The pile will be separated into 4 parts . Bettors will have the main task as predicting the result of the remained objects which are the result after removing by using the bamboo stick. The game having name Fantan due to its meaning in Chinese as “repeatedly spreading out,” which relates to the way the coins or other objects are made up on the table.

It is regularly taken place by a group of people in a room or cellar of the ground floor, or under the basement. As usual , there is a white paper sheet written the notifications hanging and announces that Fantan is available all day , both day and night.

Fantan Game play

The square in the centre is named as t’án ching or known as a spreading out square. This square combines a tin piece with four sides numbered from right to left 1,2,3, and 4 in order.This piece has about eighteen inches in perimeter.

There are 2 man manages to control the game. One of them is known as the t’án kún or “ruler ” . His position belong to the edge of the table which stands for the “one” side of the tablet. Meanwhile the left one is called as the ho kún whose position corresponds to clerk and cashier, on the left side of the table which we mentioned above . The t’án kún will handle some bright objects symbolizing for the cash  out of the pile and use a cup or bowl having shallow size which has diameter about three and one-half inches. Next , Bettor will make their wagers on the predicted numbers they have chosen on the dish plate. Later, the t’án kún will remove the cover and announce the fours, at the same time without any touching them by hand. He will use a wooden or bamboo stick having eighteen inches in length to carry out.

There are some different terms to call these fours following . If the coming out result is one, of course after removing as many fours as possible, “one” is considered to be “opened”; if two or three stays still, “two ” or “three” is  called as “opened,” or if an even number is still in the pile without any remainder, the “four” is named as “opened.”

The progress is carried out without notifications or noises until the result is clear in front of people , the large pile will be in charge of  the divided”cash” by the t’án kún and got another of it in which he covers before .

The cashier will place a money-box along with him to pay money for the winner. The payout will be deducted the house edge which brings the bookie benefit. It not matters how much the bettor is ready to spend , the opportunities for both sides are equal between the players and the house .

Money or counters or chips are placed directly on the table by the players . As long as the bet objects whose values are accepted , usually own different denominations. They are collected usually into a heap located within the square. Different objects will represent different value. For example ts’ín tsz’ or Chinese “cash,” values ten cents or in another situation pák chü considered as “white pearls” will correspond to $1. Further examples , hak chü or “black pearls,” values $5; chessmen are $10, and dominoes 5 worth $50. Other evaluations are sometimes different from them.

Basic Rules

About the wheeling and dealing

In order to choose the one dealing first, a random player will distribute cards to each gambler till one of them , there is someone receives a jack. Next , the one getting a jack will make the first deal. The turn will be according to the clockwise, the deal will pass to another place for the next orders. If you want to earn money by the game , make the first  ” ante “— a compulsory unit , before getting the initial steps. (You can place any wagers you desire ; only a small bet will make you begin the game with the hot race.). After the cards are shuffled and turned to the next player on the left , they will be given out and faced down following the clockwise . The number of cards each player will be the same if there are four people joining in . If there are three or more players, some of them will have more cards than the remainder  (the reason is you can’t separate 52 equally into 3, 5, or 6 parts ). No worry, this inequality will be improved due to the changes of getting an additional cards in every turn.

In case you are in just for betting ,  you would know there are few cards which are additional to complete the number of cards for the beginning.

Hit the fan by the cards

The first chance to begin the game belong to the player on the left of the dealer . In case this one got one 7 , he will face-up the card on the table. If not , he overcomes .

If the participant has more than a 7 , do not give out this card which belongs to the suit containing more cards. Give out the 7 in which you have the end-cards that are tough to deal like aces and kings, or 2s and queens.

Then after the beginning , one of these players get started with a 7, the following participant apply these ideas:

  • In case,  the another suit contains a 7 , do not hesitate to give out a 7. Put down the card as long as its value is not the same as the other 7.
  • No need to play another 7 if the player has a different choice which is  a legal move you’d rather make.
  • Rise up or down on any 7. If there is an 8 or a 6 in the suitable suit,  put the card down next to the 7.
  • If there is no possible move, you can choose to pass.

Running high and low in all the suits.

Next , we will offer another way to play. The Q of spades or 3 of spades, the 9 of hearts or 2 of hearts, the 10 of diamonds or 4 of diamonds, and the 9 of clubs or 6 of clubs are accepted . The participants can choose to continue the game unless he can . The first person runs out of all his cards will be the winner and the play will stop . The pot will be taken by this winner , in case you’re joining in with stakes However , before it happens , every participant takes a unit inside according the value on their cards remained .
