Tile Game mini replaces the futility of tile solitaire - face it, you may never actually clear all the tiles - with the excitement of amassing a potentially huge score even with a stalemated game.
Each pair of removed tiles alters your score in a mathematical manner: remove "+5" to increase your score by five; remove "-9" to decrease your score by nine; remove "x3" to triple your score; and remove "/2" to cut your score in half. (Remove a set of four un-numbered tiles to earn one of two special scoring bonuses.)
Your challenge is no longer to minimize the number of tiles, but to maximize the number of points.
Note: Players who find the game pieces a little small can take advantage of the Mac OS "Zoom" feature. Enable this feature in the "Seeing" pane of the "Universal Access" System Preferences, then zoom in with "command option =" and zoom out with "command option -."
