The first installment in Koei's mahjong series.
Mahjong Taikai ("Mahjong Tournament") is a 1989 Famicom mahjong game from Koei and an unknown developer. It features multiple historical figures as possible CPU opponents, including Masamune Date and Napoleon Bonapart.
As with any mahjong game, the goal is to complete a winning hand before any of the other players can, and the player earns an amount of points dependent on the "strength" of their winning hand. They might also lose points depending on who won and how.
Koei would continue making Mahjong Taikai games for other platforms, including Super Mahjong Taikai for the Super Famicom in 1992.
Mahjong Kazoku is a Mahjong game released only in Japan for the Famicom Disk System.
Mahjong Kazoku ("Mahjong Family") is a standard Mahjong simulation game for Nintendo's Famicom Disk System. It is a one-on-one version of the game, rather than the standard four-player board game arrangement, and it incorporates many of the various and byzantine scoring rules of the game.
Irem developed and published the game but left a mysterious licensing credit to Ox Inc. on the title screen. It's possible the game is a port of an obscure Japanese Mahjong computer game, or at least borrows some of its coding for the AI opponent or scoring systems.
