Mahjong Solitaire

Mahjong solitaire is a single player game that probably originated in Asia. Whilst simple in concept a good deal of strategy and memory is required to complete the layouts.

The objective of the game is to remove all the tiles from a layout in the least possible time. Layouts can vary in pattern, size and shape.  Tiles are removed in pairs and may only be removed if they are both ‘free’ and match one another.  Free tiles are ones that have no other piece touching the left, right or both sides and no tiles on top.

Whilst all deals generated by Mahjong are solvable you will need to remove pairs carefully to ensure you dont block the removal of remaining tiles.
