Video games hit the market 41 years ago, but Chinese Mahjong already existed. It is a game that enjoyed by Taiwan and Hongkong people without ever reporting brain damages, why? Because Chinese mahjong is not a violent game but a life skill training game. The game is played with a set of 144 tiles based on Chinese characters and symbols. The task is a simple matching mission but displayed in a fun, interesting and engaging way.
More than 1.25 billion people play games globally. More than half of them, 160 million people are from the United States and a significant number from among these complain of game-related brain problems. Here are reasons why you should play Chinese Mahjong game more often.
Mahjong will save your brain from depression
A research done by Richard M. Ryan of the University of Rochester and the American physiological association reveals that people who play video games gain self-confidence, positive energy, increased curiosity and excitement during play. The research explains that when depressed people play games for the enjoyment and learning and not to run away from their challenges, then they come out with new strength at confronting real life problems. This is because, the way they try out new game levels, is the same way they will try to solve life challenges hence dealing with depression.
You will learn to solve life challenging problems.
Taiwan Mahjong is basically about solving problems. You will start with a simpler level then ascend to other much difficult levels. This is the same simple mathematics life offers. If last month you managed to buy that couch you have always admired, the next month you will admire a lovely shoe and start saving for it. It teaches your brain the discipline to learn to stick to the solving side.
This free game teaches decisiveness
With this game, you always have to make choices, and much faster. These choices determine your win or lose. This is exactly the same with life. For example, if you are surrounded by many pending bills and you only have money to pay for two of your bills, of course, you will need to choose the most vital service you need. If you had to choose between paying for water and electricity, you would choose water; but that’s not always the case. Some people are not good at making decisions and always end up in trouble. If you play Chinese Mahjong for a while, your brain trains to make quick decisions.
