Long ago, the people who bowed before the ancient gods became careless and they forgot about them. They stopped visiting the temples and saying their prayers.

The ancient gods flew into a fury and decided to punish them. However one of the gods felt sorry for the people and wanted to help them avoid their punishment. He can't involve himself personally in mortal affairs, so it's up to you to support him and restore the dilapidated temples.

Legendary Mahjong
In Brief
A Mahjong game with a massive number of levels to play. :)

Legendary Mahjong downloads to a 210 MB zip file that unzips to three files, (a setup.gcd security wrapper, the set up file and a read me). Those with multiple hard drives are able to save games on any drive they wish. The newly installed game is approximately 224 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\Legendary Mahjong
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)
Enjoy a new way to play Mahjong, with varied styles of challenged as you progress. Have the option to customize your game with the layout and tiles of your choice. Get set for a brilliant Mahjong Game with an accompanying campaign to get you well entertained. Overall there is a lot of variety to the game, and these different styles can be both really challenging and a lot of fun at the same time.

The Game:
Review 1:
Do you like mahjong? Like... a lot? Then with nearly a thousand levels, Legendary Mahjong is fluttering its handkerchief coyly your way. Angry about being forgotten, the gods have set out to punish humankind, but luckily the "God of Unbridled Happiness" is going to help you restore their temples and avoid their sullen wrath. Legendary Mahjong is low on bells and whistles, but full to bursting with simply satisfying levels, different game modes, special tiles and more that will keep you busy for a long time.
Legendary MahjongThe basics of mahjong are very, well, basic. The goal is to remove all the tiles from the playing field by clicking two identical tiles, though some tiles, like flowers, can be matched even if they aren't identical as long as they come from the same "family". Because mahjong tiles are stacked, you can only remove a tile as long as it isn't obstructed... if there's something blocking it from sliding out to the left or right, or something stacked on top, you can't use it. Legendary Mahjong keeps this same formula, with a few user-friendly mechanics to make it a little more forgiving. You can click the last set you matched at the bottom of the screen to undo moves, or use the shuffle button to swap all the pieces around randomly, though these aren't available on all levels, and others have special requirements.
The level is won when you match the two glowing green orb tiles, but to get a perfect three-star rating, you'll need to clear the board. The counter to the left shows you how many available matches you have, and if you don't want to resort to shuffling, you'll plan your moves to clear space in the most efficient way possible, because there are often multiple matches of the same sets of tiles. Things get trickier when specific tiles are tossed into the mix, like Lock Tiles, whose key you need to find to remove, and each temple you visit has its own set of rules. The Fire Temple is traditional, for example, though the Earth Temple will have you matching tiles in a specific order.

While Legendary Mahjong doesn't really offer a lot of frills, there's a lot to be said for a game that knows exactly how to do its core concept, and then tips a massive bowl of it onto your plate, saying, "Eat and be sated". Die-hard traditionalists may find the extra elements more gimmicky if all they want is ye olde school-e mahjong, but there's so much of it that you'll still find a lot to enjoy, and the game doesn't require you to finish all of a temple before unlocking the next one. Truth be told, most of the special tiles and modes do feel sort of tacked on, but it's not as if we aren't spoiled for choice. The presentation is simple, but polished, though the in-level soundtrack tends to vanish from time to time. If you're looking for a puzzle game with a lot of twists around one core formula and enough levels to glut yourself on for days, Legendary Mahjong is an easy recommendation. It's guaranteed to keep casual mahjong fans happy if not slightly unnerved by the dead-eyed, glittering stare of "the God of Unbridled Happiness". Isn't that something Trilby should be handling?

Review 2:
With Legendary Mahjong you get exactly what its title tells you, a legendary game that has so much to offer, starting with the different types of game for you to enjoy, each with its own rules and fun strategies. Not limited to this, you may also play over 300 plus levels in its classic mode, from where you get to customize your layout and tiles of choice -- to suit what you want to do whenever you want and there is a lot to keep you entertained in this brilliant game.
At the onset, you get to start with a host of choices as to what style of game you can try. Mainly though, it showcases its Adventure mode predominantly, bragging 500 levels to scour through the entire game. Ultimately, the goal is to restore 6 ancient temples to appease the Gods – from where you get the sections of a challenge from each temple there are in the game. After 4 levels are played, another temple is unlocked, so you can unlock all the temples and play whatever mode you want, without having to finish all the boards in each temple. With 6 different game modes to play through, everything adds up to the huge amount of variety and fun to whole game.
Varieties of play include the Classic mode where you get the usual pairing challenge from the typical mahjong game, the Match mode where tiles are shown at the bottom of the screen and tasks you to make matches with them (over the cluster on deck), the Slide mode, where you slide the tiles to reach to their conclusive pairs, the Numbers mode where you get to match numbered tiles to the sum given, the Triple mode where you get to match tiles that are three of a kind, and the Rivers mode where you make matches by line linking. Each of which gives off a short sequenced tutorials to get you properly backed up with each of the new variation’s unique mechanics.

There is a really nice feel to Legendary Mahjong when you play it. Presentation wise, the game comes with 14 varieties of tiles which themselves gets a unique detail on their own. There is simplicity to the way you play which is refreshing and it keeps you going, especially that it enlists varied mechanics to get you the many ways you can randomize the challenge. The overall look is good, with its simple styling and easy to understand navigation. The games themselves are a lot of fun to play and you can try them all for a free hour of trial, prior to actual purchase.
Overall there is a lot of variety to the game, and these different styles can be both really challenging and a lot of fun at the same time. All in all, the game sees to it that it will keep you entertained for a long time, especially with the varied types of play, and massive number of levels it has to offer.

