The critically acclaimed puzzle board game freely inspired by the Mahjong Solitaire: play solo or against players from all over the world with Online and Local Pass & Play modes!

In Dragon Castle: The Board Game, you will pick tiles from the central castle to create sets of tiles of the same kind in your own realm and score points. You will also build Shrines, trigger powerful Spirit abilities, and appease the tastes of the Dragons to score bonus points! May the best builder win!

During your turn, you can take a pair of identical tiles from the central "castle" and place them on your own realm board to build your own castle. Alternatively, you may sacrifice these tiles to acquire shrines or extra points.

Every time you create a set of tiles of the same kind, you flip them face down to score points and build shrines on top for even more points, if at the cost of limiting your building options! You may also take advantage of the spirits and their game-changing powers to manipulate the board... Finally, don't forget to check the active Dragon, and to follow the building requirements to score bonus points.

Play against up to 3 adjustable AIs to sharpen your castle building skills!

Play against builders from all over the world online and get to the top of the worldwide leader-board!

• The mystical universe of the board game, fleshed out and digitally enhanced
• A tactical gameplay with variable boards, objectives, and powers, allowing for countless different playstyles and strategies!

Fun new twist on an old boring game

Truthfully I’ve never been a fan of Mahjong but these developers have found a way to make it feel new and competitive beyond collecting tiles. I have only 1 complaint about the game. There is no way to randomize the Dragon or Spirit you have during a game. If there was I would definitely give this 5 stars. I feel it’s an easy yet simple game mechanic that should be on every kind of game that allows for selection.

To keep this review simple:
Great, unique, 2-4 player tile collecting/matching/scoring game with simple rules but a lot of strategy and complexity, and a huge replayability value thanks to a 100 possible combinations of spirits and dragons that each offer an additional action or a way to score points for the given game, thus opening the path to dozens of different strategies.

The app itself is very well designed both in terms of esthetics and functionality - beautiful asian themed artwork and music, intuitive user interface and straightforward controls. Offers 3 difficulties of AI (that plays very well) and both offline and online multiplayer. Also I’m very much addicted to the animation of picking up/dropping tiles and the satisfying clicking sound they make!! Very much like real mahjong tiles! Completely makes you forget that you’re not actually touching those tiles yourself.

The only complaint I have is that you can’t choose your color in a single player game, which isn’t a big deal, but the different player boards are just so beautiful.

Also, I think the option to design your own board layouts like in the physical version would be great!

Love the game but the app has a big issue

I am a fan of the game and overall I love the interface design. BUT, I’ve found that the clock recording the time set for a game is totally useless.
If I create a game for 30 min. and someone joins, you would think that the app would give each player 30 minutes of time to play. This helps avoid a player getting stuck in a game with someone who never finishes their turn. Ultimately if they don’t play, their time runs out and they lose.

BUT that isn’t what happens. The clock for the other player only runs as long as I am still in the game. If I leave to play a game with someone else the in game timer stops. Completely defeats the value of it.

So I have 4 inactive games open right now and even though I’ve taken my turns, my opponents have zero reason to worry about coming back to play because they will never run out of time. This is very discouraging.

Games like this need to be able discourage game abandonment. Please fix this
