To play Mahjong Titans

  1. Open the Games folder by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking All Programs, clicking Games, and then clicking Games Explorer.

  2. Double-click Mahjong Titans.

    If Mahjong Titans is not available, you might need to turn on the Games feature. For more information about turning on the Games feature, see Where are my games?

    If you don't have a saved game, Mahjong Titans starts a new game. If you have a saved game, you can continue your previous game.

  3. Select the type of tile layout you want: Turtle, Dragon, Cat, Fortress, Crab, or Spider.

  4. Click to select the first tile you want to remove.

  5. Click to select the matching tile and both will disappear.

    You must match tiles exactly to remove them. Both the class and the number (or letter) of the tile must be the same. The classes are Ball, Bamboo, and Character. Each class has tiles numbered 1–9. In addition to the classes, there are special tiles on the board known as Winds, Flowers, Dragons, and Seasons. You must match wind tiles exactly, but any flower can match any other flower, and any season tile can match any other season tile and be removed.

    To remove two tiles, each of them must be free. That is, if the tile can slide free of the pile without bumping into other tiles, it is free. The game will tell you when a tile is not free.

Tips

  • Use Undo to go back. If you want to erase a move, click the Game menu, and then click Undo, and you will lose two points. You can do this as many times as you want. The only penalty is losing points.

  • Take advantage of hints. At any time, click the Game menu, and then click Hint, and two matching tiles will flash. Or, when you select a tile, you can right-click it, and if a matching tile is free, it will flash.

  • Try for combination bonuses. Depending on how you take tiles off the board, your score can increase dramatically. If you get a matched pair of one class and your next pair is of the same class, you get a bonus. If the next pair is the same number and the same class, the bonus is bigger. If your second pair after that is of the same class again, your bonus is even bigger. You also get bonuses for clearing both pairs of flower or season tiles in a row.
