Clear all stones by making combinations of the same type.
How does it work?
Use your mouse to select 2 identical tiles to create a pair. Below you'll see two examples of matching pairs:
You can only make pairs using exposed stones. A stone is exposed when at least one of its long sides has no neighbouring tile. When a tile is enclosed by other tiles you can't use it to make a valid combination. The example below illustrates tiles that can be combined into a matching pair:
In this example the “one” tile in the middle is enclosed by other tiles, making it impossible to combine the “one” into a matching pair:
The various sets of tiles and their value
A Mahjong game consists of several sets of tiles, totalling 146 tiles. You can choose various starting grids.
Numbers: 4 sets of 9 tiles: 36 tiles
Bamboos: 4 sets of 9 tiles: 36 tiles
Dots: 4 sets of 9 tiles: 36 tiles
Wind directions: 4 sets of 4 tiles: 16 tiles
Dragons: 3 sets of 4 tiles : 12 tiles
Flowers: 4 sets of 2 tiles: 8 tiles
Shuffle: 2 sets of 1 tile: 2 tiles
2 matching numbers: 5 points
2 matching bamboos: 5 points
2 matching dots: 5 points
2 matching wind directions: 15 points
2 matching dragons: 25 points
2 matching flowers: 50 points
For each combination of a suit and its matching stone you receive a certain amount of points (depending on the suit). For every following combination of a pair of the same suit you combo bonuspoints!
Score combo bonuspoints:
1st combination = value tile
2nd combination = value tile + 5 points
3rd combination = value tile + 10 points
4th combination = value tile + 20 points
5th combination = value tile + 30 points
6th combination = value tile + 45 points
7th combination = value tile + 60 points
8th combination = value tile + 85 points
9th combination = value tile + 110 points
10th combination = value tile + 110 + 40 points
The "exposed pairs" indicate how many combinations are left in the game. When there are no combinations left, there are three options to continue playing:
There are two shuffle stones present in the game. When the shuffle stones become visible you can select them to shuffle the board. New combinations will become possible.
You can always buy a hint. For 30 points a combination will become visible.
Shuffle the board
If you want to create new combinations you can shuffle the board for 100 points. New possibilities will become visible on the board.
