• At the start of the game each player takes 14 tiles from the pool (2 face down stacks of 7 tiles).

• Players have a time limit of 1 minute per turn. If, during this time period a player has failed to make a successful play, all tiles remaining on the table (not as sets) must be returned to the player’s rack, in addition to 3 penalty tiles from the pool.

• A set on the table that includes a joker may not be manipulated while it contains the joker. It can be added to, but cannot be split apart, unless the joker is replaced

• The tournament will be played in three rounds of four games each. The player that wins the most  games is the winner of the round. In the event of more than one person with the same number of wins, the person with the most points will be deemed the winner.
