Scoring variations

Payments to winner – Korean scheme

This payoff scheme is used in Korean Style rule preset. If the winning tile is self-drawn, each loser pays according to the winner's final score. If the winning tile is a discard, only the discarder pays the winner's final score (other losers pay nothing).

Note that this scheme only simulates the Korean payoff scheme, which actually uses a system where a certain amount of points (faans) are added to the winner's final score only at the time of payments, depending on the way of going out. E.g., in a so called 1-5-10 scheme the payments are determined as follows (here it is assumed that the winner's final score is 3 points in all cases):

Note: "1" in the 1-5-10 scheme refers to base unit used in the payments (e.g., "2-5-10" means that all payments are doubled once). This can be supported in Four Winds by specifying a customized payment table.
  East Discarder Others Total
East self-drawn 1 3
Non-East self-drawn 1 1 3
East on discard 2 0 2
Non-East on East's discard 2 0 2
Non-East on Non-East's discard 0 2 0 2
