Not for my eyes

Summary: Just received the game today, and will put it back in the box and write off as a poor choice. Not only do you need a magnifying glass to play the game, but you really need one to read the little book that comes with it. I thought the mahjong game in Touchmaster was a little hard to decipher...
Summary: I love playing Mah Jong on the internet and was anxious to receive this DS version. However I was very disappointed when it arrived. Tiles and characters on the tiles are EXTREMELY SMALL - infact, so small that I could not distinguish the detail of most. This was a total waste of money for me.
Summary: Just who is this game intended for? The type in the Instruction Booklet is way too small; the graphics are very poor; AND the instructions are poorly written. Come on, give this old lady a break! Even with my reading glasses on, I couldn't read it. Now to the game itself.
Summary: I love playing Mah Jong on the computer and was very excited when I found one for my DS. I assumed they would be zoomed in on one side of the screen like the sudoku or crossword games. My mistake. I was in a hurry and didn't take the time to read the reviews.
Summary: First, I admit I now use glasses to read. BUT even WITH my glasses I could not make out the tiles. I kept trying for awhile thinking I would eventually learn to recognize the tile differences. Finally I gave up and returned the game [which I have to be REALLY frustrated to do!].
Summary: It is very similar to the solitaire card games which abound for the DS except that it uses the faces of Mahjong tiles and if that's all you want then get it. However if your looking for the skill and challenge of the real thing, you won't find it here.
Summary: I bought this game for my son for Xmas as he really liked playing the real game of Mah Jong for 4 people using actual tiles. We were both very disappointed that this is not like the game we understood as Mah Jong.
Summary: I suggested this game as a present for my husband from his mum as we both have mah jong sets and thought this might be a good idea to play on the ds without all the clearing up of the tiles afterwards. In my opinion,. this is not mah jong as you would play it in real life.
