    Quoting the organisers:

    >Sometime in the late eighteenth to early nineteenth century,
    >a game called ma jiang was developed.

    Unless a new, sensational find of which we would be totally unaware is
    presented at the exhibition (whose catalogue I hope to get sometime),
    this must be a careless mistake of the editor(s) (perhaps of the
    website editors).

    Even if we have recently come to the conclusion that 'majiang' was
    certainly known in the early 1920's as a synonym of 'maqiao', there is
    no evidence of its being known before 1900.
