Obsession awaits. The game of ivory tiles, played by seafarers, scoundrels and emperors of the far east for centuries, is brought to you in modern form for the Lynx - as Shanghai.

Ancient tiles are stacked randomly in mystical shapes awaiting your challenge. 144 tiles beckon your skill and strategy in matching pairs, eliminating them from the board, while revealing new tiles underneath.

Accept the challenge alone or with a friend in a cooperative or competitive two-player game agains the Dragon, the Hawk, the Bear - any of seven different puzzle boards.

For 3000 years the dragon of tiles has challenged the Orient. Now it challenges you!

Note: This Japanese variant of Shanghai came with an additional Japanese language manual.
