A Discard

If you cannot take or build, you must discard.

A discard is placed as a single card in the centre, not on top of other cards.

Always restore your hand to five cards after every turn.

This is the only way the cards in the centre are replenished (to be used in later takes and builds).

You may discard any card from your hand. However, where possible, plan ahead and discard a card you could use on your next turn.

Discard example 1

Having two 12s, you would discard one of them.

If it is still there for your next turn, you could take with your remaining 12.

Discard example 2

Not having two of any number, but with your 4 and 5 adding to 9, you would discard the 4 or the 5. If it is still there for your next turn, you could add the other number to it for a build of 9 in your next turn. If none of the above opportunities present themselves, or if you are in doubt, it is suggested you discard a low card.
