Mahjong Solitaire Rules

You need to remove unblocked tiles of the same suit or type in pairs. There is an exception for bonus tiles. Any two Season tiles can be removed from the board, this rule also applies to Flower tiles.

Mahjong Solitaire Rules

For example, to remove the tile “Bamboo #5”, you'll need the same tile.

The "East Wind" tile needs a similar pair tile, and the "Red Dragon" won't match with "Green Dragon" or "White Dragon".

However, “Spring” can be paired with “Winter”, “Summer” or “Autumn”, depending on the available options. The "Flower" tile is suitable for any other flowers.

A tile is considered unblocked if no other tile is lying on top of it and the left or right side is free. If you click on any tile, it turns green - it means that it is an unlocked tile and if there is a free tile of the same type, they can both be removed. If you click on any tile, it turns red - this tile is blocked either by another tile from above or to the left and right. The goal of playing any Mahjong is to remove all tiles from the board by removing two identical unblocked tiles step by step.
