Mahjong Time announces Official Partnership with

  Mahjong Time is proud to announce that it has entered into an official partnership with is the largest European online shop specializing in the classical Chinese board game of Mahjong. It offers a large stock of high-quality, genuine Chinese Mahjong sets, amongst them exclusive rarities, as well as essential and helpful Mahjong accessories.

Mah jong Shop will promote Mahjong Time’s online tournaments and games whilst Mahjong Time will promote as the leading supplier of Mahjong equipment for offline games and tournaments. is located in Germany near Hannover and was established in 2003. Company owner Stephan Hilchenbach is an enthusiastic Mahjong player himself. When he started to learn this game back in 2002 it was extremely difficult to buy Mahjong sets in Germany. Just a few people knew the game in its classical form as a board game. Hilchenbach wanted to change this and to spread the joy and excitement he experienced with the beautiful game himself. It was a chicken-and-egg situation, and he decided to start by providing an easily accessible way to buy Mahjong sets first of all.

  It took him almost a year to find reliable suppliers in China and to establish business contact with selected Chinese manufacturers. Import procedures and customs regulations had to be clarified as well. Eventually his first small delivery of Mahjong sets arrived in Germany. This was in late 2003.

  Although initially only available in German language only, as the sales gradually increased, Hilchenbach decided to expand and provide an English language version of his online shop.

  Well-known by now as a reliable and competent source of Mahjong sets and accessories, Hilchenbach's company sponsored the 2nd Open European Mahjong Championship (OEMC) 2007 in Denmark as well as the 2nd German Mahjong Open 2007 in Hannover, both tournaments which Mahjong Time were the official online partner of.

  Hilchenbach: "This game represents an important part of Chinese culture and brings together so many people all over the world. We feel that it helps to further international understanding in a fun way"

  This is exactly what players experience at MahjongTime. Since he first learned about MahjongTime in 2005, Stephan Hilchenbach is a registered player and enjoys playing every day.
