Mahjongg Squared

Attention Swag Nation gamers, puzzle fans, and mahj players: This is a Wednesday Game Challenge right up your alley and the game will only be available for a limited time so today is the day to try Mahjongg Dimensions and try your hand at 100 Swag Bucks. 9/27 Update: This game is no longer available but could return in the future.

If you’ve played other Mahjongg or matching tile type games like Mahjong Solitaire or Jolly Jong Journey, this will be pretty familiar to you. You can only clock and match tiles that have two free adjacent sides. What you might not be used to is that Mahjongg Dimensions, you start out with all the tiles in a three dimensional shape that you can rotate and the tiles are cubes. This means that in order to meet the requirements of having two free adjacent sides, you will want to start with corner pieces. Select one tile with two free sides like a corner piece and then select another with a matching shape on the front in order to remove them both and add to your score. To rotate the tiles, you can click on the arrows on the screen or use the arrow keys on your keyboard.  If you still can’t find any matches, you can reshuffle the tiles once per level.

You can earn several bonuses for how you play. One bonus is for the amount of time you have left once you’ve solved the puzzle. Another is for the speed with which you make matches. Make two matches within 3 seconds of each other and you’ll get a Speed Match Bonus. Match several tiles with the same shape or image on it and you’ll get a Multimatch Combo bonus.

Think you can beat my score? If you can, it just might earn you 100 Swag Bucks. If you manage to beat my score, just tweet a screenshot of it @Swagbucks with your Swag Name and the hashtag #sbgames by 11:59 PM PT. Three of you will be selected at random to win 100 Swag Bucks. Winners will be announced on Twitter tomorrow.
