Players will add '2 bet' before each game.
The first dealer is chosen randomly. Thereafter the dealer is the winner of the previous hand.
The dealer starts dealing in a counterclockwise direction.
The next player may CHOW the card or PICK from discard pile.You may only take a card from the discard pile if you are able to create a meld (a set or run) with it, and you are then obliged to expose the meld.
HOW TO WIN A GAME?
There are 3 ways of winning the game:
The player is able to use all of his or her cards in combinations, by connecting to opponents’ exposed card sets, or if the player gets rid of all his cards, then the player wins by Tongits.
Win by Deck runs out
If the Deck Runs Out of cards and no one has initiated a Draw or won by Tongits, the player who has least amount of points in there hands wins the game.
*** NOTE: If you have melds in your hand when someone calls a Draw, the melds do not count toward the points in your hand- only unmelded cards.
Win by Draw
If you think you have fewer points in your hands than any of your opponents, you can call a Draw. This is a direct challenge of the opponents and will end the game whether you win or lose the draw.If another palyer initiates a draw, when it’s your turn, the options are FOLD or FIGHT .
HOW TO WIN THE JACKPOT?
