Mahjong (alternatively spelled as Mah-Jong on the game's cartridge and Mah Jong for its Hong Kong release) is a Famicom game in the Yakuman/Mahjong series, based on the popular Chinese tile-game Mahjong.


The aim of the game is to form a winning hand (yaku) and gather the most number of points.


Box (Hong Kong)

You can enjoy the thrill
and excitement of
playing Mahjong yourself
against the computer.

There are 3 levels - Beginner, Inter-
mediate and Expert - which are selected according to the skill of the player. It's
great for practicing! Especially, in the higher skill lever, there are time limits
(approximately 12 seconds) which enables you to enjoy speedy game plays.
Also, it automatically calculates and displays the score on the screen.
