Mahjong Battles Egypt
Mahjong Battles Egypt is a unique kind of Mahjong. In this installment of the popular Chinese game, the player is against a rival in a battle of matching tiles with a higher score. Each tile gives different points, and opponents should aim to match as high point tile as possible.
There are three game modes, the first one being you against one of three Egyptian gods. Each one has a different difficulty. When choosing a rival god, the player can also pick his character out of eight gods. There is also a mode called Hotseat. It lets you enjoy Ancient Egypt against a friend on the same device. You can both choose a god to play as and compete against each other.
The third game mode is Campaign, and in it, you play with a series of games against 7 Egypt gods. You can choose the difficulty before starting. Otherwise, the game follows the rules of Classic Mahjong. The player can match tiles only if they are free to move in two directions.

Bubble Shooter Egypt
Did you know that cats were sacred in Ancient Egypt? They were so important that there was a death penalty for killing a cat, even by mistake.

Now we’re going to the East. The Mahjong game originates from China, though this installment of the notorious title is Japan-themed with beautiful landscapes from the Country of the Rising Sun. The rules are the same as classic Mahjong. To match tiles their left or right side should be open.
This version is more beginner-friendly since, after some seconds, it starts giving you hints to where the twin tiles are.

I would recommend you try every themed title on our list. You never know which culture might appeal to you. Who knows, maybe you can start learning a new language soon?
We’ve depicted cultures that have once had strict laws and obedience. Ancient Egyptians used to evaluate the life of a person the same as the life of a cat. Their gods had the power to turn into different animals and control various parts of life itself.
Some African tribes, though, paint their bodies in white to create some dramatic body artworks. Japan is presented with its beautiful nature and landscapes. The Mahjong tiles are what depict the Chinese characters and symbols.
