Objective

Align five or more same-colored tiles horizontally, vertically, or diagonally on the 9×9 board. On each turn, three new tiles are placed on the board at random positions. Earn as many points as possible before no more moves are available.

Moving

Click a tile to select it; click a vacant spot to move it there. A clear path (orthogonally connected empty space) must exist between the tile and the destination.

Scoring

Once at least five same-colored tiles form a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal line, they are cleared off the board, and you get 10+ points plus a free move.

Occasionally, a line of five might be put together automatically, which will be cleared without affecting your score.
