Mahjong is a game that is a favorite pastime in China, Japan, and in Buddhist communities across Asia and beyond. In Chinese culture, inviting a person to play Mahjong is an indication of friendliness.

The goal of Buddha Mahjong is to remove all 66 tiles from the board by pairing identical tiles. Match pairs of images at the ends of the left and right rows to remove tiles from the board. Click on each tile in the pair to remove them. The game is finished when either the layout is empty or there are no exposed pairs remaining.

Good luck!
