If, during the excitement of the game, a player makes a mistake, he, or any of the other players who notices the error will call out ''Dutch!"

When a player shouts this, everyone must stop play immediately, and not disturb any of the cards which have been played. The misplaced cards will then be returned to their original positions and the game resumes. The scorekeeper will act as a referee if necessary.
