evident from lively Instagram posts on weekend nights.

The game’s appeal lies in the fact that it’s a group game involving four players (and sometimes, others might chime in on the side), and its ability to entertain a group for hours.

And if you find yourself regularly playing at a friend’s place, investing in your own set makes sense — it’s cost-effective in the long run, saving you from Grab rides home after late-night sessions.

Plus, you can simply walk back to your room after an all-night mahjong marathon.

So, here’s a list of tables and tile sets from foldable to professional automatic tables for you!

What is Mahjong?

If you have watched any period dramas, you will know that mahjong is like the OG of Chinese games.

For the uninitiated, mahjong is a four-player game where you take and swap tiles to create winning combos. You roll with a set of 144 tiles, and everyone gets dealt 13. To claim victory, you must piece together a full hand by snagging a fourteenth tile, drawing it yourself, or grabbing a cast-off from someone else.

It’s a social game that’s popular among Asian countries; it is fun, and it can be… fierce at times!

For a detailed breakdown of how to win at mahjong, this is something for you:

How to Choose a Mahjong Table?

The mahjong setup you should go for depends on how deep you dive into the game. If you’re on that mahjong grind more than once a week, consider splurging on an automatic table because… it saves you SO MUCH TIME.

These bad boys are fancy, with auto-shuffling tiles, cup holders and sometimes USB chargers.

Now, if you’re more of a casual mahjong warrior, a classic green table will do the trick, and it won’t burn a hole in your pocket, ranging from $60 to $80. And for those with space struggles, we’ve got the foldable or portable options – but more on that later.

Types of Mahjong Tables in Singapore

This is the most common type of mahjong table you can find in Singapore.

The good thing about it is it’s affordable (~$60 – $80), it has chip drawers (I’d say this is a must!), with some having cup holders and, sometimes, ashtrays.

This is a portable mahjong table and this means that it’s a great option for those who like bringing mahjong to staycations or, sometimes, just simply constrained by space.

It comes with 4 drawers to put your chips/money while playing mahjong games.

Convenience comes with a price. It’s currently sold at $359 – but hey, if you are going to use it so often, why not?

Mini Folding Mahjong Table (comes with Mahjong Set)

I’m not kidding when I said there are mini mahjong tables that you can bring around as you travel.

Think about it: if you were to bring cards when travelling from one place to another, having a mini mahjong set can spice up the whole journey and make it less boring.

The only downside is that you will need to be travelling with a group of four minimally so that everyone can participate.

It’s currently sold at $8.57 at the time of writing, so get it quickly!

Mahjong Nylon Table Mat

Not exactly a table, but… you get it.

This mahjong mat can be your next go-to if you’re not a mahjong newbie because… you don’t need a table to win; all you need is the mat’s smooth nylon surface.

It’s also the budget-friendly secret weapon to give your existing mahjong table a facelift, making it look brand new without breaking the bank, at ~$9.

Automatic Mahjong Table


I’d like to say this is the ultimate goal of most if not all, mahjong addicts.

As someone who plays sporadically, I can’t say this is my goal because of the various constraints at home, but if you were to ask my fellow colleagues at Seedly and SingSaver, who play mahjong almost every weekend, they get excited over automatic mahjong tables.

What’s so great about automatic tables?

You don’t have to shuffle and rearrange the tiles, you don’t have to throw the dice, you don’t have to think about the wind indicator because the table does it all for you.

Also, as bulky as it seems, you can fold it down. It also comes with a USB charger so you can charge your phone!

But, of course, great things come with a price. At a hefty price tag of $1,388 (U.P. $1,588), you will be able to get your hands on the SGAUTOMAHJONG.SG’s Ultra Slim automatic table.
