Follow the actual rules of the game
In the actual game of Phase 10, when someone goes down and out on the first hand, every player gets one chance to play their hand. You all do not have that option so players are just out of luck when someone goes down and out. There have been several times when I could have completed my phase if the actual rules were followed. I have taken a long break from playing the game out of frustration because this basic rule is not included in the game.
