Beginning the Game of Mahjong Titans
To start the game of Mahjong Titans you must click on the start button. Select All Programs and then select Games. Click on Games Explorer and then double click on Mahjong Titans. If you have a previously saved game you can continue playing that game, otherwise a new game will begin. You will then be able to select the tile layout from the six options listed above.
Playing the Game of Mahjong Titans
Once you have selected a tile layout, the tiles will appear on your screen. Tiles are arranged in a 3D format. Select an available tile by clicking on it and then select a matching tile to remove them from the screen. In order to be able to select a tile, the tile must be free on one side. Any tile that has a tile blocking it on both sides will not be free to select.
Tiles must be identical, in most cases, in order to be matched. There are classes of tiles – characters, balls and bamboos and each class of tiles has tiles numbered 1 through 9. Both the class and the number must match in order for the tile to match. There are also unique tiles in Mahjong Titans. There are winds which must match exactly, dragons which must match exactly, flowers which can match any other flower and seasons which can match any season.
