Installation:
Carnaval Mahjong 2 downloads to a 71 MB zip file that unzips to three files, (a setup.gcd security wrapper, the set-up file and a read me). To install Carnaval Mahjong 2 click on the orange key file labelled set up and not the setup.gcd file. Those with multiple hard drives can save games on any drive they wish, just change the default installation path. The newly installed game is 72.7 MB in size. The game installs to the following path by default, but can be changed by the user if you prefer:
C:\Program Files (x86)\MyPlayCity.com\Carnaval Mahjong 2
Four shortcuts are installed to the desktop, three of which can be safely deleted (Play Online Games, MyPlayCity Games and shortcuts to a free online game which vary each week). Also, if you don't like icons installed to the quick launch task bar, make sure you uncheck the box when the ''additional tasks'' window appears (after the Select Start Menu Folder window)

Complete lots of layouts to become the master of mahjong in this logic gamecalled Carnaval Mahjong 2! Launch the game and join in this adventure. Both adults and children will enjoy the gorgeous rich graphics and gameplay. You are to join the magic carnival, unlock picturesque locations and make pairs for all the tiles on each board of which there are 120 different layouts representing six locations around the world. When you finish the 20 boards for each location, you'll get a trophy mask — collect all of them to become the champion! The rules are easy enough: a pair of available matching tiles can be removed from the game board. The quicker you remove the tiles — the higher is your score, it means that you get more points during the game. At the beginning of the level, you get the ordinary and special tasks to complete — remove the exact quantity of golden tiles, get the required number of points and comply the level within the designated amount of time or try not to exceed the limit of given moves. Now the "flower" and "seasons" tiles look different, you'll see the tiles with pretty ladies and courageous gentlemen, but the mechanics is the same: if you see them unblocked, click on such a pair to remove. Besides the ordinary ones, there are silver and golden tiles on the board. Removing the silver tiles will restore your chip bonus but if you clear the board from golden tiles, the level is complete. More than 8 hours of captivating gameplay await you in 120 unique levels, are you ready? Cope with all the layouts and get a unique collection of trophies! Own the Kabuki Mask in the Japanese Carnival or add to your collection a Stranger's Mask from the German Festival. Have fun while playing the game Carnaval Mahjong 2 and explore the beautiful countries with their unique history!

The Game:
Carnaval Mahjong 2 (aka Mahjong Carnaval 2) is a standard mahjong game with a carnival theme; (I’m using the English spelling of Carnival as opposed to the Dutch, German, Spanish, Portuguese and French way of spelling it, i.e. Carnaval). You have six sections to complete, each comprising of 20 tables. Only the first set of tables are accessible at the start of the game. The first set is called Argentina. The locked sets have names like Connoisseur, adept, Expert Virtuoso and Maestro, but, once you’ve unlocked them the name of the country is revealed. You can see from the image below what countries are featured.

To make life easier, there are bonuses available such as the shuffle bonus; which is very useful if you are finding it difficult to find any matching tiles. You can access the shuffle button by clicking on the =icon located to the bottom right of the game board. The icon to the bottom left will reveal active pairs by shading out those that are immovable. The icon is represented by the Greek muse Thalia which equates to comedy as opposed to the weeping face representing Melpomene (tragedy). You can also choose from three different tile sets depending on how easy or hard you wish to make your game. The easiest I found was the numbered tiles. You can change tile sets even while in the middle of a game via the options menu. To access the options menu while in game click on the round icon located to the top left of the board. This opens up four buttons that allow you to open up the options menu, the help, and a restart and close game buttons.
The game starts with a tutorial, which I couldn’t skip. For those really familiar with Mahjong matching games this may be a little annoying, however the tutorial does serve to introduce you to the various bonus; available.

There does appear to be four language options i.e. English, German, Russian and French, but I don’t know how to change the language. I presume you’d need to edit the config file that is located in the Resources/XML folder of the installed game. Also, there’s no apparent way of changing the games music except for turning it off and playing your own. Overall, I found the game okay. I’ve played a lot of these so called Mahjong games, but I much prefer the traditional four player Mahjong.

Conclusion:
If you enjoy playing mahjong match two games, then this is yet another you’ll probably enjoy. It has a lighthearted carnival feel to the game. As for the music, it’s pretty nondescript and I found it a little annoying after several minutes so did eventually turn off the music and played my own as background noise. The graphics are good, and the tiles are easily distinguished, especially if you choose the number tile set. I cannot say there is anything exceptional about this game, but it is a decent time waster so suggest you download, install and check it out. Let me know what you think. Regards Whiterabbit

Having problems installing today's game?
If you have a problem installing or activating or getting Carnaval Mahjong 2 to work please visit the problems section, which you can find in the FAQ's thread HERE. Also read through the community’s comments because sometimes fixes have already been posted. The main issue we have is with the giveaway wrapper, which uses a Themida based code to protect the games executable. Unfortunately, Themida is also used to hide malware; so, as a precaution, some security software may block the installation and sometimes even delete the executable file. Blocking or deletion is usually determined partly by the way your computer is set up. Usually you'll get a message saying ''the file is corrupted'', but, the files are okay. There are a couple of things you can do to overcome this issue. The first is to reboot in safe mode with networking, install the game then reboot, or secondly you can (at your own risk) temporarily turn off your security, install the game, then turn your security back on. A note of reassurance to those that choose the latter and quicker method. The game giveaway team have been giving away games for over a decade (Dec 2006 & prior to that, via the main site 2 or 3 times weekly from Oct 2006 to Dec 2006) and have 'NEVER' given away a game infected with malware; they always test every giveaway with several of the top anti-malware suites to ensure all games are free from malware.
If for any reason you want to contact the giveaway team, for example, if you have a problem getting the latest game or other issues that the FAQ's thread or these comments don't cover or solve or if you have a game to offer the community you can do so HERE

Had to leave a comment about this game; it was a pleasure dealing with different pictures on the tiles compared to all the other majhong games. I skipped the tutorial which I guess I shouldn't have as it left me wondering what to do after completing a game and still having holes to fill in the mask icon even though I had played three games. Still enjoyable game.

I should have added I experienced that freeze in the beginning
for a couple of minutes. I think there is suppose to be a tutorial,
but is not working correctly and that was the freeze. One I x'd out
a couple of times. The game ran great! might be a bug! Lee

Hi!

Downloaded very quick and opened easily! Game play is very easy.
Did not see a story or explanation, though seems simple game where one just
matches the tiles. Maybe it gets harder as you climb countries or more involved.
If you enjoy matching only, then game is great. Its okay, but would like
more interesting game! Thanks for another good game and have a good
rest of the weekend, Lee

Ok Windows 10 x64 Pro. Not edge to edge but certainly large enough on 24" monitor even w/ side bands. Sliders for music & sound. You can adjust the tile's designs but not sure how that works in the selection area so just set the number category as first of the three styles. The two 'bonus' pieces help.
Haven't really picked up on the Carnaval theme, maybe gets more dressy further on.
Especially since I like the genre it's a nice keeper @ 8/10 as these go. Thanks GOTD.

The graphics are very nice, and I like "pretty". However, something seems to be wrong. Twice I could see obviously free tiles but was unable to select them. I only tried the game for a few minutes, and I will try it again before uninstalling it, but I doubt the problem will correct itself.

P. S. I am very familiar with Mahjong games.

Installed on Win 7 Home Prem with no issues. Have played first set of the game with no issues. A little different kind of Mahjong game.
