All mahjong games are based on the classical Chinese board game with 144 gambling items or tiles manufactured out of rectangular wooden or ivory (if you are able to afford one of those) blocks showing various symbols and characters. The game itself is recognized under a lot of various names, depending in which part of the world, specially in Asia, its being enjoyed and handled. The most common versions of this interesting games, are available as scratchcard as well (I am not playing arround!), are – Kong Chow, Mah Deuck, etc. For us they can all sound the same, however they’re not – believe me!
The on-line or computer version of the game are able to be enjoyed in two various ways – solitaire or traditionally against a human or computer opponent. The classical variation is played with up to four members and the solitaire one, well…just you. In fact, it’s close to the card game solitaire, really.
There are fairly a few well-liked on the internet and computer variations available and the a lot of celebrated and thrilling versions are Super Mahjong Solitaire, Shockwave: Mahjong Solitaire, Real Arcade and Big Fish Games. Even those game titles I have just listed offer various gambling variants and choices. None of them are available for a play-money download or flash variation on the web though. This is rather surprising considering the fact, that there are already fairly a couple websites that offer mahjong tournaments and other competitions. For this goal you have the option to test or gamble those Mahjong games for play-money; no need to download them. Most of the mahjong games used for competitions is based on flash technology and run in the net browser.
