Mahjong Gardens is a free online mahjong game that has a lovely tale to tell. It assumes that there are birds which are trapped under the pile of tiles, and you should clear all of them and free the birds. In mahjong, you remove tiles from a formation, by clicking on any two that have a similar symbol. This may sound like a walk in the park, but some of the mahjong games around do not give you very many matches. It may even get to a point where you do not have any other moves; when you have no more moves, you will be allowed to shuffle the pile so as to get new tiles to come out. Shuffling will not change the formation, and it will remain just like you left it. You will only have 3 chances for reshuffling and then the opportunity goes away. You may also overlook shuffling the tiles and simply start all over again with a new formation. The game has a great interface where you can even set the position of the game using arrows on the bottom left hand corner. The symbols of the tiles are great and include birds, warriors and dragons; the symbols also have bamboos, circles and characters. You should maintain a great record by working on the tiles very fast to beat the clock. The clock will determine how many points you will get when you finish the level. For every tile that you remove, two birds fly out, giving you the impression that you are actually freeing them. This is a game that you will enjoy, and a lot of thought has gone into the design just to make sure that you have a great time. Get some refreshments and keep your eyes peeled, because you have some bird-freeing to do.
