Azumanga Donjyara Daioh, a puzzle game similar to mahjong and based on the Azumanga Daioh franchise, was released by Bandai for the PlayStation on April 18, 2002.



Like mahjong, Azumanga Donjyara Daioh is a tile-matching game. Each player is given eight blocks each round. To win a game, you must have three sets of three different characters (three of each character). You can also win in other ways with two sets. In addition, there is a special Chiyo-chichi piece in the game. When you get it, it is automatically a stand-in for any of your pieces. If you have 2/3 sets it works just as a stand-in, and you receive a "Reach." When you manage to get two full sets and half a set, you also achieve a "Reach." This mode makes your character automatically move pieces, until you get the last one you need for three full sets.

There's also a "in-game" manual which shows how many points the different combinations make, by pressing pause in a game, and click on the top option. There is a great number of different combinations.

After you have moved around 10 times, the game will be set as a tie. If this happens, you may lose your points. The characters have different strong points, which has both upsides and downsides. You may get extra points for winning when choosing a specific character, but if you lose the points will go as well.


  • Judging by Tomo and Chiyo's hairstyles, this game takes place during the summer of third year, likely before Episode 22, between Episodes 22 and 23, or shortly after Episode 23 (based on the fact that the girls are in their summer uniforms).
