Cloud Game of the Week: KMahjongg on rollApp
Mahjong is a very popular board game throughout Eastern and South Eastern Asia, played with a set of 144 tiles based on Chinese characters and symbols (Dots, Bamboos, Characters, Winds, Dragons, Flowers, Seasons.) One of the legends of the Mahjong origin suggests that Confucius developed the game in about 500 BC.
In 2005 the World Mahjong Organization (WMO) was founded in Beijing, China, with the cooperation of Japan Mahjong Organizing Committee (JMOC) and European Mahjong Association (EMA).
Mahjong or Mahjongg solitaire, and so KMahjongg on rollApp (rollapp.com/app/kmahjongg), is a matching game that uses a set of mahjong tiles rather than cards.
The objective of KMahjongg is to remove all the tiles off the game board by locating each tile’s matching pair as quickly as possible.

How to Play
According to the game’s rules, you should carefully study the stack of tiles laid out on the game board and find two tiles matching exactly. When you have found such a pair use your mouse to select these. Once you have selected the right pair of tiles they will vanish off the game board, thus revealing the tiles previously located underneath, and opening the tiles adjacent to them. Find as many matches as possible to remove all the tiles from the game board.
- Only the ‘open’ tiles can be selected.
- Open’ tile is the tile which has one of the tile’s lateral sides open, meaning that no other tiles are located immediately next to it.
- Only when matching, open tiles can be removed from the game board.
- Matching tiles are those where the face pictograms match.
