The Mahjong tag refers to a genre of games that are based on the traditional Chinese tile-based game known as Mahjong.

Originating in ancient China, Mahjong is a game that involves skill, strategy, and a bit of luck. It is typically played with four players and uses a set of 136 or 144 tiles featuring various symbols and characters.

Mahjong games on platforms like Steam often recreate the gameplay mechanics of the traditional tile-based game in a digital format. Here are some key elements:

  • Tiles The core component of Mahjong games is its tiles. These tiles feature different suits, characters, numbers, or symbols. In each round, players take turns drawing and discarding these tiles to form specific combinations.
  • Combinations The objective in Mahjong is to collect sets or combinations of matching tiles. Typical combinations include "Pungs" (three identical tiles), "Kongs" (four identical tiles), and "Chows" (three consecutive numbered tiles from the same suit). The goal is to form certain sets while maintaining a hand that can win by either drawing from the wall or claiming another player's discarded tile.
  • Strategy Strategy plays an important role in Mahjong games. Players need to consider their own hand, track which discarded cards might be useful for their opponents, and make strategic decisions about when to call for certain combination types.
  • Variations There are many variations within the broad category of Mahjong games. These variations reflect regional rule differences found across different parts of Asia or variations resulting from evolving rules over time. Some popular variations include Cantonese Mahjong, Japanese Riichi Mahjong, and American Mahjong.

Examples of popular digital Mahjong games on Steam include:

  • Mahjong Soul This is an online multiplayer game that offers various rule sets and customization options. It features colorful anime-style visuals.
  • Mahjongg Legends: Sandlot Games This game provides a collection of different variations of Mahjong with different levels of difficulty. Players can choose from classic layouts or unique puzzles.
  • Shanghai: Dynasty A classic tile-matching game in the style of Shanghai solitaire where players must remove pairs of matching tiles until none remain on the layout.

In summary, the Mahjong tag represents video games that recreate the gameplay experience found in traditional tile-based Mahjong games. The goal is to collect specific sets or combinations using strategically chosen and discarded tiles. These games offer both single-player challenges and multiplayer options for those interested in experiencing this centuries-old Chinese pastime.
