A set of Okey has 106 cards, the cards will have 4 different colors, numbered from 1 to 13, and each number has 8 cards, which are two red, two yellow, two blue and two. black. In addition, there are two special cards, called wild cards in the game, whose function is to replace all other cards.
Preparatory stage: After shuffling the cards, decide the dealer by guessing punches or rolling the dice, and then decide the color number of the ace okey by rolling the dice.
Game stage: Take turns to draw cards, the dealer takes three cards (five cards at a time) and has 15 cards in his hand, and the other three also take three cards (five cards for the first two times, four cards for the last time), and there are 14 cards in his hand. Then start to take and discard cards, play mahjong in the order of taking and discarding cards, and play counterclockwise. The dealer discards the card first, and the discarded card must be turned over in the middle so that other players can see it.
Winning stage: The purpose of losing cards is to "make a pair of cards in hand". There are two ways of pairing, one is the same color, the other is the same number of different colors, but both are at least 3 to be considered a group. Unlike mahjong, more than 3 can also be grouped. The person who wins is the fastest to get all the cards in his hand into pairs.
Whether it's the number of cards, the way the table is set, or the rules for winning, Okey is quite similar to Mahjong. But there are also obvious differences. For example, there is a "sahte okey" blank card in Okey, which can replace any card and form a pair with other cards; Okey has more ways to win cards. Can be the same number of different colors.
