4 Nin Uchi Mahjong (4人打ち麻雀, "Four Player Strike Mahjong")[3] is a Family Computer video game about mahjong.


This screenshot is a typical game of 4 Nin Uchi Mahjong that is just beginning.

It was only released in Japan using the Japanese language and it was Nintendo's second mahjong game ever made.[2]

The player can play against one to three computer opponents[2] using the tiles associated with the Japanese variation of the game[4] This is also known as the 立直, リーチ (Ready Hand) variation. Spreading to most mahjong-related video games after this one, it has become the most widely accepted form of Mahjong to the Japanese gamer. The "tiles remaining counter" would serve as a reminder to players about the status of the deck.
