Scoring variations

Paying method – Between all players

In other than Japanese and Chinese Mah Jong, all players are paid. The winner receives from all losers the sum determined by the value of his hand (possibly doubled, if the East pays and receives doubles). The losers pay each other according to the difference of their final scores. When this paying method  is used, it may well be that a loser – if he has an excellent hand – gains more points than a winner. If you like to collect limit hands or aesthetically appealing tile combinations, this is your version of the game!

To enable paying between all players:
  1. Choose Preferences on the File menu.
  2. Choose a customized rule preset from the Rule presets list.
  3. Choose Payments under the Scoring section in the category tree of the Preferences dialog box.
  4. From the Pay method drop-down list, choose Between All Players .
