At the point when that gathering of tiles is gone, the subsequent stage starts. Tiles are chosen from the moderate sized gathering, and development of the divider will before long start.

When you complete one of these regions, your score is the quantity of tiles times the quantity of hues inside. so any 2 unique hues copies your score, and having every one of the 3 hues significantly increases it. likewise, streets that are 4 tiles or longer score twofold.
At the point when all tiles in the gathering utilized in stage 2 have been played, the last gathering is tapped. Presently when you cause scoring, every player places 2 dividers (each in turn thus). the game closures when all tiles are played or the parts of the bargains are inside 5 segments of one another.
