  • Game Controls
    • Desktop

    • Open stones
      • A stone (or tile) is considered open if there is no tile directly on top of it & at least one of its left or right sides is open.
        • Only open tiles can be matched.
        • Tiles which are open turn a golden color when selected.
        • You can’t select tiles which are not open.
      • Identical tile matching
        • In most cases you can only match identical open tiles.
        • This game has 2 exceptions to the identical rule of thumb:
          • Open flower tiles can be matched with any other open flower tiles.
          • Open season tiles can be matches with any other open season tiles.
      • When no matches remain the game is over.
        • Conversely, this means that if the game has not ended you know there is at least 1 open match remaining.
      • Open tiles have golden background colors and borders when you select them.
        • If you chose the wrong tile then selecting any other non-matching tile will deselect the prior tile.
        • Some tiles from taller stacks can obscure part of tiles on shorter stacks. If you can’t find a match it might be because part of the tile is obfuscated.
          • Generally it is best to go for the widest rows and tallest columns first to open up the playing field.
          • The centerline outer tiles are the most important tiles to get rid of early as they block two rows of the widest width.
          • Then it makes sense to start working down the layers of stones in the center of the board.
      • When matching tiles it can be helpful to cue off a particular aspect like a color, having dots or numbers, etc. … so that you can quickly scan the board for matches.
        • If you are uncertain if a tile is open click on it to try to select it. If it does not turn golden that means it is not open.
    • Levels & scoring
      • This game only has a single level, which you can play on easy or hard mode.
      • The default mode is hard (with 144 tiles making 72 tile pairs) & the easy mode (with 32 tiles & 16 tile pairs) is a smaller board accessible by clicking on the For Kids button.
      • This game does not have a timer, points, tile reshuffles, or match hints.
      • You either clear all the tiles & beat the game, or leave tiles and don’t because you can’t make any more moves.
  • Target Audience
    • The game is suited for players who like Mahjong Solitaire tile matching games.
      • The simplicity of this game with there being no timer or points makes it relaxing.
      • The smaller board on the For Kids mode makes this a nice introduction to the game for younger children.
    • The game has no adult themed content.
