Free Mahjong Solitaire Game Instructions

Note: The instructions below are for the old Adobe Flash game.

Mahjong Tower is based on the classic Chinese game. The objective is to remove all the tiles from the board.

HOW TO PLAY.  Only "free" tiles can be selected. Free tiles are tiles that are not covered by any other tiles and have a free edge on the left or right side.

To remove a tile, find a matching tile that is also not obstructed. The tiles must be exactly identical, except if they belong to a Flower or Season family.

Any two unobstructed flower tiles can be removed together. These include the Plum, Chry, Bam, and Orc tiles. Similarly, any two season tiles can be removed together.

These include the Spr, Sum, Aut, and Win tiles.

Try to remove tile matches that free up the most tiles first. You can reshuffle the remaining tiles up to three times.

SELECT YOUR LAYOUT. This version of Mahjong allows you to play eight different tile layouts. A layout is the pattern in which the Mahjong tiles are stacked. Available tile layouts include:

  • Mini Tower - rectangular tower, 60 tiles, 4 levels
  • Integrated Circuit - shaped like a computer chip, 88 tiles, 2 levels
  • X-Building - x-shaped tower, 100 tiles, 10 levels
  • Crown - shaped like a king's crown, 100 tiles, 3 levels
  • Cross - shaped like a cross, 152 tiles, 7 levels
  • Butterfly - shaped like a butterfly, 168 tiles, 5 levels
  • Gate - shaped like a fence gate, 122 tiles, 2 levels

TIMER & SCORE. You can compete against yourself in this free mahjong tile game using the score and timer. Your score shows in the upper left corner. Trying to remove tiles that don't match lowers your score, so think carefully before you make a move.

HINTS. You are allowed up to 5 hints per game. To get a hint, click the light-bulb button at the bottom of the window. Each hint causes two matching tiles to flash briefly.

SHUFFLING TILES. At any point during the game you can shuffle the remaining Mahjong tiles up to 3 times. To shuffle the tiles, click the Shuffle button (two arrows) at the bottom of the window.

Shuffling is a good option if you get stuck at some point.

PAUSING. If you need to take a break but don't want to lose your place, click the Pause button in the lower right corner of the Mahjong Tower window. Click the Pause button again to continue your game.
