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.
Family Mahjong II: Shanghai e no Michi is a Mahjong game released only in Japan for the Nintendo Famicom.
Family Mahjong II: Shanghai e no Michi is a Mahjong game and the direct sequel to Family Mahjong. In addition to the standard Mahjong mode, there is a tournament mode with a slight RPG aspect to it, in that the player can enhance certain stats after winning games in order to increase their odds in future rounds of the tournament.
The game is a one-on-one version of the game, less common in real-life Mahjong games but the standard for computer adaptations due to the reduced complexity of having only a single AI opponent. Nihon Bussan was responsible for Family Mahjong II's development and was at the time fairly well known for their Mahjong Arcade games.
The team behind the hit party games Fibbage, Quiplash, and YOU DON’T KNOW JACK presents Drawful 2, the game of terrible drawings and hilariously wrong answers!
You use your phone or tablet to draw weird and funny things like “pitcher of nachos” or “death by trombone.” The other players type in what they think the (probably terrible) drawing is and those become the multiple-choice wrong answers. Then everyone - even an audience of potentially thousands – tries to guess the REAL answer.
Drawful 2 is a go-to party game that everyone can play and enjoy!
