Mahjong Solitaire

Flash Mahjong SolitaireA while back I posted a DHTML version of the classic meditative strategy game, Mahjong Solitaire, as it was the nicest version of the game I was able to find. Until now. Enter bijvoorbeeld multimedia's rendition of the game, and it's done in Flash.

From Amsterdam, this version of Mahjong Solitaire is clearly one of the best I have seen for one very significant reason: the symbols are large and very easy to differentiate from one another. As much as I love the cultural beauty of authentic Mahjongg tiles, they can drive my eyes to fatigue from just telling them apart. In addition to the large contrasting symbols and requisite single player mode, this game offers a two player game: One person plays through the game, the other then tries to better the first player's score.

If you are new to this game, the object is to remove all 144 tiles from the play field. To remove tiles, you must match up like tiles, and they both must be free to slide off the pile to the right or to the left. Generally, there are four (4) of each tile, except for two special tile types: flowers and seasons. Both of these special types have four (4) tiles each that match with each other, yet the face of each tile is different. In this game the flowers are gold in color, and the seasons are blue with red decoration.

A classic that has been remade into a more usable, and more accessible, game.

Update: The game is no longer available online to play.

Regarding your update...the game is working just fine for me. Probably a little too well, since I can't seem to get any work done.

lol. =)

Thanks, Rob. I guess the problem is on my end, as I am using a Mac. The game will not work in Firefox, Safari, or IE. It's too bad, because I really liked this version, too.

I posted this game when I was still using my desktop PC.

It also doesn't work with Mozilla, which I suppose isn't surprising. I am also using a Mac.

I cannot get to this Mah jong game any more and I really miss it. Is there a secret to getting there that I do not know? I am using Mozilla/Firefox (not on a MAC though) but I was getting it before. thanks

I also cannot get the game to load. Using IE 6.0
