From the developer:
While MahJong might seem like a complicated game to play, what with all the unusally-decorated tiles; but it's actually quite easy to learn (though mastery will take a while). Think of it as a kind of Gin Rummy, but far less boring!
The basic rules are simple: You collect sets of 4 of a kind, 3 of a kind, and/or 3 in sequence; so that you end up with four sets of tiles. Add a final pair of tiles to finish the job. If you do this before everyone else, you get to yell MahJong!; and win the round. There are four rounds to a game. Whoever wins the most rounds wins the game. [Since this game has one human playing against three computerized opponents, the complicated (and often contradictory) rules of scoring and betting are dispensed with.]
