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.

Try playing on Hard and using the puzzles "S or 5" and "Thick Spiral". Those are pretty easy to get your 5X combo.

It's really not that hard. Like Seska said, it's generally easiest to wait until you've gotten rid of many of the tiles. Then you can easily see all the quick matches.
It really isn't even that hard to quickly go through and get 15 in a row, which counts as three "5 combos" I'm not especially talented and I do that frequently in the last quarter or third of the game. It can be frustrating, yes, because if you pause at all, it stops the streak. But really, once you get the hang of it, it's very do-able.

I think you are still confusing the different types of combos. Animal combos and 5-times combos are different challenges. You can make 5 "regular" matches in a row to make a 5-times combo but you can't pause between those matches.

Any match will count toward the 5-times combo. The point of a 5-times combo is to do them quickly without any pause between the matches, not that they be any particular tiles. You don't have to make animal combos (where you match all 4 tiles of an animal) or safari matches (two halves of an animal). In fact, I would avoid safari matches since they can break a streak with the time the graphic takes.

An example 5-times combo could be:

Polar Bear - Polar Bear
Buffalo - Buffalo
Whale - Whale
Polar Bear - Polar Bear
Wolf - Wolf

You can't pause at all between those 5 matches but you can stop after you've finished those 5 in order to plan out your next 5 matches.

I usually clear out half of the board in order to open up the middle before I even start to look for 5 sets of tiles that are open so that I can do a 5-times combo with them.

You have to at least make one 5 times combo which means making five matches in a row without pause or hesitation.

You do not have to match multiple pairs of the same animal in order to get a five times combo.

If you pause after clicking three animal pairs that means the streak is broken and you will not get credit for a five times combo.

You can break the streak after making a five times combo and still get credit.

Sometimes clearing out a lot of tiles and waiting until later in the game will provide an opportunity to make a five times combo.

Mahjong Safari • 5 times combos

By Vande589 » August 22nd, 2017, 1:49 am

Hi...I am hoping that someone will see this and help me. I am playing a badge that says make 66 5times combos in 2 weeks
10 times counts 15 times counts etc etc. My question is do you need to do all of these one directly in front of the other, or just during the time it takes to play the game....where after you get a combo and then just do a couple of regular matches and then another combo? I played a game and during the game I was able to get 4 or 5 combos which was confirmed on the screen while I was playing but after the game was done I looked in the chat section to see how many I had and nothing was there. I also went and looked in the badge section where it shows what badges you are working on and nothing showed there either. Would someone please explain this to me. Thank you

You're welcome.

Please try this suggestion again. It always works for me so try it and see if it helps:

Leave the page, go back to your home page, and try the game again.

Repeat the process if the game still doesn't load and see if the game loads on the third try.

Yes, yes and yes, Jada. Too many things (parts and pieces) just are not working on Pogo.
As you can see by the posts.

The past week has been frustrating and irritating.
Using current FF, Win 10 up to date, all is cleaned...the game pages load quick....the game boards don't load at all, or take more than 20 minutes. I don't understand what is happening, and I'm tired of it. No longer fun.
