Marc Noakes▸ Task 5 – Defining Game Solutions


Mahjong. Components = character tiles, playing surface, tile holders, toothpicks (instead of money). 2 player or 4 player modes (can also be adapted for single player). Game is similar to Gin and Rummy. Instructions are integrated into the rules, which can be difficult to follow owing to errors in translation from Chinese. The game is based on chance and skill, therefore levels are determined by player experience and ability. Rules are explicit but local variations can depend on implicit understanding. This game is easy to play in basic form. However a mismatch in ability level can make the game very frustrating.
