ID178-Pay(s) for Table

Question: What situations during the game would cause a player to pay for the entire table?

Answer: Four specific circumstances exist in the game that result in a player having to pay for the entire table:

  1. When the wrong wall is pushed out during play, and a player declares Mah Jongg, the one who pushed their wall out of sequence pays for the table.
  2. If a player mistakenly picks from the wrong end of the wall, discards a tile, and another player declares Mah Jongg on that discard, the player who picked from the wrong end is responsible for paying for the table.
  3. In the event a player picks out of turn, makes a discard, and that discard leads to another player declaring Mah Jongg, the player who picked out of turn is responsible for paying for the table.
  4. If a misnamed tile is needed for Mah Jongg, the player is entitled to the win and the player who misnamed the tile is responsible for paying for the table.
