Mahjong Video Games

There are so many mahjong games. Anyone else play them? What's your favorite type? 2-player? 4-player? Solitaire? The games with the cute girls? RPGs with mahjong combat? Let's discuss! Lately I've been into the Family Mahjong (Nihon Bussan / Namco) series on Famicom, though I don't have the third one yet. These have nice clean visuals without being too primitive. Shanghai on Master System gets a regular spin as well.

Oh, if you don't know how to play mahjong here's a brief introductory video:

I played Solitaire Majhong a LOT as a kid on our old PC. I didn't even know there was a competitive game, so hearing of people talking about a game with multiple players that I associated as a matching game very much confused me XD

I also prefer the Solitaire version. Shanghai II: Dragon's Eye is a particular favorite, and I enjoy the Mahjongg game on NGPC, though I am terrible at it; it seems based much more on finding a very specific pattern to finish as opposed to developing a strategy.

I wonder how this is?

I'd ask if anyone's play it, but I assume the first rule of Mahjong Fight Club is to not talk about it. :\

Shanghai is a great way to familiarize yourself with the tiles, before diving into the more complicated games, I'd say.

Mahjong looks neat but I have yet to give any mahjong games a try. Mostly since the rules for it are a little intimidating. I've been meaning to sit down and try to read the rules but I haven't really had the chance to do that yet ha.

I have Shanghai triple threat on the Saturn but haven't played it. Maybe I'll dust it off today and give it a go.
