Re: WWYD 2013-03-25

5-bam Chances are, we'll have to discard this eventually, so it may as well be now while it's probably safe. Unless the shape of the hand changes, I don't think we'd really want to pon the 5 anyway, since it means we'd either have to discard the dora or just keep it floating around. Not sure if that...

Re: WWYD 2013-03-11

Well, I voted south, but then realized discarding 8-crak 9-crak doesn't lower the... uke-ire?... of the hand, right? If you discard south then you lose 5-bam and :south waits. If you discard 8-crak then the wait for 7-crak is still covered by the 5-crak 6-crak shape. So after thinking about it more,...

The latest jongcast link is broken:

(Well, the link is probably fine, but it doesn't look like the file was uploaded yet.)

Re: Free Tenhou 15 day premium membership (ends 10/31)

Unless... did you register your account from September onwards? It seems like it counts the 3 days free trial (for new registrations) as a "succesful transaction". It SHOULDN'T! But it seems like it does. Notifying tsuno about it. That, of course, won't occur for "normal" accounts (i.e. those who h...

You may need to already have an ID, but you don't need to have paid anytime previously. I have never paid for tenhou but I got my account upgraded until... 11/10 it looks like.

Re: New Episode #59 10-Oct-2012 is up!

This week's podcast was interesting. http://reachmahjong.com/home/podcasts/jong-cast-61.mp3 I liked hearing about the fellow (was it horiuchi? Google points me towards maybe 堀内正人 as his full name or is that another mahjong playing horiuchi?) who wins tournaments but plays by calling tiles even in so...

Re: New Episode #59 10-Oct-2012 is up!

I can't easily access Ron^2 given my choice of platforms to run my machines on I thought Ron^2 was written in Java. Isn't the whole point of Java that it runs on all platforms? Not that I doubt they could find a way to make it not work on whatever you use. The thing is that Ron² belongs to the JPML...

#60 17-Oct-2012 is up. Glad the podcasts are back, gives me something to listen to at work. Heard something about a Ron^2 meetup in there, which would be fun, I'd make an account for that (Maybe I have one but I don't remember the details..). Though, if Jenn/Garthe have issues with being allowed to ...

Re: Wait test anyone?

Ahh, I'm awful at that. It's easy to be spoiled by riichi/ron buttons in those situations. You might already know it, but there's this game that you can play to kinda practice: http://www.gamedesign.jp/flash/bamboo/bamboo.html Took me a while, but I see the 8-dot 9-dot wait in your example. Don't se...

Re: WWYD 2012/10/13

8-dot Since North didn't ron off the 5-dot I think 8-dot is safe *enough* that it's not worth breaking tenpai. Also there's no :west showing and it's non-yakuhai for everyone, so I feel like there's a decent chance it would come out. But with either choice that keeps you in tenpai, there are only 3 ...

Re: Mahjong Group Assembled! Need Advice on Rules...

I haven't played in real life, so you can take my suggestion with a grain of salt, but I can at least speak from my online learning experience: When I started playing online I only knew riichi and yakuhai. I would riichi and then when I won I would see the names of 4 other yaku fly across the screen...

Re: WWYD 2012/10/06

8s isn't slower . To tenpai, that is. The tenpai chance is just the same as 7m. They are both basic shapes of a 16 tile ukeire . 8s is 12 tile ukeire. The ryanmen waits are sharing a 6s. Were you thinking of 7s? Or am I missing something? http://tenhou.net/2/?q=557m222789p45788s Anyway thanks for t...

Re: WWYD 2012/10/06

Ok... You can all vent at me now! I dropped the 8-bam and received a disgusting amount of luck. Feel free to pull apart my strategy! Well, I would have also dropped the 8-bam if I had actually been playing this hand and didn't have the time to sit here and count the tiles that would get to tenpai. ...
