American Mahjong is a form of mahjong that uses joker tiles, the Charleston, plus melds of five or more tiles, and eschews the Chow and the notion of a standard hand. It is standardized by the National Mah Jongg League and the American Mah-Jongg Association.

America Mahjong is a game that has had an American spin put on it. Mahjong comes from China and was brought to America in the early 1900's. Developed in 1930, American Mahjong is based on the Eastern variant. It is most popular with Jewish women and in 1937, an All American Mahjong team was formed.

Its a form of the Chinese derived Mah-Jong. The game itself still consists of all the tiles for matching to complete the game it simply changes the symbols from chinese to American numerals and symbols. The concept of the game is still the same no matter what version you play though.
