Mahjong Solitaire Halloween Edition is a fun and much spookier version of the Original Mahjong Solitaire for Kindle. The set up is exactly the same except for the labels on the tiles.
If you are new to Mahjong Solitaire, let me give you a basic run down of how the game is played. There are sets of tiles arranged in stacks, or stair steps. Your goal is to remove al of the tiles from the board by matching them up.
Tiles can be removed when both left and right sides are free, or are on top of the stack. the matches can go across the stacks, in other words, the tiles don’t have to be in the stack to match them.
There are 13 tile sets, and there are two Halloween themed ones. Scary and Super Scary. Scary is just tiles with spooky letters. Super Scary is a mix of Halloween characters. The face one gives me the creeps, but that’s the point, right?
If you get stuck, try the Hint feature. Use the Kindle’s 5-way toggle button to select and match the tiles. Mahjong Solitaire Halloween Edition is pretty intuitive. I think the Halloween characters: witches, ghosts, pumpkins, etc are easier to distinguish on the board. So, you don’t have to worry about matching up the wrong tiles.
A computer version of Mahjong Solitaire has been around since the early 1980’s. The game has gone under several names, It is loosely based on a Chinese game called Turtle. There are Windows Vista and Windows 7 versions called Mahjong Titans. It is primarily a computer game, but there is also an actual wooden tile form as well. more
The good part about the Kindle edition of the Mahjong Solitaire games over the PC and wooden versions is that they are fully portable. You can play them in the car on a long trip, on the beach, or during long waits in the doctor’s waiting room. Speaking of traveling, I’m sure there will be plenty of that during the holiday season.
Mahjong Solitaire Halloween edition is a fun game for all ages. It could be a good, safe family activity for Halloween.
It would be neat to see more holiday versions of Mahjong Solitaire. I’m sure that is in the works.
The Halloween games for Kindle are having a .99 sale, so grab them while you can. There are no reviews yet. I’m eager to see what others think.
Mahjong Solitaire Halloween Edition is compatible with the latest generation keyboardless Kindle, as well as older models.
