Match Tiles via Connecting Line
In the Mahjong Safari puzzle game, your goal is to match tiles with a connecting line that has two or fewer turns. The farther apart the tiles, the higher your score. For the highest possible score, create combos by matching tiles quickly one after another.

Look for Special Tiles
  • Four Stars - There are four, special Star tiles in each puzzle game. Match those to earn one of the three power ups available in Mahjong Safari.
  • Mini-Animals - These are the only tiles that don't have identical matches. Match the two halves of the same animal to earn a mini-animal on the left side of the screen. Collect ten and you win a spin.

3 Unique Power Ups to Earn
  • Shuffle Power Up - The Shuffle Power Up allows you to mix up all the tiles when you get stuck.
  • Long Line Power Up - The Long Line Power Up allows you to match two tiles with more than two turns.
  • Hint Power Up - Earn the Hint Power Up and get a hint about an available match.

Track Your Progress
In the lower left part of the screen, you will notice two numbers:
  • Tiles
  • Available Matches
These are useful to notice throughout the game so you can track your progress and know how many matches are available.

There are lots of ways to earn tokens in Mahjong Safari! Here are some tips to keep in mind:

The higher your Score, the more tokens you earn in this puzzle game. For every 100 points, you earn 1 token. Get a high score by matching tiles that are long distances away, and by making long Combos.

The higher your Score, the more tokens you earn. For every 100 points, you earn 1 token.

100 Points
=
1 Token


At the end of each successful puzzle game, you get a game complete bonus. Harder difficulties award more tokens since they take longer to complete.

If you complete a game and still have some powerups left over, you'll earn 10 bonus tokens per powerup.

At the end of a successful game that you completed quickly, you earn a Time Bonus.

During the puzzle game, if you make an animal-specific combo, you'll earn an extra 30 tokens per animal combo. For instance, match two pandas, then quickly match two pandas again, and you'll earn a Panda combo.

If you complete a safari by collecting 10-mini animals, you'll get a bonus of 100 tokens (and Pogo will give 100 tokens to someone else in the room.) Those tokens are awarded instantly, not at the end of the game! You will also win a spin, which may award some tokens.

If you're playing in a room with other people, when they complete a safari, you will once in a while get a bonus gift of 100 tokens for their efforts! Those tokens are awarded instantly, not at the end of the game! In most cases, only active players will receive gifts, so staying in a room without playing won't earn you tokens.

Are you playing on Easy difficulty level?

Some puzzles there are easy to complete in under two minutes.

After you find a puzzle you are able to complete in under two minutes, keep clicking "New Game" until that puzzle shows up again.

Good luck!

Mahjong Safari • Wild Hearts - Hard / Badge Magic Exclusive Challenge

By Arm3258 » February 17th, 2018, 4:23 am

Am I the only person having trouble completing the game in under 2 minutes :cry: I had no problem getting the Wild Hearts - Easy Badge since the target was 30 games in under 4 minutes. The Wild Hearts - Medium with a target of 30 games in under 3 minutes was more of a challenge, but I stuck with it and finally got it done. Unfortunately, the Wild Hearts - Hard was one of the first challenges I got when I paid my 14 gems and spun the wheel. I left it until the end, but, now I have completed all the other February Badge Magic Challenges so am stuck with this one. I wish I could just ignore it, except it is in my Mix-N-Match badge album and is preventing me from completing that album. The target for this badge seems unreasonable...30 games in under 2 minutes. I would even be happy with 2 1/2 minutes. After trying and trying, I finally got one in 1 minute and 59 seconds. Hurray, me! The problem here is that you can't take any time to think between moves and, being an oldster, I need the think time. The power-ups help some, but, that blasted clock keeps ticking. Help!! Any suggestions?

:lol: There is light at the end of the tunnel! I noticed that I had my difficulty set on HARD.....my BAD! :roll: Switched it to EASY....big difference :D I'm just surprised I was able to get the medium and easy while on hard. :o

Mahjong Safari • Re: 5x Combo

By Mod_Jada » February 17th, 2018, 3:40 am

You will get a 5x combo by matching 5 pairs of animals without pausing between matches.

Some players find it best to clear away most of the board first and then plan their moves.

Mahjong Safari • Re: 100 Bonus Tokens

By Mod_Aby » February 10th, 2018, 11:29 pm

If you complete a safari by collecting 10-mini animals, you'll get a bonus of 100 tokens (and POGO, not you, will award 100 tokens to someone else in the room.) Those tokens are awarded instantly, not at the end of the game! Likewise, when someone else who is playing in the room collects 10 mini animals, they will get a bonus themselves and POGO will award 100 tokens to someone else it the room. That may be you or it may be someone else that gets those 100 tokens. The more players in the room the more tokens will be awarded to players from Pogo.

You need to match a pair of the same animal and then quickly match another pair of that same animal - meaning 4 tiles of the same animal.

Please see Mod_Aby's post a few posts above this one.

I got no notice that I had completed the challenge successfully for either game, and the badge does not show in the "My Profile - Badges" list. I play this game most every day and enjoy it very much...just wish it would give credit where credit is due. Just my two cents added to the already existing chorus...

Guess the third time is indeed the charm...I played a third game, matched two polar bears then two more polar bears with no delay between. Got the notice telling me that I won the challenge, and it is showing up on the home page and in the list of badges under My Profile.
Daily Challenge do not award "Badges". You could have seen a green check mark on it on the Home Page under Daily Challenges. But, you couldn't possibly be seeing a Badge under your Profile. Were you working on a Badge Challenge also?

I play this a lot for my personal challenges and have found that Thick Spiral and S or 5 are the best because the animals are in straight rows and easier to connect. Also, get rid of all the "ones of a kind" if you can because that often opens up a way to get to the pairs of animals.
