The goal in Mahjong Gardens is to free the birds by removing all tiles from the board.

Tiles can be removed by matching pairs of identical tiles that are open. A tile is open when at least one of its sides (left or right) is free.

If you are stuck, you can ask for a hint or shuffle the board. Shuffling is only allowed 3 times in a game.
