Here is how to play the most traditional tile-matching game first popularized by Activision's "Shanghai" and also by other computer games like "Taipei" and "Kyodai" and often erroneously called "mah-jongg." Perhaps it is best called "mah-jongg solitaire." Some folks in China call it...

"THE TURTLE"

So we'll call it "The Turtle," or "Shanghai," interchangeably.


SHISENSHO
CATCHING THE TORTOISE
PAIHINMIN

There's a site (in German) that shows how to play dominos with mah-jongg tiles at http://www.ebecker.de/djongg/home.htm.

If you know of other solitaire and 2P games that can be played with mah-jongg tiles, please contact me.
