Most of the tile sets is made up of 144 tiles - there are 136 matching tiles
and 4 Flower tiles and 4 Season tiles. The object of the game is to remove
all of the tiles from the layout. Click on any 2 matching tiles to remove
them from the board. A tile can only be clicked if its left or right edge
is exposed and no tiles are covering any part of the tile. |
The actual tiles will vary depending on the tile set you have selected, but
each set maintains the same groups and relationships. Keep in mind that
flower and season tiles don't match exactly!
Just because two tiles have the same number on them doesn't
mean they will match. Work from the top down and outside in. Watch for
similar themes between tiles.
Use the tile preview window (if available) to help identify which tile you
have selected. It will help you to find its match. Click Undo (if available)
to take back a move you decide against. You can undo as many moves as you
The bonus timer (if available) is ticking off points as you play. Work
fast to clear the board to earn as many bonus points as you can.
