While mahjong is traditionally played with tiles and people, the game can be played with videogames against AI (computer) or online, or both. Playing any computerized version of Japanese mahjong, a player does not need to worry about game setup, tiles, scoring, and the lack of players. Aside from the lack of players problem, everything else involving the game is done automatically. Thus, a player may simply worry about developing hands and effectively playing the game.
