Bit of an odd question and I'm not sure if this is the correct forum, but does anybody know of any mahjongg games for Linux? I don't mean that tile matching crap (there seem to be an infinite supply of those), I'm after real mahjongg.

I used 4 Winds back in my Windows days but I'm having a significantly more trouble finding something for Linux.

Thanks, hope someone can help.

EDIT: Just a suggestion, would the addition of a Linux gaming forum be out of the question? Or is there one already and I'm just too stupid to find it?

Real Majongg

What do you mean by real ? There is Kmahjongg which is KDE's version and another one mahjongg, or do a search on sourceforge.

I mean mahjongg games that are actually mahjongg. Tile matching games like those you mentioned use mahjongg tiles, but that is where the similarity ends, they are nothing like the real game.

I mean the 4 player game in which the player collects chows pungs and kongs to win.

i was going to go on and mention about how mahjongg comes with my distro but once you said that one is not the real game, you threw me for a loop....i had no idea there was such a thing....a 4 player game with pungs and kongs (whatever that is ;-) hehe)
anyways i have no idea if any/all/none of these fit your specs but heres a link:
