Mahjongg is a classic game of pattern recognition. Put your matching skills and strategic know-how to the test in this classic Chinese tile game. In Mahjongg, 144 tiles are placed face-up on the board, and it’s up to you to clear the board by removing pairs of matching tiles. While being easy to explain, and technically easy to play, Mahjongg isn’t quite a walk in the park. You only win if you clear the board. Run out of moves while there are still tiles to be played, and you lose.
Just click matching tiles to remove them. There are special tiles, too—flowers and seasons. Any two of these can be matched. In other words, the summer tile can be matched with the sprint, fall, or winter tiles. And any two flower tiles can be matched. Outside of that, only exactly matching tiles can be paired and removed. The difficulty comes in from getting stuck. There are 5 different tile arrangements, making up five difficulties. To win, you have to clear the board, but to do this, you can’t run out of movies. Therein lies the challenge. You almost have to plan your moves ahead to avoid getting stuck. Sometimes it’s wiser not to match the easy tiles to save them for the deeply buried tiles.
