Video: The KMahjongg Challenge
I've been playing one form or another of electronic Mahjongg for a number of years. One of the first games I remember was Activision's Shanghai for my Atari ST back in the late 80's. In modern times I mostly play KMahjongg. GNOME has a pretty good flavor too... but since I've been using KDE for so long, I've got more time in with KMahjongg. One feature of the Atari ST version that I miss was the competitive mode that had two flavors: 1) two player, take off as many tiles as you can before you choke and hand it off to the other player, or 2) Take off one tile and pass it to the next player... or at least that is how I remember it. KDE has a second flavor of Mahjongg for online play named Kajongg but I haven't figured that out yet. Anyone played Kajongg?
One question I've been asking myself over the years though... is how good am I at Mahjongg? I'm posting this video to show a sample play session. It isn't my best game/time but it isn't bad... and I also show my top 10 times. Anyone else close to me? I challenge you to post your top times. The video has no sound. I could have put some loud trance beat behind it, but I find those videos annoying. I prefer the default tile layout (dragon?) and the traditional tile theme.
