Mahjong (genre)

From FamiWiki

Mahjong is a genre of video games based on the tactical tile game of the same name. Mahjong has been a staple of Japanese video game consoles since the SG-1000, and several mahjong games were released for the Family Computer and Super Famicom. The most common variation played in Japan and the basis for the vast majority of video game adaptations is ricchi mahjong, which requires players have particular sets of tiles for a complete hand (Tenpai). Scoring is based on patterns of tiles in a hand (Yaku and Melds).
