Mahjong In Poculis for Mac makes learning Mahjong -- a popular game of strategy, skill, and a bit of luck -- fun. You can challenge yourself with six unique themes, all offering you a different layout with new obstacles to overcome. The gameplay is loads of fun, but only after you've learned the basics of matching tiles and scoring points, which doesn't take too long.

Even though Mahjong In Poculis comes with six nice themes, only one is available, initially; to enjoy the others you have to download them from the Web. It took only a few minutes to download each of the optional themes, and we liked that the themes took up little space on our computer. The gameplay is challenging and consists mainly of matching and removing titles to score points, but this is not as easy as it sounds. Since the game uses the classic Mahjong Solitaire rule, you can only select and match the tiles found at the layout's border. The game does offer detailed rules via an in-game tutorial and gameplay hints, though, and if you keep on at it, you will fall in love with it sooner or later. Each theme lets you check world rankings and other scores, as well as earn trophies based on your performance, making this game highly replayable.

If you are looking for an interesting game that combines matching with strategy skills, you should consider Mahjong In Poculis. The challenging but entertaining gameplay, the many levels, and the different themes it offers make it a wonderful gaming experience. Whether you've played Mahjong or not, you will want to try this game on your Mac.

What's new in version 5.65

I have made a new release to avoid a bug for Mac. The bug comes from the used technology that put files into a temporary folder that is deleted on each OSX update, making players loosing their scores. I did a workaround and I highly recommend every one to update to the new version.

The technology used to make the game has disabled the webcam functionality in their latests builds so you can't take photos anymore. I'll make a new release when it is available again.
