Mahjong Rubiks Cube & Ice Tray
Singaporeans love mahjong — from the thrill of the game, to being able to socialise with friends. Plus, the aesthetics of the tiles and playing table are simply immaculate too.
If you’re a fan of the chio motifs found on the tiles, the brand Chop Suey Club now has mahjong-themed products that feature these details. The items include an ice tray, a Rubiks Cube, and even mahjong socks you can pair with these mahjong Nike AF1s.
Imagine being able to perk up your drinks with a dash of mahjong mystique. These moulds let you make icy replicas of the tiles in the game. The moulds come in pink, purple, and red, each tray allowing you to make 21 specially shaped ice cubes.
The moulds create indentations in the ice that look almost identical to the designs used in the game. They’re great for making cubes to accompany beverages while playing your multiple rounds at home.
The silicone-based material makes them suitable to be used in creating mahjong tile-shaped chocolate as well.
The ice trays are priced at $12 USD (~$S16.12) each.
This Rubiks Cube is probably the one you’ll be okay with leaving unsolved. With different motifs such as the bamboo and dragon tiles, the device combines the Hungarian puzzle with our locally-loved pastime.
On days when your friends are all too busy for a night of mahjong, you can settle for a solo game that will leave your fingers busy till the next proper session. Even if you’re really bad at solving a Rubiks, you can simply use this one as a display piece in your room to show everyone just how much you love the game.
The Rubiks Cube is priced at $12 USD (~$S16.12) each.
If you believe in lucky socks, these mahjong-themed editions could be the solution to all the games you’ve been losing. In a shade of fire-red, the socks have the joker tile, wind tile, and others printed all over.
On the bottoms of the socks, the Chinese symbol for “yíng” is printed on each side. The word translated means to “beat” or “win” — just what you need for every future game with your kakis.
The socks are priced at $12 a pair.
