Mahjiang Scoring

Since a score can become ridiculously large, a limit is usually applied. In England, the limit is usually 2000 points although tournament limits tend to be 1000 points.

Scoring can be complicated. If a player went Mahjiang with a special hand or a player was Calling on a special hand at Mahjiang, the scores in the Special Hand table apply. Otherwise, the value of each hand is calculated, bonus points are added and, if appropriate, any doubling then takes place. The value of each hand is calculated as per the following two tables:

Combination

Exposed
(declared on table)

Concealed

Minor tile Pong

2

4

Major tile Pong

4

8

Minor tile Kong

8

16

Major tile Kong

32

Pair of Dragons

Pair of prevailing Wind

Pair of player's own Wind

For going Mahjiang 10
For drawing the winning tile from the wall 2
For going Mahjiang with the only possible tile 2

Once the basic scores have been evaluated, each player's score is doubled for each item in the following table:

Pong or Kong of the player's own Wind (concealed or exposed)

Double

Pong or Kong of the prevailing Wind (concealed or exposed)Double
Pong or Kong of DragonsDouble

Finally, there are some additional doubles that apply to the hand that went Mahjiang only.

Rarely, a player may be Calling after his first discard. This is called an "Original Call". A Mahjiang made with those same 13 tiles plus a tile discarded or taken from the wall in subsequent turns. Double
Pongs/Kongs of any one suit and a pair. No Winds, Dragons or Chows.Double three times

The player who went Mahjiang is then paid by the other players the amount scored by his hand. This means that the player who gets Mahjiang always wins the round, even if other players have scored greater amounts. If East wins, the others pay double. If not, East pays double.

Each losing player pays any other losing player with a greater value hand, the difference between the two hands, with East paying and/or receiving double the difference.
