Kyodai Mahjongg Tilesets


The following are tilesets I have designed for myself and for friends who play Kyodai. I enjoy playing using a variety of tilesets, and given my own interest in the Viking Age I guess it's natural that I made some Viking-themed tilesets for myself. I retain the copyright on all artwork, but make the tilesets freely available to other Kyodai fans for your own personal enjoyment.

Tileset Development

In designing new tilesets, I'm gradually building new blank tilesets as well. A few of these are included here, both as JPEGs and in PNG format for use with programs such as Macromedia's Fireworks3.

What is Kyodai?

Kyodai Mahjongg is a mahjongg solitaire game in which a layout of mahjongg tiles is presented, and must be removed by selecting matched pairs. This is an absorbing and fun type of solitaire all on its own, but Kyodai takes mahjongg solitaire to a whole new level of customization. Users can specify the background images, the music, custom tile layouts, and custom designs for the tiles themselves. The game was created and designed by René-Gilles Deberdt.
