object in Mahjong Palace is to clear all the tiles on the board
by matching pairs of free tiles. In order for a tile to be free
there must be an empty space to the left or right and there can
be no tiles above it. Pairs must be identical, with the exception
of the flower and season tiles. Any flower tile can match any
other flower tile and any season tile can match any other season
