The Yakuman wiki last edited by ReverendHunt on 08/06/13 04:59PM View full history


Yakuman is a Mahjong game developed by Intelligent Systems Co., Ltd. and published by Nintendo for the Game Boy in 1989. Yakuman is one of the four launch titles for the Game Boy in Japan, but was never released outside of Japan. Yakuman is a term used in Mahjong for a winning hand.


Yakuman supports two players using the Game Boy Link Cable. Yakuman plays like a typical game of Mahjong with options to change the A.I. difficulty and to turn off the BGM. The type of Mahjong in Yakuman should not be confused with Mahjong Solitaire, the type of Mahjong played in Shanghai. Instead this is basic Mahjong which is played with two players.
