The number tiles are divided into 4 different color sets, each color set contains 2 groups of number tiles ranging from 1 to 13.When the first round starts, a player will be randomly chosen as the dealer.A set consists of 3 or more tiles of the same number and all different colors, while a run is formed by 3 or more tiles of consecutive numbers and the same color.Note that 1-2-3 and 12-13-1 are valid runs, while 13-1-2 is not.After each round, points are calculated as follows: When a player wins with sets and/or runs, the other players will lose 2 points; When a player wins with sets and/or runs after discarding a wild tile, the other players will lose 4 points; When a player wins with 7 pairs, the other players will lose 4 points; When a player wins with 7 pairs after discarding a wild tile, the other players will lose 8 points.When a player's score reaches 0 or less, the game ends.The players will be able to see the faces of their own tiles but not those of the others.The remaining tiles will be placed face-down on the table as the stock piles, with the revealed tile used for determining the wild tile placed face-up on the top of a pile.
I'd met my former husband in the then-Soviet Moscow, where I'd moved from Paris in search of a job in journalism. In Cairo — I was working on a book about Egypt, so moving there seemed the logical choice — I found strange comfort in the upheaval.He was a Tunisian journalist coming to Cairo to start a new job, and he wanted my advice about neighborhoods and rents. A few days after he arrived, he asked if I'd like to get together. In the meantime, I checked out his Facebook profile and realized that he was much younger than me.Based on the scant information I saw, I couldn't devise any calculation that would get him out of his 20s.I didn't want to get into another serious relationship any time soon. As if anything in my life had gone according to plan…One night, I noticed a Friend request on Facebook from someone I didn't know.
One single tile cannot be used to complete more than 1 winning pattern.
