Mahjong Soul has the same tile count as other mahjong games. There are 34 type of tiles, and each type of tile comes in a multiple of four. All tiles fall under one of five groups, being: Man, Pin, Sou, Wind, and Dragon. Each player will start with 13 tiles in their hand. For every player’s turn, he/she will draw a tile from the wall or claim a discarded tile from another player. Claiming a discarded time from another player will temporarily give this player 14 tiles in his/her hand. If the player has a winning hand of four groups and one pair (four sequences/triplets plus one pair) and the player has a valid yaku, then he/she can declare a winning hand.
