    Default Arcade Mahjong: Please Explain

    How do you know which tiles can be matched with other? I don't quite get why some of them go and some don't work. I get that you have to match the "rows" but what does that mean?!

    I haven't played mahjong for several time, but, of what I remember, the tiles have to have at least two free sides.

    She's referring to the MahJong Connect in the arcade here, which is quite different than standard MahJong Solitaire.

    Yeah, it took me a bit to figure out what the legal matches rule was, too. If you watch the way the lines connect when you do get a match, you start to get the idea. It's something to the effect that the connecting line can't take more than two turns, iirc.

    Mahjong Connect? Well the tiles have to be identical. There's 3 ways you can match up the tiles.

    1. They are adjacent. (not diagonal)
    2. They are on an outside row or column together.
    3. You can draw a "line" between them through empty space using 2 or fewer right angles.

    I have no idea why/how the hints work. (They turn on and off in availability.)

    Good luck!
