    "enjoy this "smorgasbord" of games +graphics + music"

    November 22, 2009  |   By dmjcalma

    Version: Kyodai Mahjongg 2006 1.42

    Pros

    variety of games, music, graphics, nice options that are truly useful/helpful

    Cons

    Hate that it's not free of the reminders to register / pay for the non-free version.

    Summary

    This is a great game, even for those, like me, who get confused by traditional mahjong. Kayodai is a great, versatile game that reminds one of many other games, due to the variety of selections in this download. Great job! to the creators

    "The best 'Freebie' arround"

    November 17, 2009  |   By tekni

    Version: Kyodai Mahjongg 2006 1.42

    Pros

    Click 'Tiles' then 'Real Tiles' then '3D' and you'll see what I mean by the best Mahjongg Solitaire. Love the motion and music too.

    Cons

    Graphics just a little unstable as some of these older games can be, but no problem.

    Summary

    Not too compulsive or too time consuming. Solitaire beat the clock takes arround six mins to complete with a little luck. Where the compulsive games are hard to drop and run, you'll have no problem leaving this to catch your bus. If you like Solitaire beat your last time Mahjongg games you'll love this one.

    "Very good. I like the auto-perspective view."

    November 15, 2009  |   By fredcone3

    Version: Kyodai Mahjongg 2006 1.42

    Pros

    I like the easy sizing. I like that you can turn the music on and off with one click without affecting the game sounds. I like the many game options and toolbar options available.

    Cons

    It does take a while to work through the many options and settings, but you can play it without changing any at all.

    Summary

    It is well worth trying options until you find the ones you prefer. It is very clear which tiles are dragons, flowers, or seasons, unlike the tiles in some other versions I tried. I particularly like the mode where the part of the board that your pointer is on tilts up, so you can see all of the tiles in that part of the board (they are not then partially obscured by tiles on a higher level)! This is 3D, Contemplation Mode, I use the Normal sub-setting. I plan to buy this game next pay day.

    "Excellent!"

    November 4, 2009  |   By John Radford

    Version: Kyodai Mahjongg 2006 1.42

    Pros

    One of the best time wasters I have ever come across. But it is very relaxing at the same time.

    Cons

    Repetitious music does tend to get a little irritating after a while

    Summary

    Unlike previous versions, this one does disappear immediately when you hit exit. And the 3D makes it a lot easier to play

    "Excellent!"

    September 19, 2009  |   By judabeee25

    Version: Kyodai Mahjongg 2006 1.42

    Pros

    The graphics and effects are freakin awesome! VERY customizable! Best of all it's 7 games in one! You get the classic Mahjong in both solitaire and two-player options. You also get 6 more games! Hours of fun!

    Cons

    UGH! The music is annoying after a while and sounds more like native american music than oriental! The tune played when you are out of moves is hideous! Most of the time I play with the sound turned OFF!

    Summary

    If you enjoy classic Mahjong you will MOST DEF enjoy this game! It is WELL WORTH the time downloading it!

    "Very interesting and challenging"

    September 18, 2009  |   By waltraut28

    Version: Kyodai Mahjongg 2006 1.42

    Pros

    It's fun and entertaining, as well as challenging

    Cons

    Can't think of anything that I wouldn't like, except I wouold like a hard copy (CD) of it

    Summary

    I like the variety of challenging pictures, trying to beat my own time, which doesn't always work, depending on the mood I'm in.
    I like this program so much in that I even paid for it.
    If it's possible I sure would like to get a hard copy (CD) of it, since my computer crashed and I had a hard time getting the program back. If that can be done, then all is perfect.

    "The best mahjong ever"

    July 24, 2009  |   By inpoculis789

    Version: Kyodai Mahjongg 2006 1.42

    Pros

    Everything is polished in this game. I like the musics, the graphics, the user interface and the arising atmosphere.

    Cons

    The background image rendered as cube mapping could have been improved.

    Summary

    I won't repeat what the others said, I would just like to tell a personnal history:
    As I fell in love of this game 5 years ago, I tried to do mine! Yes I have made a Mahjong game because I was completely captivated by the outstanding Ky├┤dai.
    Mine is not as polished but I think it is a good companion. It is named: "in-poculis mahjong" and it is of course available on download.com

    "Addicted - play every day."

    July 11, 2009  |   By racet

    Version: Kyodai Mahjongg 2006 1.42

    Pros

    Variety. Only play each layout to 8 successful solutions, then switch.

    Cons

    Nothing, so far.

    Summary

    Each new version only adds to the enjoyability. New, extra music is nice.
    3D is a great help to solutions in Solitaire.
    Can't live without it!!

    "Brilliant work. I'd Even Buy It."

    June 16, 2009  |   By treazured

    Version: Kyodai Mahjongg 2006 1.42

    Pros

    I have other mahjongg games but this is the best. Choice of music - good music - many different games, tile sets, choice of 2D or 3D, beautifully rendered. You can sit down for 5 minutes of play or a lot longer. Love it.

    Cons

    Personally I am not wild about the moving board (3D mode), but others who play it here (home) love the moving board.

    Summary

    Excellently crafted game. Almost zen-like to play. Beautiful choices of backgrounds, tiles, stones, games and music. Easily personalized to your preferences. Very simple for first time gamer to use and personalize. (husband is not a computer person but he is able to choose the tiles, background, games and music he prefers. I have it on the kitchen computer, an old relic from the last century, and the game runs on it without crashing the machine. Kyodai Mahjongg is a keeper.

    "Fantastic!"

    May 26, 2009  |   By RonKZ

    Version: Kyodai Mahjongg 2006 1.42

    Pros

    Wish that the author Rene Gillies had written windoze, he's amazing and a class act.
    Cheap and free upgrades for life -- I started using Kyodai in 1998.
    great graphics and tilesets and music, wow.

    Cons

    hard to get the song sequence as one would like. Some great music

    Summary

    I found nothing ever in any late edition of Kyodai that didn't work as one has expected. From the beginning it was better than anything ever sold by Windoze.
