Chinese Official Scoring Rules

The Chinese Official Scoring is the standardized ruleset that is maintained by World Mahjong Association and is used in the World Mahjong Championship. It provides a large array of different scoring rules that gives players flexibility in gameplay to emphasize skill and strategy.

There are no required Pungs or Chows in order for a hand to be considered valid. Instead, any combination of 4 triples and a pair can be considered winning, if it scores at least 8 points. There are also a set of specialty hands that do not form 4 triples and a pair and are still valid.

New to the game? Here's how to play.

Transferring Points

If a player wins, all players must automatically give 8 points to the winner. Additional points equal to the value of the winning hand must be given by:

  • The player who discarded the winning tile if the winner won off their discard.
  • All players if the winner won by self-draw.

  • e.g. Player 1 wins a hand worth 12 points by a discard from Player 2.
    • Player 1 gains 8×3 + 12 = 36 points
    • Player 2 loses 8 + 12 = 20 points
    • Player 3 loses 8 points
    • Player 4 loses 8 points
  • e.g. Player 1 wins a hand worth 12 points by self-draw.
    • Player 1 gains 8×3 + 12×3 = 60 points
    • Player 2 loses 8 + 12 = 20 points
    • Player 3 loses 8 + 12 = 20 points
    • Player 4 loses 8 + 12 = 20 points

General Scoring Principles

When scoring, we follow 5 main principles:

  1. The Non-Repeat Principle: When a scoring rule is implied or included by another, it is not scored.
    • e.g. If you have a hand of All Even Pungs, you receive the points for All Even Pungs but not the points for having All Pungs.

  2. The Non-Separation Principle: Once pieces are arranged into groups to apply a scoring rule, it cannot be re-arranged into different groups to apply different scoring rules.
    • e.g. If you have 3 copies of Bamboo 1,2,3, it arranged into 3 Chows of Bamboo 1,2,3, or a Pung of Bamboo 1, a Pung of Bamboo 2 and a Pung of Bamboo 3. However, you must pick one arrangement or another. You cannot have both the points for having a Pure Triple Chow and the points for having Pure Shifted Pungs.

      3 of Bamboo Mahjong suit tile, face up.
  3. The Non-Identical Principle: One triple cannot be used to score the same scoring rule twice.
    • e.g. If you have a Chow of Circle 1,2,3, Chow of Circle 4,5,6 and two Chows of Circle 7,8,9, you can only receive the points for having a Pure Straight once. You cannot use the second Chow of Circle 7,8,9 to make a second Pure Straight with the same 1,2,3 and 4,5,6 Chows.

  4. The Freedom to Choose: This is related to principle 2, which is that a player gets to choose how groups are formed to maximize their points.
    • When playing on PlayMahjong.io, the winning player automatically gets the maximum possible scoring for their hand.
  5. Exclusionary Rule: Players can use groups multiple times to receive points from different scoring rules. However, each set can only be used twice.
    • e.g. If you have Mixed Shifted Chows with a duplicate Chow, you receive the 6 points for the Mixed Shifted Chows along with another point for having a Pure Double Chow.

    • Rules such as All Honors, All Pungs, All Chows, etc. do not use any groups as they limit the possible groups instead. (e.g. All Honors is a hand with no suits. All Pungs is a hand with no Chows.)
    • This a controversial "principle" as it is extremely confusing and unintuitive. The limitation of using each group a certain number of times only applies in niche situations with Chows that change the number of points by 1 or 2. Some other sources online quote a different interpretation of the exclusionary rule that prevents used groups from being combined with other used groups, even if they have both only been used once. This would mean that the order in which you declare scoring rules affects the final scoring. Since this is extremely confusing and doesn't affect gameplay in 99.99% of cases, we will use the above interpretation. TLDR: This principle is confusing and barely affects scoring.

Scoring Rules (Fan)

Each scoring rule gives points depending on how challenging it is to get a hand that satisfies that rule. Points from flowers do not contribute to the requirement of 8 points.
