Does anyone have the old mah jongg for windows, v. 1.0 by Ron Balewski? I had it on an old computer, but that's gone now. I have one of his old ones, but I still like the original the best. I've searched all the sites that talk about old games, but can't find one to download.

You likely won't find one you can use on a newer pc- I am the same about the old Lemmings game (for win 3.1) I loved it, and still have the files but there isn't any way to use it. Sometimes progress is not good !

Well darn it KYWoods, now ya got me crawlin' around on my hands and knees lookin' at the bottom shelf of my book shelf to find my 2 Mahjongg cd-rom cases!! LOL!!!!!!

The ones I've got are "Moraff's MoreJongg - Volume 1" and "Mahjongg Madness"... I can't find, on the case, who they're from (I would guess the first one is from Moraff, heh heh)... I don't have my cheaters on at the moment and DARNIT, I wear bi-focal contact lenses, I'm not SUPPOSED to need to wear my cheaters anymore!! < =P

I have an old non-computer set, it was my mom's. I don't know how to play, though. She bought it back in the 70's when we first moved here and used to play with my aunts. It's such a beautiful game, all those tiles... so pretty!

Smiley, I hope you've got someone in the family who can teach you the game, it's wonderfully addictive! My computer version of choice is the Moraff one, and I play it every single day. I've also got one for the Playstation, but I haven't played that one in a while. Please do try to learn it, I think you'd be glad you did. :)

I have seen the Moraff ones, and tried to download one last night, but my computer said it couldn't open the file. There is one with cat pictures

The old one I'm looking for is by Ron Balewski. It was his first one for Windows, and Doug may just have found it! I am at work, but I will try downloading it when I get home. I'll let you know if it's the one. Thanks!
Yep, it's addictive, lol.

Edit: Sheesh, I feel dumb now...the one I have IS v. 1.0.
Now I remember--the old one I once had was on a friend's ancient computer, and it included a set of tiles that is not on this version. I may never find it, as I don't remember the name of the tileset. It was designed by a man named 'Clive'; can't remember his last name, but it was included with Ron Balewski's tilesets. In the description he said something like, "These are easier to see than those yang symbols". LOL Does that ring a bell for anyone?
