For those of you who have mastered Mah
Jongg, here's a new Solitaire challenge -- Shisen! The object, as in most solitaires, is to remove the similar pieces. The layout is a single layer, spread 18 tiles wide by 8 tiles deep. The catch? You can only remove tiles that no other tiles are between, or that can be connected with a line of no more than two bends.

Several different tile types & markings, and different backgrounds are also available for added variety.
