As shown by research scientists to Hong Kong, about 25 people complained about the game-induced seizures

Despite the fact that the game is an integral part of socio-cultural life of China's rapid movement of the stones could significantly damage the health of people who are prone to epi-attacks.

Epileptic seizures can be caused by many factors and playing board games, where there is rapid movement of the shapes or stones, can also become a factor.

However, studies show, the game itself could not be a trigger for an attack, but only a contributing factor. Besides the game itself, all the victims had prior sleep disturbance or heavy gaming stress. A loud knock on the board of stones and striking design also increase the probability of an attack.
