How to play Mahjong - game rules
The game goal is to gather the highest score by removing pairs of tiles with identical symbols. You can remove only those tiles, that are not blocked, i.e. no other tile is placed directly above, to the right or to the left of them. The game ends when all tiles have been removed.
At the top of the screen, there are two icons: "Gamechip" which gives you access to the payment section and "Lifebuoy" redirecting to the help section.
Below you can find a game variant selection menu. You can either play alone or play with others.
The middle part of the window is occupied by the information panel with details of your XP level, owned gamechips, achievement collection, friend list and last winners. Below you can also find Add Gamechips option and open Room List.
Additionally, in the lowermost portion of the screen you can see the information about number of players online and your current account balance.
In the top left corner you can find lifebuoy symbol, which takes you to help section when clicked. The Gamechip symbol allows for quick purchase of additional Gamechips. Top-right corner is where additional settings are displayed. There you can find buttons for taking screenshot, visual customisation of tiles, chat and audio preferences, and returning to lobby.
Central area of the window is a table filled with tiles, and it is where the proper game takes place.
Below the table there are three modules. The left one contains information about your score, XP level as well as available shuffles and hints. By clicking buttons in the middle module you can use available hints and shuffles or finnish the game. The right module provides information about top scores, both yours and other players.
Bottom part of the screen consists of chat and, depending on chosen table settings, also players information, friends list and top scores.
In play alone variant you have 10 hints and 5 shuffles at your disposal. If it is not sufficient, you can alway buy additional coupons.
Each extra coupon gives 4 hints or 2 shuffles and costs 1000 Gamechips. Buying extra coupons prevents your score from being submitted to the top score table. Each 5000 points collected in a single game grants you +1XP.

The layout of game window is very similar to the one in Play alone variant. The only differnce is three-moduled panel below the table has its functionality changed a bit. The left module now informs about your position in ranking, while the right one contains statistics of the leading player.
First coupon is always free, while each next costs 1000 Gamechips in this variant. The amount of XP depends on which place you reached as well as on number of competitors.
