Sports Match is another layout of 'Szechuan'-style solitaire mahjong but the tiles have been changed to a sports theme. The background is made up of grey squares. The character that smashes matched tiles is dressed in a referee uniform.

Dragon Punch uses traditional mahjong tiles. The background is green squares and has pictures of people and bamboo on it. The character that smashes matched tiles is a fat, shirtless Asian man with glasses.
