This is the famous Zhongyuan Mahjong (Solitaire)! This game demands huge observation, great patience and challenging spirit! This is also an extremely relaxing game that tens of thousands of people are enjoying it every day!

***Game goal
Clear the board by removing two identical tiles on a same line each time as quickly as possible.

***Remove tiles
Two identical tiles on a same line are removable. Note that you can move tiles but only once.

****Game features
The game proceeds with no hints, no help and no re-try. There is no any assistance to you but your hard observation. You can press the “End” button to see remaining removable pairs, but the game will end at the same time.

**** Compared with other games
Many people know similar games like Dikaku, Sichuan Mahjong or Shanghai Mahjong. But in fact, you will enjoy more in playing this game. The reason is that those games are merely static games, and you just play them passively. However, zMahjong is a dynamic game in that it keeps changing along with the whole game period. For example, when your game enters the mid-stage, you will probably find that it is becoming increasingly difficult and it seems as if there won't be any removable pairs. But often you will soon realize that once you can find out one pair, the whole game can totally change. Also, since the game allows tiles to be moved before one pair of tiles is removed, the game requires very much challenging spirit to find out the possible removable pairs. Once you can find out one pair and remove it, you will anticipate that new removable pairs can be created. Thus, whether you can finally complete the game or not, you have already been enjoying every step you have played. So that you will never be disappointed with yourself. You will start a new whether you have finished a game or not. This is zMahjong!

Amazingly fun game

Wish example game were slower. Game is great fun & very addictive. However it sometimes gets stuck, making it necessary to end game & return to new game (frustrating when winning). Also keeps inaccurate count of games won & does not always show correct number of moves remaining, as I study moves left to learn from my mistakes. Hopefully you will correct your mistakes too as this is an awesome game.

The best mahjong game, but not perfect

This is the only mahjong that I have found that allows you to move the tiles to make matches. The rules have been changed enough to make this variation work and takes it beyond being simply a find the matches game. This is my goto time killer game because of its excellent playability. I also like its attitude: if you find all of the possible matches without the board being cleared, you are congratulated for finding all possible matches, not treated like a loser as in most games. Once you play this game, you will find yourself trying to move the tiles in traditional rule mahjong games, and will be disappointed when you cannot do so. I also like the responsiveness of the programmer if a problem is found. This is a person who really cares about the product.

EXCEPT: you can check to see how many matches are available at any point in the game (usually one, sometimes two), but you can only do that once per game. WHY can you only do it once per game? This seems like an arbitrary and capricious rule or limit. I believe this would be a five star game if it was not for that silly limit. And I would edit this to reflect that, if only that limitation was deleted.

Great entertainment and logic puzzle

Notification of "no moves left" doesn't always display but still one of the best Solitaire games available. Occasional end of game will not re-start.
