Same Discards in a Row (Article ID 124)
Abstract: The League recommends that a player not call a follow up tile that is identical to the previously discarded tile “same.” This ruling is not found in Mah Jongg Made Easy.
Question from a player: When the same tile is discarded one after the other, can it be called “same”?
Answer from the NMJL: “A follow-up tile should be named by the discarder…not the word “same”…”
