    It is just a game, nothing to be concerned about. Some people might apply superstitions to it, but people do that with every game.

    I play Mahjong Titans on the www, and it's simply a solitaire game of pattern matching. I've never played "official" Mahjong.

    Yes, I once read of Chess described as "little idols on an eight by eight grid."

    Real Mahjong is quite different - as tiles are dealt and four players are required.

    But to answer the OP, it is just a game. I suppose if you bet money, some people would disapprove, but that's the gambling, not the game.

    There's nothing wrong with that. Just a game. Play if you like.
