4.1 Scoring a winning hand
All players at the table are responsible for ensuring that each winning hand is scored correctly and to the maximum points.
First ﬁnd the number of fan (doubles): Add the number of fan given by the yaku (at least one), the number of dora tiles, kan
dora tiles and, in case of a riichi hand, the number of ura dora in the hand. This sum is the fan value of the hand.
Then the base value of the hand, the minipoints, is calculated. Round the number up to the next 10. (e.g. 32 minipoints are
rounded up to 40). In case of a seven pairs hand, the hand is worth 25 minipoints and there is no rounding up. For hands with
ﬁve or more fan the minipoints are irrelevant. The tables are
further described in 4.1.3. To the value in the table are added 100 for each counter on the table in case of self-draw, and
300 in case of winning on a discard. In addition any riichi bets from players who didn’t win the hand are collected by the winner.
In case more than one player wins at the same time, the discarder settles the score with each winner individually. Each winner
receives the value of the hand including the value of counters in play.
In case more than one player wins at the same time, the riichi bets from players who declared riichi without winning go to the
winner closest to the discarder’s right. Riichi declarers that win, always get their riichi bet back. When scoring is done with
sticks, players should put the sticks on the table where all players can see them during the exchange.
When scoring is done with sticks, players are obliged to count up their sticks when asked to by opponents. The game continues if
a player’s score goes below zero; the player borrows score sticks from an opponent or the referee.
You always get minipoints for one the three following ways of winning:
Minipoints for winning:
Concealed on a discard 30
Seven pairs (no further minipoints are added) 25
Otherwise (Self-draw or Open hand) 20
Add minipoints for pungs and kongs in the hand. Chows have no minipoint value. If
the winning tile finishes a pung, it counts as a concealed pung in case of self-draw, and it
counts as an open pung in case of winning on a discard.
