Precedents

In cases where two or more players want to pick up the same discarded tile, the following rules can be applied.

The player who wants the tile for:

Mah Jongg with a Special Hand - will get the tile, if not;

Mah Jongg with a Pung - will get the tile, if not;

Mah Jongg with a Chow - will get the tile, if not;

Mah Jongg with a Double - will get the tile, if not;

Kong - will get the tile, if not;

Pung - will get the tile, if not;

Chow (but only if the tile is discarded by the player who is to the immediate left of the player who wants to pick up the tile).

In cases where this is still not decisive, the player sitting nearest to the player who discarded this tile in the playing direction, will get the tile.
