Shisen-Sho

Shisen-Sho is a single-player-game similar to Mahjongg and uses the same set of tiles as Mahjongg.

Object

The object of the game is to remove all tiles from the field.

Rules

The aim of the game is to remove all tiles from the board. Only two matching tiles can be removed at a time. Two tiles can only be removed if they can be connected with a maximum of three connected lines. Lines can be horizontal or vertical, but not diagonal.

You don't have to draw the lines by yourself, the game does this for you. Just mark two matching tiles on the board, if they can be connected with a maximum of three lines, the lines will be drawn and the tiles are removed.

Remember that lines only may cross the empty border. If you are stuck, you can use the Hint feature to find two tiles which may be removed. Clicking a tile with the right mouse button will show you all corresponding tiles, no matter if they are removable at the moment or not.
