Who other than Hildibrand would still practice the art of Parley after the Calamity? The rules of the game are simple. Clicking on a tile will add its points and those of identical tiles in the same row or column to your total and remove the tiles. Tiles will then slide to fill in gaps in a snake-like fashion, and new tiles will be added from the top, passing the turn to the opponent. Whoever has the most points after a set number of turns wins. On occasions, special abilities can be triggered for effects such as reversing the flow of tiles, or shuffling the board.
