Mahjong

Mahjong is a traditional Chinese tile game that requires the players to seek certain combinations of tiles in order to win. Modern interpretations of this title have strayed pretty far away from the original concept keeping only the aesthetics. Most electronic versions of Majong online resemble a memory puzzle where you need to locate identical symbols or drawings. In this case there is no need to remember where the corresponding tiles are located: the whole layout is visible to you at all times. All you need to do is find the matching tiles, select them and take them off the board.

While every Mahjong game feels relatively easy in the beginning, things quickly become more problematic when you run out of tiles to match. Sometimes you simply can’t find them in the layout, other times they are buried somewhere underneath and there is no getting to them before clearing the ones at the top first. You can use hints if they are available or simply spend more time looking for pairs.

Fans of Mahjong play it whenever they have some time to spare. Despite its simplicity the game is extremely addicting because of how satisfying the process is. Beautiful hand-drawn tile designs, relaxing music and pleasant sound effects make things even more appealing even to people who usually don’t enjoy other types of video games.

If you have never played anything like this before, do yourself a favor and give Mahjong a try. You will be surprised by how fun and entertaining it is to slowly clear the tiles from the board one by one, eventually removing the final pair and finishing the layout. Considering the fact that you don’t need to pay anything (let alone buy an actual set of tiles) thanks to the advantages of modern technology, this is one of the best ways to kill some time when you are bored or tired of mundane tasks. Start the game and enjoy!
