  • Only the open tiles can be selected.

  • Open tile is the tile which has one of the tile's lateral sides open, meaning that no other tiles are located immediately next to it.

  • Only when matching, open tiles can be removed from the game board.

  • Matching tiles are those where the face pictograms match.

Note:

There are exceptions to this rule! In the traditional game of Mahjong each tile has a matching one except for the Flowers and Seasons tiles.

  • The Flowers tiles have no doubles in the set and can be matched directly to each-other.

  • The Seasons tiles have no doubles in the set and can be matched directly to each-other.

  • Not every KMahjongg game can be finished. Sometimes the tiles are mixed in such a way that it may not be possible to find all the matches. This problem can be avoided. Please refer to this section of the configuration dialog.

  • To be eligible for a place amongst the high scores the player has to complete a game instance within the shortest period of time possible.

Note:

If the player uses the Hint feature the record will not be considered as a high score.
