Ting and Hu / Mahjong design

Ting and Hu
Ting and Hu

In China, Mahjong is very popular among the elderly. Chi, Pen, Gang, Ting and Hu are five standard states in Mahjong game. In first three states, players just need to make the corresponding action to convey his meanings to the other three participants. But, the last two states often need player himself to show his meanings to others by words, which is impossible for player who is deaf and dumb. So, this design can assist him or her to express Ting and Hu states. In this way, people who are deaf and dumb can also play Mahjong game with normal people fluently.
