ID162-Tips When Playing in Tournaments

< All Topics

Here are some essential tips to keep in mind when participating in a Mah Jongg tournament:

  • Maintain the pace of the game. Time is limited. Unfinished games will result in zero points.
  • Prioritize finishing the game. A wall game worth 10 points is better than an unfinished game.
  • Avoid discarding the winning tile to prevent penalty points.
  • Aim for higher-valued hands to maximize your score.
  • When absolutely certain, consider declaring other players’ hands dead.
  • Familiarize yourself with the tournament rules. Keep in mind that each Tournament Director may have their own set of rules.
