Matching tiles are such tiles where the face pictograms match exactly.
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.
Tiles can only be removed if they can be connected with a maximum of three connected lines that do not cross any other tile. Lines can be horizontal or vertical, but not diagonal.
You do not have to draw the lines by yourself, the game does this for you. Just mark two matching tiles on the board, if they can be connected by a line with at most two bends, the line is drawn and the tiles are removed.
Lines may only cross empty areas of the board.
Some games are unsolvable. If you would like to avoid unsolvable games check the option Create solvable games only in the configuration dialog.
The scores are awarded for the time the player needs to remove all the tiles from the game board. Games with more tiles give more scores.
If you played with the Gravity setting enabled, the score will be doubled.
To be eligible for a place amongst the high scores player has to complete a game instance within the shortest period of time possible.
If the player uses the “Undo” or “Hint” feature the record will not be considered as a high score.
