Mahjong-2D (Shisen-Sho)

This is a 2-dimensional version of my most favorite game at the time of writing this post - Solitaire Mahjong!

I first got addicted to this game on zylom.com, where it is similar to the version that comes pre-loaded with Windows Vista. In that version of Mahjong, the tiles are arranged in a pyramid-like multi-level structure. However, I found this completely different PDA version of Mahjong, that is 2-dimensional.

How to Play Mahjong-2D or Shisen-Sho?


The aim is to clear the board, just like in the pyramid Mahjong, matching pairs of similar patterned tiles. The only difference is in how you match the tiles.

In Shisen-Sho, you can click on adjacent tiles if they happen to carry the same pattern on their faces... or you can click on tiles which can be connected in not more than 3 straight lines. (From point A to B, B to C and finally C to D, where A and D are the 2 tiles being connected.) These lines cannot pass through any other tile. It doesn't matter how far the tiles are from each other.

Well... this 2D version of Mahjong one is a bit tough! It should keep you brain-scratching for quite a while! But it is addictive once you figure it out. So have fun!

Ohhh! Is it this simple board type layout or a pyramid kinda 3-D structure? i know Vista comes with a Mahjong, just like we have Spider Solitaire etc in XP... but I'm not sure if it's just "Mahjong" or "Mahjong Titans". You say it's a new comp, right... so it probably came with Vista...
Well whatever it is, both versions of this game rock! :-D
Btw, I was lurking on ur blog a little while ago... it's so CLEAN! LOL! No widgets at all! I guess I'll hv to add your blog's RSS feed manually to my Google Reader! Will come back again & leave my footprints! :-D

And no come on.. i think there are maybe 2 widgets... maybe one :P

Your RSS feed is too adorable.. How do i get tht on my blog?

Divya:
Ha ha ha! U hv so few widgets that u don't even remember their count!

I burnt the RSS feed of my blog using FeedBurner. Apparently, it's now merged with Google, so I could login into it using my gmail id & pswd. And these cartoons... well there are loads of images on the net for RSS buttons!

I just uploaded these pics into my picasa album & then modified the code Feedburner gave me... replaced their img URL with the URL of these images.

If u want, I can email u some images that I saved on my PC. Just drop me a line at the id given on my blogger profile. And if u hv any confusion abt the feedburner thing, just let me know... I'll mail u the detailed procedure for it.

And yes, I hate vista too! :D What lappie did u get? HP? Dell? Sony? ....???
