Peter, your comment is well taken. You are right that dropping and picking up tiles could be used as a stalling tactic or due to lack of experience by a beginner. I suppose the game could get very tedious if both players did this. I would think that an astute player could take advantage of such a game by his opponent to develop his position better. Taken to an absurd degree, the 3-times repetition rule or the 50-move rules would result in stalemate. Your suggestion to force a move every 3 moves could be implemented, however, during the opening such a rule might stifle legitimate positional drops.
