Brillian and addictive! A must play for any Mah-Jong fan, full of coulourful backgrounds and artwork, and tile variants are excellent, as are the variants in gameplay.

Creative Mix of Mahjong & Archaeology
I love this relaxing game. First, I liked the tiles as one of the choices is Dogs and Puppies. That made me like this right away. After each mahjong level is completed, you go to the "dig site" and recover the historical artifacts. There is a short explanation of each recovered item. Part of the recovery action is to "clean and polish each artifact. Sometimes it takes 3 or 4 mahjong levels to find the entire artifact.
It is not a hard game, but rather a departure from the normal mahjong games. It relaxes me and I really enjoy it. I learn a little history, and I just have fun. I think you may like it!

Great Mix - Mahjong and Archeology
You have been hired to go to various archeological dig sites, find rare Jade items and return them to the museum for donation to a new exhibit. Without this Jade Exhibit, the museum will close its doors for sure. It's now up to you to save the museum!
Pretty good considering your basically looking at a map, clicking on a lit circle - that's your level indicator, and playing a Mahjong game. The map of dig sites is very monochromatic in color.
The music was very calm and relaxing but the side effects? TOTALLY had to turn w-a-a-ay down. When you match the tiles in the Mahjong game the side effects make a sound like an old man wheezing or sighing - very distracting and highly annoying! Ugh.
Each "dig site" is a Mahjong game. Once you finish the game you gain either a complete artifact or one of several pieces of artifacts that you must find, brush, clean and donate. How does all this happen? Because when you have successfully completed each level of Mahjong, you are awarded a tool - such as a set of brushes, cleaning supplies, repair supplies (to put several pieces of artifacts together). Once brushed, cleaned and repaired (if necessary), you donate the item to the Museum Director and it is cataloged, given a name and put on display.
I thoroughly enjoyed this game. I love Mahjong. In fact, I own several Mahjong games purchased from the BF site. The more unique, the better I like it. This not only tells a story, teaches you about the artifacts you find, but also gives you a job to complete. Unfortunately, it had only 3 tile selections. And the game was so easy I could probably do it blindfolded (not really, but you get the point, right?).
Someday I may add this game to my stash of Mahjong games, but it didn't have enough of a "wow" factor at the end of the game for me to rush right out and purchase it. DEFINITELY on my wish list though.
This Glam-ma says definitely try the demo, if you can get over the easiness of the game and limited number of tile selections, you might just really enjoy the game. It's free for an hour so go to it!
