Hey Guys,

Is anyone aware of a real Mah Jongg game for OS X? That is, not one of the tile matching games that for some reason have become known as Mah Jongg, but the real game, as adapted from the Chinese and played by little old ladies everywhere.

I've done quite a bit of searching for this with no success. If anyone can point me in the right direction, I'd be grateful.

Ken,

I bought and downloaded Mahjong Solitarus - it was like $20, and the best one I've found anywhere and I've downloaded 2 or 3 free ones...

I think you can try it first. You'll like it, and worth $20 - over 100 settings.

Here, I found it, shareware:

Hope it's what you're looking for...

Noel,

Thanks, that looks like a great version of the solitaire game, but that's the tile-matching 'mah jongg' to which I referred, not the real game.

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mahjong for some info about the real deal. Here's one piece of software I found: http://www.mahjongg.com/ but it's only for Windows. I'll run it with Parallels if I must, but I'd rather have an OS X native version if at all possible.

Oh yes I'd like to know this too. As I own a real Mah Jongg set. But have searched high and low for an OS X version of this. I found many of the tile matching versions but none of the 4 player 4 walled versions that they play in China. But I'll keep looking though.

[edit]Have a look on this page. Is that something like what you are after?

Yes, those are the sorts of options I was seeking. None of them look very polished, but they're definitely better than nothing.

The Chinese wall game has been adapted and is played, with different rules, in the US and elsewhere. In the US, it requires the use of a card (updated annually) showing that year's possible hands. It's a great game, combining strategic elements of chess, go, and bridge.
