NingPo is a classic tile-matching solitaire game! Don't be fooled into thinking that this is "just another clone", because it's far more than that! NingPo Mah Jong provides outstanding art work, great music, and awesome game play while still retaining the elements that make this game so great - simplicity and fun.

Damejong is Mah Jongg (Ma Jiang).

This is Shang Hai!

The original game to all these clones is called Shanghai, published by Activision. It was the brainchild of Brodie Lockard.

It first appeared on the Commodore Amiga--otherwise known as the best computer there ever was, back when everybody else was doing 1 bit sound and 2-bit graphics. Imagine PCs with 4 colors. Apple II had 6. Look up Mobygames.

And this is a real game of Mahjong. It's a lot more complicated. Take a few evenings to learn the rules, but works great as an online game for 4. Any big game publishers want to get it right for real Mahjong lovers?

Whoops, Sorry, In my haste I forgot the game first came out on the Mac in 1-bit graphics. Well I did first see it on the Amiga in glorious 6-bit.

Note this is PPC ONLY, thus not worth a download to evaluate if you are running on an Intel machine.

I am sick of tile match clones, even those with good graphics.
If someone cannot make a Mahjong game, they should not advertise their product as such.

Note: This is NOT a mahjong game, it is mahjong SOLITAIRE.
Can't any of these programmers make a REAL 4 player mahjong game, the one which REAL Chinese and Japanese people play???

The REAL 4 player mahjong which Asian people play is similar to the card games GIN, CANASTA, and POKER. It has nothing to do with tile matching.

The tile matching solitaire game was invented by an AMERICAN programmer called BROKIE LEONARD in the 1980's, NOT REAL MAHJONG.

Time and Time, nearly every single Westerner I meet has been brainwashed into thinking mahjong is that tile matching game when it is NOT!!!!!!

Programmers, stop giving this game the wrong name, what ignorance!!!

best mahjong game ever! i've tried lots of other ones but this one blows them all away. the only feature from another mahjong game which i'd like to see is the 'fortune cookie' when you solve a puzzle without cheating/shuffling. but other than that, it's amazing! and the music is awesome. i'm buying the full version asap.
