ID152-Misnamed Joker for Mahj Jongg

< All Topics

Question: What happens if someone discards a joker, misnames it a flower and a player calls the flower for Mah Jongg. Is the Mah Jongg legit?

Answer: If a joker is misnamed, the game stops and the player who misnamed the joker pays for the table. This is the only fair thing to do, since everyone now knows that player needs a flower and no one would ever throw one.
