Discarding Tiles

A player has to discard a tile from his or her stake after he or she has been dealt a tile from the Wall or has completed a Chow, Pung or Kong by picking up a tile discarded by another player. If the player completes a Kong or is dealt a Flower or Season tile, then the player first is dealt a Loose Tile as a replacement for this tile. A player does not discard a tile when they go Mah Jongg. If none of the other players claims a discarded tile, then this tile is out of the game and can't be claimed at a later stage. Play continues with the next player taking the next available tile from the Wall.
