San-Jū Tsuppari [三十ツッパリ - さんじゅうつっぱり, lit. “Thirty Palm Thrusts”] is a Hana-Awase variant for three players, with very simple rules.
The name of the game is in reference to the par score of the game which is 30 points.
The game only features 2 yaku: Poetry Ribbons and Blue Ribbons.
Play doesn’t stop when one of the yaku are made; the round ends only when all players run out of cards in hand.
Players check for yaku, then do yaku settlement. Then they check their captured card points, subtract 30 points from their score, and do the score settlement.
Players check if they have captured either 3 Poetry Ribbons or 3 Blue Ribbons.
Each Yaku is worth 20 points; in other words, each of the other two players must give 10 points worth of captured cards to the player who has one Yaku.
Players count their captured card points, then they subtract the par score of 30 points to get the settlement score, and they do the settlement accordingly (negative score means you lose points; positive score means you gain points).
Settlement Score = Total of captured card points - 30
The winner in a round becomes the dealer for the next round.
The card values are non-standard. Note that there are only two Brights: The Curtain and the Phoenix. (The Crane, the Full Moon, and the Rainman are considered Animal cards.)

The total card points in the deck is 90 points, and dividing it by 3 players, give the par score of 30 points.

San-zoku Tsuppari [三束ツッパリ - さんぞくつっぱり, lit. “Three-bunch Palm Thrusts”] is a Hana-Awase variant with rules entirely identical to San-Jū Tsuppari, except all points are multiplied by 10, making the par score 300 points, or 3 bunches (in this context, a bunch is 100 points).
