Gameplay 9/10

Microsoft Mahjong is a classic Japanese solitaire for Windows, in which the key goal is to match pairwise cards. The game has three levels of difficulty and several graphics background landscapes. Visual and acoustic effects are very harmonious.

Add pairs of identical cards, moving the neighboring ones together, until there are no cards left on the playing field. Your goal is to try and “empty” the playing field in the least amount of time to earn the highest possible points. Unsuccessful moves, if necessary, can be rolled back.

Microsoft Mahjong gameplay consists of the following:

  • Choose one of the three available difficulty levels;
  • Inspect the playing field, and find the closest pairs of cards;
  • Move adjacent cards so that two identical cards are next to each other;
  • Empty the playing field, making as few actions as possible in the minimum amount of time, and get the maximum number of points;
  • Roll back up to three unsuccessful moves in a row to complete the game with maximum efficiency.

Lasting Appeal 7/10

Some players quickly lose interest in the game after a month or two. However, they tend to return to the game again after some time.


People who like to play Solitaire and other similar puzzle games will surely get a lot of fun from Microsoft Mahjong. There are many puzzles, although the fact that players need to connect to the internet to use it can make the game a bit limited for some.
