How to play Mahjongg.
Mahjongg is a Chinese board game similar to solitaire. The goal of the game is to remove all of the tiles by finding matching
pairs -- but there is a trick: only those tiles ''free'' on their left or right side can be matched/removed. I.e. any tile
with another on top of it or with tiles on both sides of it is not ''free''.
There are 42 different tile types. There are four of each of the first 34 types. The other eight types are special -- four
''flower'' tiles and four ''season'' tiles (shown below). Any of the four flower tiles matches another flower tile; any of the
four season tiles matches another season tile (a flower does not match a season).
Gameplay: Click a tile to select it; click it again to deselect. Click a second tile, and if both are free and match, they
are removed. The ''new game'' button begins a new (different, random) game. The ''restart'' button starts the current game
over. The ''undo'' button undoes the last move (click more than once to go back more than one move). The ''available moves''
button reveals the number of possible moves remaining. The ''hint'' button highlights one of the possible moves. The
''sound'' checkbox toggles sound on/off. The ''gray out locked tiles'' checkbox toggles on/off a setting to use a darker gray
color for tiles that are not free.
