Japanese symbol illustrating the title of chapter Draw and PassDraw and Pass

If you don’t have a card to play, draw one from the Croupier. Then either play that new card if you can, or say “Pass” for the next player to play.

Expert info

Frequently asked: After getting some penalty cards, the player is still expected either to play or draw one more card from the Croupier.

For example, let's say someone plays a Seven at you, and you can't defend so you draw two cards. You are now expected to play. If you don't have any cards matching the card on the table, you have to draw one as usual, before you are allowed to say "Pass" and let the next player go. It doesn't matter that you already took those penalty cards from the Croupier before that.
