It seems like nearly every sport and game has its own world championship; mahjong is no different. The World Championship of Mahjong was held this week Chongqing. China, according to ChinaSMACK.
What is interesting about the competition is that 80 of the 188 players were foreigners, many studying at Peking University and Tsinghua University in Beijing. While many foreigners enjoy the game, the world championships has historically been won by Chinese players. This year's winner has not been announced.
