There were many incorrect beliefs about the origins of the game, and perhaps some of these were used to help promote the game. This pamphlet is an amusing example of the types of rule books that accompanied games.

    A very nice beech wood set, with unusually detailed decoration - not often seen on these 'cheap' sets. What great dragons! and unusual arrangement of the bamboos.
