1.Tongits Real Money online is a game played by 3 players using a deck of 52 standard playing cards. Each player starts with 12 cards, except for the starting player who has 13 cards. The remaining cards are placed in the central stack.
2.At the beginning of each Tongits Real Money online game, the cards will be shuffled. After determining the starting player, the system will deal the cards clockwise while the players play counterclockwise.
3.The starting player is randomly selected for the first game, while the winner of the previous game goes first in the second Tongits Real Money online game. If the starting player quits during a game, a new starting player will be randomly selected in the next round.
4.When it is the player's turn, the player's avatar will show a countdown which if it ends and the player has not played any card, the system will automatically dump the highest card.
5.After the previous player dumped the card. If this card can be grouped by the next player's card, the player can choose to take the dumped card or draw a new card from the draw pile. If this card could not be grouped, the next player will get a card from the draw pile.
6.Next, the player must collect any possible hand melds and discard any unnecessary cards.The process of picking and discarding cards continues until a player wins by declaring "Tong-its", calling a draw, or until there are no more cards left in the central stack. If the central stack runs out, points will be calculated from the cards in their hands, and the player with the lowest total score wins. In the case of a tie, the player who drew the last card from the central deck is declared the winner.
7.Cards that can be added to all exposed sets of cards cannot be discarded.
8.When each countdown ends, if the player has not taken any action, the system will automatically draw a card or discard one. For offline players, the system will take over and perform the draw or discard actions on behalf of the offline player.
1.Melds are sets of cards that are grouped together in a specific way. While melds do not directly contribute points to a player's score, they are an important part of the game strategy. This is because certain melds can help players to reduce the point count in their hands by allowing them to get rid of high-scoring cards.
In a Tongits Real Money Online duel, players may try to form sets and melds to gain an advantage over their opponents. However, if a player does not have any sets or melds in the show card or special card during a duel, their cards will be burned.
2.Types of meld:
Sets: A set consists of three cards of the same rank. For example, a set can be made up of three Kings, three 7s, or three Aces.
Run: A run consists of three or more cards of consecutive ranks in the same suit. For example, a run can be made up of 3♥️, 4♥️, and 5♥️, or 8♠️, 9♠️, 10♠️, and J♠️.
Three of a Kind: three equally ranked cards
Four of a Kind: four cards of the same rank/number
Straight Flush: At least three consecutive cards of the suit.
Secret Meld: Four cards of the same rank or five or more consecutive cardof the same suit.
At the end of the game, a player with a Secret Meld in their hand will not have their cards burned.
If a player contains only normal meld sets and there are no exposed sets on the table, they are not allowed to initiate a Fight or Challenge.
A player with a Secret Meld can participate in a Fight initiated by another player, even if they have no exposed sets on the table.
Try to play all your cards as quickly as possible before the remaining cards are depleted. The fewer cards in your hand, the lower the total point value, and the greater the chance of winning.
If a player can put all their cards in the open area or discard them all, and the total point value of the meld is 0, then the player wins with Tongits.
To start a fight, the player needs to put down a meld on the table, and no player drops any card on any of his/her melds in that round.
When a player initiates a fight, if there is a meld on the show cards or a player has a special card, another player can challenge. Players can accept or fold. If a player fails to choose either accept or fold, after the countdown, the system will automatically fold the player's card.
If a player does not have any meld in their open card area or any secret set in their hand, the cards will be burned.
When all the cards have been drawn from the deck, the game ends.
Players without a meld or secret meld set in the open area will be burned and lose the game. The player with the lowest remaining point value wins.
If a player exits or disconnects during the game, they will enter into an AI mode, where the AI will automatically play the game for them. Players can reconnect to the room to continue playing the game if the game is still ongoing. Otherwise, they will enter into a new game again.
If a player initiates a challenge, and two players have the same point value, the player who accepts the challenge wins. If three players have the same point value, the player (player 1) who initiates the challenge's next player (player 2) wins.
If all cards have been drawn and multiple players have the same minimum point value, the player who drew the last card wins. If the player who drew the last card has the highest point value, and the other two players have the same lower point value, then the next player who drew the last card wins.
(A)Ace represents 1 point.
All J Q K represent 10 points.
All other cards (2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10) are worth their own point value.
A and K in the winner's meld or hand count as bonus cards. For each A or K in the winning meld or hand, the bonus increases by 1.
A and K placed in the winner's meld by other players, or A and K placed in other players' melds by the winner, do not count as bonus cards.
