Here are a couple more questions and answers from the April 2014 Mah Jongg Madness
newsletter written by Gladys Grad, the Grand Master of American-Style Mah Jongg:
Q. If I put up an exposure that has a Joker in it, and someone exchanges a tile for that
Joker….and at the end of the game I get Mah Jongg with no Jokers showing, do I get the
bonus for a “Jokeless Hand?” The other players said “no.” What is right?
A. You had a good Jokerless Mah Jongg and deserve the bonus. It didn’t matter what you
exposed before, as long as there were no Jokers exposed when you declared Mahj.
