In ‘Mahjong Crimes,’ 250 levels of Mahjong Solitaire unlock clues as gamers travel through five different scenarios within the iconic mystery. As users climb into their elegant compartment aboard the Orient Express, they’ll be faced with one of seven inscrutable varieties of the classic tile-matching game. They may have to beat the clock to reveal a hidden clue. Or the tiles may have letters rather than Chinese characters, and matching those letters spells out an important facet of the case. ‘Mahjong Crimes’ is the only Mahjong game to feature a Christie murder mystery.

The facts of the case:

• Mahjong and ‘Murder on the Orient Express’: two timeless classics combined into a single great game

• 250 challenging levels, in 5 scenarios from Christie’s mystery

• Power up to get ahead in the game

• Collect unique Mahjong tile sets

• The game stays fresh with more levels, mysteries and tile sets added regularly

“It’s amazing to see Agatha Christie’s story taking shape so brilliantly in this 21st century medium,” said James Prichard, the Chairman and CEO of Agatha Christie Ltd. The executive also happens to be the writer’s great-grandson.
