how do I play mahjong alone?

Hi there!
I am living in china and got a mahjong game as a present. I will play it with others, of course. But I also enjoy the beautiful set of stones alone (its a beautiful set). How do I arrange the stones when I start?

Thx, Rob

    you can play solitaire mahjong. we used to play this when we were young because we couldn’t understand the real mahjong yet.
    the game is also called turtle. it a sort of matching game using the tiles.
    i googled it and found a website with all the info.
    Mahjong solitaire, also known as Shanghai solitaire, electronic or computerized mahjong, MahJong solitaire, solitaire Mahjong and, erroneously, as mahjong, is a solitaire matching game that uses a set of Mahjong tiles rather than cards. The 144 tiles are arranged in a special four-layer grid with their faces upwards. A tile that can be moved left or right without disturbing other tiles is said to be exposed. Exposed pairs of identical tiles (Flower tiles in the same group being considered identical) are removed from the grid one at a time, gradually exposing the lower layers to play. The aim of the game is to clear the grid by pairing up all the tiles. The game is finished when either the grid is empty, or there are no exposed pairs remaining.

    goodluck and enjoy your pretty tiles
