Mahjong Ō Densetsu Despite the title (which means Mahjong: Legend of a King), this game doesn't include any story, and is entirely dedicated to playing a board game with mahjong matches against a computer AI-controlled opponent. The main portion of the gameplay takes place on a top-down board, divided into squares. The player has to press a key to stop the rotation of numbers, which are equivalent to a dice roll. The number indicates the amount of squares the player can advance. As in most games of this kind, different squares can have a beneficial or damaging effect on the player's progress. Certain squares marked "Item" allow the player to buy items, which can give him advantage during mahjong parties or movement on the board. Most of the squares lead to a mahjong game against computer AI. If the player fails to beat the opponent in three rounds, it's Game Over. [source:mobygames]
