Major Aspects of Mahjong Connect

February 21, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 180

Mahjong, a game native to China, has achieved popularity all over the world. Although the history of this game is not very clear, it is believed that this game was played by the elite class of China until a very long time, before it was discovered by others and became popular elsewhere in the entire world.

Traditional Mahjong consists of four players, all of whom aim to draw the tiles and discard them as early as possible in the limited number of moves available to them. A set of mahjong tiles consists of 144 pieces. Each tile has a design embossed on it and a set contains 36 character tiles, 36 circle tiles, 36 bamboo tiles 12 dragon tiles, 16 wind tiles, 8 season tiles and 8 flower tiles.

As the game gained popularity, variations of it evolved and these became a rage too. Mahjong Connect is one of the variations of this game and this game does not require four players. It consists of 140 tiles that can be arranged in ten rows of fourteen tiles each. Almost all the tiles from a traditional Mahjong set are used. The player has to play in a timed environment, but this can be disabled in some versions. The objective of the game is to eliminate the tiles by connecting two identical ones via a pathway. It is necessary to find a pathway to connect the tiles, else the move is invalid.

Another feature which is available on a computerized version of this game is the hint feature. In case, a user gets stuck he can opt for a hint, a computer generated hint is shown to the user. Some games deduct points for showing a hint or the time may be deducted in other versions. It is necessary for the player to finish the game in the allotted time frame in order to win.

This game requires strategic thinking. It requires the player to think ahead and plan his moves so that he can unlock tiles which will enable him to continue without encountering a deadlock. This calculative thinking sharpens the mental abilities of a person and research has proven that it is very helpful for those suffering from dementia.

Mahjong Connect is a wonderful game to play on any occasion. It can be played on a family picnic, on a quite Sunday afternoon with friends or when you're alone and want a way to challenge yourself mentally and have some fun; this game can truly help you have an enjoyable time.
