Mahjong is a game that entails four players. At the start of the game, a player is the dealer. The meaning of the dealer lies in that he can have 14 tiles, while other players can only have 13 ones.The game is over after each of the four players has acted as the dealer in turn for four times.
The purpose of Mahjong is to gather together four sequences or triplets with 14 tiles, plus a couple of pairs (few special points are not composed of sequences and triplets, see the introduction about points below). Each sequence or triplet is composed of three tiles, while the pair of two same tiles. The so-called sequence consists of three tiles of consecutive numbers, such as Character Three, Character Four and Character Five, while the so-called triplet of three same tiles. The one that first gathers together four sequences or triplets and a couple of pairs (or special points) wins. The other three must give the winner money in different amounts according to points.
At the start of the game, the dealer discards the most useless tile, while all other three players are entitled to have the discarded tile. The dealer’s opponent on the right (player on the right) has the right to chow, pong or kong that tile, while the other two players can only pong or kong it. To chow means that if you want to gather together a sequence, and you already have two tiles of the sequence, for example, you already have Bamboo Four and Bamboo Five, while your opponent on the left happens to discard Bamboo Three, you can chow it to gather together a sequence. To pong means that if you want to gather together a triplet, and you already have two tiles of the triplet, for instance, you have had two tiles of Dot Nine, you can pong if anyone discards Dot Nine. To kong means that if you already have a closed triplet, say, you already have three tiles of Character Five, you can kong if anyone discards Character Five. If the players want to chow, pong and kong at the same time, the one wanting to pong or kong has the priority. Anyone that chows, pongs or kongs must expose the tiles chowed, ponged or konged without making any change. If one discards a tile, but nobody chows, pongs or kongs, the opponent on the right can withdraw a tile from the stack, which is called drawing. There is another situation of kong:if you have an triplet(exposed or closed), say, you already have three tiles of Dragon Green but you draw a tile of Dragon Green when drawing, you can also kong. The player konging tiles must withdraw a tile from the end of the stack. Of course, no matter whether you chow, pong or draw, you must discard a tile after the action to maintain 13 tiles.
After the tiles in your hand are all useful and you only need the fourteenth one to win, and now you are in the stage of ready hand. For example, you have gathered together three sequences, a triplet and a tile of East Wind, you can declare a win if anyone discards or you self-draw a tile of East Wind (you have to gather together special tiles in case of winning special points). In many cases, you can wait for more than one necessary tile, which will grant you more opportunities to win. For example, if you have gathered together two sequences, a triplet and a couple of pairs, and there remains an incomplete sequence of Character Two and Character Three, you may wait for Character One or Character Four to win.

Authentic multiplayer mahjong gameplay
This app is the only one I’ve found with which you can play regular mahjong as opposed to mahjong solitaire. Players who are unfamiliar with the gameplay may want to look up the rules beforehand but there are also helpful instructions in the app. It’s also very helpful that you can choose to have the number tiles appear in Arabic numerals instead of their Chinese characters.

Perfect... except game is fixed to make you win
My only complaint is that the game is too easy and the algorithm seems (definitely is) fixed to make you win way more than chance would have it. When playing mahjong with my friends I win 20-30% of the time, but this game has me winning 60-70% of the time. After the initial feeling of “dang, I’m awesome!” wears off, it makes it feel like a waste of time to play this game because you’re being given tiles.
I love that you can increase the speed of this game so there is basically a 1 or 2 second interval between each time you play a tile. This great feature makes playing other online versions of mahjong feel unbearably slow.
Want to give it 3.5 :-)
Good game play. Nice option to choose minimum points to wu, rewarding strategies like concealed hand. Scoring system a bit unorthodox but fully explained in the Help option (tap the “?”). Desired improvements: 1) Ability to save a game. Too often you won’t have time to play 16 hands (more if there are no win hands). Your progress is lost when you leave the program. 2) Offer an option of playing the rounds of just E and W winds to a final score, as is common in Japanese Riichi games. 3) Need an option to disable flowers/seasons. They inject pure luck without any connection to a strategy.
