Mahjong Titans Scoring

I have been figuring out how to get more points in Mahjong Titans. It’s the computer game I told you about in one of my previous posts. I got hooked to it a few weeks ago, and stopped playing last week. Yet, yesterday morning, I decided to play again, to improve my statistics.

According to the help section, the way you can improve your score in this game is to get pairs from the same class, one after the other. I was doing this before but I didn’t think my score got better.

However, I realized that the way I could get more bonus points is that I should try to find all the pairs I could find in the same class until I could not find any pair of that class exposed, then that’s the time I should start finding pairs from another class until I could not find any pair again. This cycle will go on until I could find all the pairs in the board.

There are some instances though that I would not eliminate all pairs especially if there are still a lot of tiles of the same class not exposed. I would just eliminate those tiles I need to eliminate first (because the tile it hides is the one I need the most. It could be a match to another tile at the very far side of the layout).

After doing this strategy, I noticed how fast I could solve most of the puzzles, and yes, my score got better. (Though there are still a lot I could not win.) So far my highest score is 769 points in the cat layout. I am still struggling in the Dragon layout, but my scores in Spider and Fortress aren’t that bad. While in winning percentages, my numbers in Spider and Fortress layouts aren’t that good compare to how I am doing in Crab layout which has 89% winning percentage. Nice eh?

Anyway, here are the screenshots of my scores (so far). (Note: The name on the title bar on the screenshot says Chris though, because the Vista laptop I am using is not mine. But I am the only one playing Mahjong Titans in this laptop. )

    I was very proud of myself with my 1277 score on Turtle, until I saw those 1600+ scores… Gonna have to work on it some more it seems :)

    I only play turtle so far and have a high score of 1487, with a winning percentage that’s been stuck forever at 38%. I’ve played over 700 games… embarrassing!
    For high scores I agree with others… try to leave as many of the winds as possible to the very end (to “cheat” I’ve recently realized you can reset the game over and over until you get a favourable layout with the winds burried in the lower layers and near the middle of the gameboard). I also agree that getting all 4 of the same tiles consecutively helps and that removing tiles of the same kind consecutively helps with a high score… here’s something else you can try that helps increase your score; try your best to clear out as many “rows” as you can in ONLY 1 direction E.g. if you start clearing out the very top row from the top right hand corner you will score more points if you go completely from right to left the entire way… clearing from both sides doesn’t score as high – try it out. I’m going to try the suggestion I read from someone of getting all of the flowers and seasons consecutively, saving them for as late in the game as possible to see if that helps. Thanks for posting this Mahjong topic, Reah!

    While my high score is not very impressive, 898, I have won 277 games in a row without a loss on turtle. I wonder how this ranks?
