Mahjong Rules - Win More Often!

Winning Mahjong

A player wins the round by creating a standard mahjong hand this is known as creating a Mahjong.

A Mahjong consists of a number of melds, depending on the number of tiles in play, and a pair. The number of melds required is 4 in 13-tile and 5 in 16-tile variations of Mahjong.

Taking Turns and Passing Round
If the dealer wins the game they they stay and play the dealer in the next round.

If the dealer loses then the player to the dealers right will become the new dealer for the next round. The player's wind then becomes the Game Wind.

After each player has had a go at being the dealer and the wind has returned to the East then a round is complete and the Prevailing Wind will change. A complete game of mahjong finished after 4 rounds have been played. This is when the North Prevailing Wind round is over.
