This year, you can kick it up a notch with these unique mahjong sets with tiles in quirky designs – who knows, they might just be your lucky charm.

While Sephora may be our go-to for anything makeup-related, this rare 3CE Mahjong set ($160.20) we found on Carousell is something you can’t get there. With shocking pink casino chips shaped like lipsticks and bottles of nail polish, this set will definitely be a conversation starter. The sleek pink case it comes in looks like a professional makeup carrier as well.

Mahjong isn’t just a game for ah mahs and ah gongs – many of us became avid mahjong enthusiasts in our teens, because such is the lure of this thrilling game. The ka-ching that comes with it doesn’t hurt either.
