Shanghai is the classic mah-jongg game from Activision that's been entertaining and challenging computer users for over a decade. Shanghai: Dynasty, the latest installment in this series combines the addictive gameplay of this ancient Chinese tile-matching game with stunning graphics, nine 3D tile sets with themes, animated rewards, and customizable tile sets and layouts. In addition to the familiar environs of Classic Shanghai, the game also includes a multiplayer battle called Pandamonium [sic
]; a quirky gem called Dynasty, in which you can wreak havoc on your opponent's tiles; and Shanghai for Kids, a specially-designed version of the game that features fewer tiles and layouts designed to challenge a youngster's puzzle-solving skills and improve eye-hand coordination. This is a demo version of the game, with limited tile sets and animation, and it does not reshuffle the tiles at the end of a game.
