|Hong Kong New Style:||Overview||Gameplay||Scoring||Penalties & Errors||Resources|
Because HKNS mahjong is also a gambling game, no initial points are specified. If you are playing casually everyone can start arbitrarily with 500 points.
The hand must contain 14 tiles and be composed of four sets and a pair (with the exception of special limit hands). If two players call mahjong for the same discard, the player sitting closest to the discarder in turn order is given the tile. An exception to this is when a player completes an open Thirteen Orphans hand the turn order does not matter. A minimum of 5 fan is needed before calling mahjong. When declaring a win on a discard the player must display his first and before adding the discarded tile. In case of a self-drawn win, the drawn tile is displayed first followed by his hand.
If the winner wins by self-draw, then all other players pay him however much his hand is worth. For example, if the winner has a hand worth 3 fan (16 points), then the three other players will pay him 16 points.
If the winner wins by discard, the player who discarded the winning tile (known as the discarder) is penalized. One common method of penalizing the discarder is forcing the discarder to pay the full value of the winning hand, while the other two players only pay half. Alternatively, the discarder must pay one or two times the value of the winning hand, while the other players pay nothing. Make sure your mahjong group agrees on a method of payment before starting a game.
- Win by a discarded tile: Discarder pays winner full score.
- Win by a discarded tile: Discarder pays winner double the full score.
- Win by a discarded tile: Discarder pays winner full score and the other players half the winner's score.
- Win by self-drawn tile: All player's pay the full value of the winner's hand.
