Genre: Card / Tile game - Shisen-Sho / Four Rivers
Group DescriptionGames based on the tile-matching game popularized by Irem with the 1989 coin-op Shisen-Sho, also known as Match It. The gameplay involves removing matching tiles -- often traditional Chinese mahjong tiles -- from a preset arrangement. Pairs can only be removed if they can be connected by a line, with no more than two bends, which does not pass through any other tile on the board.
Not to be confused with the better-known Shanghai, which also commonly uses traditional mahjong tiles and involves removing them in pairs, but has very different rules for doing so.
