ID168-East Picks Before Discarding
Question: What happens when the game begins and East picks a tile from the wall prior to discarding and now has 15 tiles in their rack?
- If East hasn’t yet discarded the mistakenly picked tile from the wall, they may return it and then proceed to discard.
- On the contrary, if East picks an erroneous tile from the wall and discards it, their hand should be declared dead as a result of having too many tiles in their hand.
