This game is known in Japan as "Dragon Punch".


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.

The Japanese version ("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.
