How to play

Twelve cards are dealt to each player, thirteen are dealt to the dealer, and the remaining cards are piled in the middle. When the dealer dumps a card, the game starts. The following player may choose to take a card from the central stack or pick up the discard card if it completes or adds to a set they already own.

Until someone wins by Tongits, initiates a battle or the central stack runs out of cards, people collect, pick, and discard cards. In such a case, each player counts the points on the cards they currently possess, and the one with the fewest points wins.

Some notes for players in Tongits


To win the game, a player must gather a set of matching cards known as Meld. A player can choose to lay down or keep a meld after they've collected it. To call or challenge a fight, a player must reveal at least one meld; if they have a "secret," they may challenge but not engage in combat.


A player wins by Tongits if they can use every card in their deck in combinations, connect to an opponent's set, expose every set, or get rid of every card.


  • A player must place a meld on the table to initiate a fight, and during that round, no player may discard any cards on any of their melds.
  • When one player initiates combat, the other players have the option to fold or challenge the player who does not have any hidden or exposed melds.
  • Regardless of the card rotation, the player to the right of the person who called the fight wins if they have a higher count than the other two players who are tied and have a lower count.

Deck Empty

  • The game is over when there are no more cards in the central stack. A player forfeits their turn if they have no exposed melds. The winner is the player with the fewest overall points.
  • The player who removes the final card from the central stack wins if there is a tie for the fewest points.
  • The player to the right of the person who selected the final card wins if the two players who tied did not choose the final card.
