Mahjong Tips and Tricks

  • Before making your first move in Mahjong Solitaire, take a moment to familiarize yourself with the board layout. You will certainly find some good opening moves. Note the special Mahjong tiles (Seasons and Flowers) locations - these ones can be a great help.
  • Always try to match pairs which lead to opening up most new tiles. There are pairs which don't open anything new - it would be a good idea to hold them in reserve and match with another tiles.
  • If you see three identical tiles which are free to match - either choose a pair which opens up most new tiles or look for a quick ways to free the fourth one and match all 4.
  • If you see four identical and free tiles - you're in luck! Match those combinations immediately.
  • Matching tiles on long horizontal line edges should be your priority as leaving those long lines will cause problems very soon.
  • Tall stacks of tiles are another key priority in Mahjong Solitaire games - not only they are hard to take apart but they can also contain two identical tiles one udder another. If there are no such tiles outside the stack - you're out of luck.
  • Don't hesitate to use helpful TheMahjong.com features such as Undo and Hint.

Good luck with your mahjong!
