"Shanghai II is Activision's follow-up to their first tile matching game. Players try to remove Mah Jong tiles in pairs from a set pattern. Shanghai II has 8 different tile sets, 12 patterns based on the animals of the Chinese zodiac, and a layout editor for creating patterns.

In addition to the standard game, Shanghai II also features Dragon's Eye, a 2-player Shanghai varriant. Players take turns adding and removing tiles from a small field with one player attempting to remove all the tiles and the other trying to position tiles to make this impossible." --MobyGames.com

Another great Shanghai version for the Mac. It has everything you'll want a game of Shanghai to have - different tiles, layouts, option to reshuffle, suggested move etc. etc. The only downside I could find is the annoying one-color background. It starts out pink which is truly awful. Luckily you can set it to any color you want in the menu. I found a light blue to be the nicest.

(For the records, this one also works fine under classic emulation in 10.4.)

Thank you so much for fixing this one!
I was eager to play it since my MacII broke. I managed to run it with FusionPC and DOSBox, but it is performing much nicer with BII, especially the sounds. SheepShaver (Mandriva 32bit) crashes when I run out of tiles to take away.

Thanks to MCP, who re-uploaded it including a 1.0.5 updater, this game runs fine in SheepShaver now.

It froze up on the title screen when I tried to run it in SheepShaver with System 8.6.
