Love this game but we ran into a rules question we couldn't find an answer to in the rule book. What should you do when a player can't pick up any tiles? That is, the only colors left to pick up are ones they cannot place in their pattern lines because either the pattern line already has that color on the pattern wall or the pattern line is all filled up. So do you skip their turn, have them pick tiles and place them in the box, or pick tiles and they go to the floor line?

You pick tiles and place them on your floor line (obviously worth choosing the colour with the least number of tiles to limit the damage).

Edit: This is covered in the Floor Line rules "Any tiles you have picked that you cannot or do not want to place according to the rules, you must place in your floor line..."

and in the rare case that your floor is full, then the extra tiles just go back in the box, you get no penalties for these.

Full disclosure, I thought this was going to be a thread about how you were unable to physically pick up the tiles with your fingers.

A player may/must always pick up tiles. A player may not always be able to place the tiles in his pattern rows.

Me too. I thought it was a problem arising from eating greasy food at the gaming table.
