How to Play
Select matching tiles and repeat the process until you can no longer make any pairs or the playing field has been cleared.
Starting the Game
When you load this page a game automatically starts along with a game timer. The game does not have a pause button, so if you are playing for time you can restart the game when you configure it using the options you wish to use.
On the right side of the playing field there is an options button. When you click it an options menu overlay appears at the center of the screen. You can click on one of four map types and select on of three styles then click close.
Left click on a tile to select it. If you are able to select a tile it will appear blue.
Click on another matching tile which is selectable to remove them from the playing field.
Use your finger like a mouse..
The right side of the game offers a variety of features.
It first tells you how many remaining pairs there are on the current board which you can select.
Next it shows how long the current game has lasted.
Underneath this there are 4 buttons:
New game – starts a new game
Shuffle – shuffles the existing tile placements without starting the game over (e.g. the same tile positions will have tiles but which tiles are located where changes)
Undo – undo your most recent move (this does not undo shuffles but can restore prior pieces you removed & you can repeatedly click it to undo multiple steps)
Options – select the board configuration and piece type
In most cases it makes sense to start with the highest pieces & work your way down.
You generally want to remove whatever pieces help expose the maximum number of pieces under them & limit how many layers of depth remain.
If you play the heart board configuration it is typically better to try to remove the pieces from the center heart faster than the pieces near the outer bottom edges as those isolated bottom edge pieces are easier to remove.
This game allows you to select pieces on the left or right column of layer, but does not allow you to select tiles from the middle of a row if there are tiles on either side of it.
This means you generally can not in most cases select two consecutive tiles across a single row to match as a pair unless those tiles are on different elevations.
If there are pieces you can remove and you are selecting between choosing a top or bottom edge of a column and a piece in the middle of a column it is usually better to pick the pieces off the top and bottom edges first.
This game is wildly popular in China with Chinese scholar & essayist Hu Shi complaining that the game had become China’s “national pastime” back in 1927.
This online game is a relaxing single player game, though the game is often played competitively offline between players & in that competitive context that version of the game is similar to gin rummy.
The game is fun for all age groups from young child to an elderly person keeping their mind active and everyone else in between. 🙂
The timer allows players to create a game within a game if they are trying to beat their best time, while there being no time limit means the game can be fun even for those looking for a relaxing break.
Offering 3 different tile types in 4 different board configurations means the game can look aesthetically pleasing and be enjoyable to just about anyone.
The game offers a convenient undo button which allows you to backtrack and undo any mistakes.
