ID68-The Higher the Value, the Harder the Hand

Question: Why do the Singles & Pairs hands have such a high value?

Answer: Jokerless hands under the Singles and Pairs section of the card have the highest values for obvious reasons being:

  • You must complete the hand through your own picking
  • You cannot use Jokers
  • You cannot call a tile for exposure unless it is your last tile which completes a hand for Mah Jongg.
