in being able to support six or even eight players,
though this is not frequently done as getting that many people to play
is not easy.
Note that as with all mahjong variants, this game is separate and unrelated
to the tile-matching game that was invented much later on.
This article is written with the expectation
that readers are at least passively familiar
with either Japanese or Hong Kong Old Style mahjong,[fn:hkos]
the latter of which Ùzje mahjong derives from.
[fn:hkos] In Ùzje itself, this is a historical variant and named "Fortress Mahjong".
* Tiles
There are up to 176 tiles in play for Ùzje mahjong.
This is far more than the standard form that many other variants use,
and include one of the largest innovations of the game in Ùzje.
The table below is a breakdown for the most common configuration of the game:
| Type | Suit | # Distinct | Count | Total |
|--------+-----------+------------+-------+-------|
| Number | Tongs | 2 | 4 | 8 |
| | Soks | 16 | 4 | 64 |
| | Mans | 16 | 4 | 64 |
|--------+-----------+------------+-------+-------|
| Hybrid | Zero | 1 | 4 | 4 |

| Honour | Winds | 4 | 4 | 16 |
