TANTRIX Daily Match
Playing Daily Match

There is only one rule - all colours must match.

Play by dragging tiles onto the Match board. Colours which do not match will be highlighted in purple. Impossible spaces are marked by a purple circle.

Please enter your name under "Tools" before starting. You are allowed to ask for one hint per puzzle, but only if you complete all three levels without a hint, will your name and time be recorded on the "Top Times" list.

Each puzzle has one unique solution. A new sequence of 3 puzzles is posted daily. Some days are harder than others, so good luck!

How to Start Playing

You need to have Java installed on your PC to play Match. If it is not installed on your PC yet, please click here to find out more about how to get it. When you are done, come back to this page and click the "Play Match Now" link again. You will only have to install Java once.

Instructions for Mac Users

Daily Match requires Java 1.6. Unfortunately Java 1.6 will only run on Mac OS 10.5.2 or later. You can follow the steps below to install the correct upgrades. If your current version of Mac is too early the download may incur a charge.

  1. Check which version you have running by clicking on the Apple symbol in the top left corner and selecting 'About'
  2. If you are running something earlier than Mac OS 10.5.2 then you will need to click here and upgrade.
  3. Then to upgrade your Java you need to click here and download the latest version.

Creating a Shortcut

The Match installation should automatically create a shortcut on your desktop for easy future access. If this feature does not work for you for some reason, then you can follow the instructions below to add it manually.

To create a shortcut for "Daily Match" (Windows) on your desktop:
  1. Go to your desktop.
  2. Right click on the desktop.
  3. Select New >> Shortcut.
  4. Type http://www.tantrix.com/Match/launch.jnlp into the box and click Next.
  5. Type "Daily Match" into the box and click Finish.

Emptying the Java cache

The Daily Match software is updated regularly. To make sure you have access to the latest version, we recommend you clear out your old versions of Daily Match from your java cache occasionally.

Here is how to do it:
  1. Select Start/Control panel/Java/General tab
  2. Under (Temporary internet files) click View
  3. Select all Daily Match items and press the red X (remove) button
  4. Press OK to close the java control panel box
