Re:Mahjong set + table

Re:game recording for analysis. Good or bad idea?

>>This is on the \'higher level\' tables you speak of, at least pretty much as high as it\'ll get online

Re:Sites list

I was able to make an account in toupai but I cant read japanese. Does anyone know a site with a english guide or know how to navigate around the game?

Re:Expert Technique Mahjong: Cheating

There\'s a game called Akko de Pon Ikasama Hourouki. which you can cheat in, on the DS.

It\'s kinda fun, especially when an other players gets the chun and haku pairs you stacked in your wall!

Maybe a \"Mahjong Entertainment\" forum for discussion of mahjong manga, anime, videogames and maybe televised mahjong?