Other Reviews and Videos of Legendary Mahjong:
You can see Big Fish community reviews of Legendary Mahjong HERE and several in-game videos of game play HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.
If you like solitaire versions of Mahjong, you'll almost certainly like this one. With a thousand boards, Legendary Mahjong should keep you going for several weeks or more. The boards are varied with both Mahjong styled tiles and other tile patterns including numbers. It's an excellent family oriented board game though not true Mahjong which is usually played in a group of four players. (I love the four player game much preferring it to chess. I bought my first Mahjong set with money I'd earned from my paper round when i was 13 years old. Still got the set in the attic). That said, this solitaire game using Mahjong tiles (and others) and a pleasant graphic style is still a very enjoyable game and well worth an 8 out of 10 for game play from me. :)

Problems getting the game to work:
If you're having problems installing or activating or getting Legendary Mahjong to work please visit the FAQ's Thread HERE and read through the communities comments because sometimes fixes have already been posted, for example, a common issue seen since the Themida wrapper was introduced three years ago is that some community members installation of the game are blocked by their security because Themida code has been known to hide malware, (usually an error message is flagged for example 'The executable is corrupted' even though in reality it is not); so as a precaution some anti malware programs will block and even delete the suspect installation files even though the files (i.e the setup, read me and setup.gcd files are actually totally free from malware. This issue can be solved either by rebooting your computer in safe mode with networking or a quicker method is to temporarily turn off your security software to allow the installation. You could also try whitelisting the setup.gcd file. In the almost 11 years this game giveaway site has been operating there has 'never' been a game given away that was infected with malware.
If for any reason you want to contact the giveaway team, for example, you have a game to offer the community, or are unable to download the latest game or other issues that the FAQ's thread or these comments don't cover or solve you can do so HERE
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank MyPlayCity for giving away Legendary Mahjong and also to the game giveaway team, as always, for securing other ways to get free games.

I got this one last time, too, and then never played it! I'm glad it came around again, because now I am playing it. I like the different modes. I haven't played Rivers mahjong since I had it on an old games CD, and now I not only have it, but I know I have it. Slider mode is a real challenge for me -- I keep sliding tiles into traps -- but it's fun.

Thanks, everyone!

Never thought I would have ever had fun playing Mahjong!

I too have this game from a couple of years ago - it's nice to look at and enjoyable to play for a while. I don't normally play games for long, just in between the more serious stuff, and I haven't yet played right through this one - or more than a couple of others, to be honest! But this is quite relaxing, and easy on the eye while you're having a tea break.

If you didn't get it last time it was offered, give it a go this time. Legendary Mahjong is a pleasant little time-waster that takes you right away from the cares of the day. Thanks to GGOTD, to Whiterabbit and to MyPlayCity for a goodun today!

Thanks. Grown to like these even though my main nit is with ones that uses matching flowers/vegetation. Pretty hard to know when they can be matched. From the pictures here I don't see any human figures like in some versions, oriental guys old timey. Maybe they appear at higher levels. The set using numbers looks fun just for a few tries but such simple format would get dull quickly. Overall looks like nice job.

Game downloaded and installed fine, I disabled Avast for 10 minutes to install without any problems. Game play is smooth and graphics are great, my new favorite! Windows 10

This looks like a fun game. Unfortunately the download speed is super slow. nearly three hours to complete. Also no direct download. Have to download via email address. I will try again tomorrow morning.

dadams, My download took less than one (1) minute and it was accomplished by clicking on the BIG GREEN Download Now button.

What is the difference in this giveaway & the paid version? Thank you! :)

Marshell Wooley, There is no difference apart from your browser being redirected to the MyPlayCity home page when you close the game down. This is what pays for getting the full version through the advertising on the site. Part of the earnings that MPC get go to the developer or the license holder of the game.

Again, I am not able to install, only activate. Disable AVG, using another browser, safe mode... nothing works.

Reply   |   Comment by Veronique  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Veronique, Are you using Safe Mode to Download it as well? I have to BOTH download & install in Safe Mode. It works fine that way for me.

Reply   |   Comment by Dax  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Dax, how can I download in safe mode? I have no acces to Internet, even when I click network. Sorry downloading and activating does not work

Reply   |   Comment by Veronique  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

I think I remember there being a version of Safe Mode that specifically had internet access...at least in Windows 10.

Hi, It may be something running on your computer or possibly your modems security that is blocking the download or installation of the game; (probably due to the Themida wrapper) . You could confirm this by downloading one of the weekday games that rarely include the Themida wrapper. If you are able to download and install one of those games, it will at least confirm that the wrapper is the probable cause of the block.

Try turning off background programs that are not required to run windows, then install the game. A way to do this apart from closing them down manually via the task manager is to download the free Game Booster program from Razer. This was specifically designed for games to run on low end systems. What it does it turn off all unnecessary windows background programs that usually run once windows has booted up. With just a single click of a button, all those programs are switch off; a second button will turn them all back on once you've finished playing your game. There is also the ability to program the game booster to turn off non windows applications that also run in the background. This will allow you to either confirm or not that it is one of the programs running on your computer that is blocking the games installation or download. You can get Game Booster free HERE.

Failing that,, have you checked the FAQ's thread over in the game discussion forums HERE.

Whiterabbit-uk, thank you, but windows7, really? I have windows 10 and I know how to start my computer in safe mode. That is not the problem. But that doesn"t work. I just stop looking at this site. It's a shame, because there are lots of games that I like, but it is becoming too complicated to install them. I am not the only one who thinks so. I don't want to install other programs, like the one you mentioned to play a game. I just want to play the game.
But thank you for all the trouble.

Best Mahjong game ever. I installed this back in 2017 when it was offered. I love it! I'm still playing it. Lots of levels and lots of modes. Great graphics and smooth gameplay. If you like computer mahjong games, you'll probably love this one.
