Mahjong Variations and Rules
Mahjong is a popular game that began in China, is normally played by four players (with around three-player varieties found in Japan and Korea). The game and its provincial variants are broadly played all around South Eastern and Eastern Asia, but it has little following and curiosity in Western nations. Like the Western card game known as Rummy, Mahjong is a popular game of calculation, strategy and skill and includes a level of chance. Mah-Jongg solitaire is quite similar to original version, but this is played by using tiles instead of cards. It is also called as Solitaire Mah-Jongg, computerized or electronic Mah Jong, Shanghai Solitaire, and sometimes mistakenly it is also known as Mahjong.
In Shanghai Solitaire variation the objective is to match two identical tiles, or in some cases tiles of the same suit and remove them from the board. They can only be paired if they are not covered and have one left or right side free. Each game has unique design, background music and feel in general. Choose your favourite version, compete with other players, or just race against your self in besting your previous high score.
Another online variation is the Original (Traditional) Chinese and Japanese Mahjong, along with couple of games with simplified rules, where the objective is to get rid of all tiles in your hand before everyone else does, by creating combinations of identical ones, or tiles from the same suit arranged in numerical order. You can find the rules in almost every game you choose in this category, along with complete tutorials.
The third category goes by the name of Mahjong Connect or Connect Two. The object is to connect two identical tiles that are not more than three uninterrupted straight lines away from each other. Players and developers seems to favour this version right after Shanghai, maybe because of the simple one layer tiles, or because of the easy rules, we don't know. Anyhow, you will certainly relax and enjoy this collection.
In Unique Tile Games category each game has it's own unique set of rules, like creating combination of three or more identical tiles and 3D Mahjong versions. In some games the matching rules are to pair two identical tiles that are not covered and have one horizontal and one vertical side free. This is where developers are free to invent new rules, twist old ones, or combine multiple rules in one game.
