Each player tries to score points by getting "groups" or "runs". A "group" is 3 or 4 tiles with the same number but different colours and a "run" is 3 or more tiles in the same color and in a consecutive order. Each turn you lay down tiles or pick up a single tile from the pool. You can't pick up and play at the same turn. Tiles you have laid down can be manipulated in a lot of different ways and to win that round you must empty your rack.
