MahJong Game Mechanics


MahJong is a matching game with domino-like tiles similar -- I believe as a progressive step-up -- from the Memory Match game mechanics. The main difference between the two games being that in MahJong you can see all the faces on the tiles at once in our version. “It has heavy relation to Feng Shui and contains many special meanings in the tiles themselves.” We are able to trace its history to the last imperial dynasty of China -- the Qing dynasty. Originally, it was commonly played by four players (with some three-player variations found in South Korea and Japan). “It quickly became popular in Shanghai and Beijing, and eventually among American expatriates. Entrepreneurs and American tourists brought the game to the United States, where it spread like wildfire in the early 1920s.” Our focus will be on developing a single player version with some additional features.
