### Scoring variations

**Settling tables – Overview**

Four Winds 2 supports three scoring systems that use a settling table to determine the
final score for the hand.

Faan-Laak scoring system uses a simple look-up table where a
certain amount *faans* (merits for the hand) corresponds a specified amount of final
points. *Laaks *are multiples of limit points, the doubling of which is regulated
by the settling table.

Mangan scoring system determines the final score by using
the combination of basic tile points *(fu)* and doubling factors *(han)* as
the criteria for final score.

Regulated doubles system uses a simple look-up table where a
certain amount *doubles* corresponds a specified amount of multipliers. The
multipliers thus achieved are used to multiply the total point scores earned by
the hand.
