Errata

Mah Jongg may not be quite as old as Dave let on.  There are myths that suggest the game was invented by Confucius in 500 BC, BUT tile sets similar to Mah Jongg have only been found as far back as 800 AD. The modern game we know and love was created sometime around 1850 and brought to the United States in the 1920s.

Listener Eric found a HUGE omission on our part:

"Besides Jambo and Goa, Rudiger Dorn also designed The Traders of Genoa, my favorite game of his and his second highest ranked game at The Geek."
